Students in the online Master of Supply Chain Transportation & Logistics begin the degree program with the mandatory Residency in Seattle. During the Residency you’ll complete the first course in the program, SCTL 501: Introduction to Supply Chain Transportation & Logistics, while engaging with others in the program and getting familiar with UW resources.
The Residency is a valuable opportunity for new students to work together in person. You’ll begin developing personal relationships that can aid your online collaboration efforts throughout the program. It’s also a great time to meet our faculty and staff and advisory board members.
Activities during the Residency include:
Active learning with your peers to build foundational knowledge and make connections
Training on how to use the online learning environment
Evening reception to network with the advisory board and current students
Discussions with industry leaders on real-world problems in the field
Company or plant tours
The Residency typically takes place a week before autumn quarter begins. Full participation is required.
