Supply Chain Management Certificate


The Certificate in Supply Chain Management (CSCM) provides undergraduate engineering students with the opportunity to understand important concepts in supply chain management and develop technical and managerial skills which are highly valued in today’s corporate environment. The program also offers an international travel experience for students to gain hands-on exposure to global supply chain organizations.

Supply chain management encompasses not only the design and planning of supply chain activities, but also the execution, control and monitoring that help companies build a competitive infrastructure and create net value. The supply chain covers all areas, not just manufacturing and services, but also includes suppliers, retailers, warehouses, logistics and customer service; all functional areas involved in receiving and filling a customer’s order with a repeatable and satisfying experience. This certificate requires 15 credits to complete.

Enrollment is open to students in all of the undergraduate engineering programs in the Swanson School of Engineering. Students interested in the program should contact Dr. Karen Bursic (kbursic@pitt.edu) for more details.
