The Logistics program (LOGSCI) provides students with the opportunity to learn and exercise state-of-the-art management knowledge and tools to solve defense acquisition and logistics problems. In addition, students have the opportunity to pursue a systems view of logistics management. For DoD-sponsored full-time or part-time students, the LOGSCI program requires 12 months (4 academic quarters) of full-time study and begins in June of each year, or 36 months (12 academic quarters) of part-time distance- learning-based study beginning in January of each year. Typically, only those DoD sponsored students selected for in-residence may participate in full-time program and only those DoD-sponsored students selected for the distance-learning track may participate in the part-time program. Other individuals, such as civilian DoD employees or defense contractor employees may participate in this program as space allows. This program leads to a Master of Science in Logistics.
All students are required to complete a research or design project under the direction of a faculty advisor. This study project requirement provides an introduction to the research process, strengthens the student’s writing skills, and augments the AFIT/ENS research program. It is intended for students to apply the processes, methods, and tools, acquired throughout their academic program, to a relevant DoD war fighting problem. The project is documented in an advisor approved format and defended orally. Students will take 4 to 6 course hours (depending on track) of LOGM 791 and 4 hours of LOGM 601.
