The Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute (SCL) is a unit of the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. The Stewart School is the largest Industrial Engineering program in the United States (more than sixty faculty members, 1000 undergraduate students and 400 graduate students). For twenty consecutive years, U.S. News and World Report has ranked the Stewart School as the best undergraduate and graduate industrial engineering program in the United States.
For more than 20 years, the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute has been the premier academic institution for supply chain and logistics education, innovation, and leadership. While SCL has resources and programs in supply chain management, its primary focus is on development of new tools for analysis, design and management of logistics processes, and new concepts and strategies for the practice of supply chain engineering.
SCL offers an extensive curriculum of open-enrollment supply chain executive education courses. The curriculum includes comprehensive courses in logistics, transportation, warehousing and lean supply chain management. Since 1992, more than 6,500 logistics professionals have attended the program with more than 650 participants earning SCL’s Supply Chain and Logistics Certificate from Georgia Tech. In addition, the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers a part-time Executive Masters in International Logistics (EMIL) for mid-career executives.
The Supply Chain Executive Forum (SCEF) provides executives from leading supply chain organizations the opportunity to meet twice a year to discuss new and compelling ways to streamline operations and enhance profitability, and integrate supply chain strategy with corporate strategy.
SCL’s research utilizes the outstanding faculty and graduate student resources of the Stewart School. More than twenty Stewart School faculty members focus their research on supply chain and logistics problems. SCL research activities are organized around seven major research centers of excellence: Supply Chain Strategy, Warehousing and Distribution, Global Transportation, Manufacturing Logistics, Resource Scheduling, Health and Humanitarian Logistics, and China Logistics. SCL also opened a Trade, Innovation, and Productivity Center in Costa Rica and a Panama Logistics Innovation and Research Center.
IFC is a membership-based industry/academic joint initiative that identifies and resolves critical integration issues across the end-to-end food chain while focusing on designing, analyzing and continuously improving cold chains for perishable food products.
SCL’s Premier Industry Research Program, Leaders in Logistics provides a unique opportunity for select business and governmental organizations engaged in supply chain practice to interact with SCL’s faculty, students, and one another. Annual Membership includes a research project and education/outreach activities.
