Throughout the entire course of study, you will work closely together with students on real-life industry projects. Within these projects, you can work on your own individual learning pathway. You will discover which role suits you best and you will ready yourself for this role. You will learn how to develop and fine-tune your own role by broadening or deepening your knowledge within your field of interest.
- Talent programme
If you are a real logistics talent, you may want to join our talent programme!
BUas offers a special programme for highly talented logistics students, which involves a scholarship and opportunities for prestigious work placement assignments and graduation projects at leading companies.
Serious Gaming is used at BUas to provide an insight into logistics processes. In the propaedeutic phase (first year), logistics students are given seven weeks to work on this game, called Blokko. Finances, planning, everything they have learned is dealt with in the game, including new techniques such as blockchain. It is played throughout the entire building by moving lego bricks around the campus.
Working together on the future of logistics
Cooperation with industry partners is essential to our degree programmes in order to keep education up to date and relevant. What’s happening in the logistics field, what problems are professionals facing, and what questions do they have? Together with leading companies you will work on complex issues and help shape the logistics of the future. A substantial part of your studies consists of real-life, practice-based assignments. These assignments are drawn from the logistics industry, but also from sectors such as events and healthcare.
- Some examples
For Bravis Ziekenhuis in Bergen op Zoom and Roosendaal students conducted a study on waiting times in healthcare. For DHL students researched how to innovate the logistics chain.
Another example concerns the assignments carried out by students for the Breda-based festivals of Ploegendienst en Duikbootfestival. The students tackled subjects like mobility management, capacity management and site management. How do you get to and from the festival site safely, and what does that mean for the surrounding area? And for the timing or line-up of the festival? Festival visitors want quick access to food, drinks and toilets. How many facilities are needed and where should these be located? And what if something happens? Can the emergency services get there quickly and is there a crisis plan? Questions that need to be addressed if you want to create a happy and safe festival experience.
