Logistics and Transport Management

Exchange programme

The exchange programme Logistics and Transport Management consists of two separate semester programmes in English.

Fall Semester

Rotterdam is the biggest and most sophisticated port in Europe. During the minor Maritime and Port Management you will be introduced to the most important aspects of maritime transport and sustainable port management. This exchange programme consists of 30 ECTS.

In the first half of the programme we focus on maritime transport. Basic economic knowledge will be gained in the course Maritime Economics, Law and Insurance. Next to this there will be a course about the technical and operational aspects of sea transport like Ship Operations and Management, Registration & Classification, the handling of cargo on board ships and maintenance. This will prepare you for the Maritime Business Game in which you will perform as a shipping company in the worldwide market.

In the second part of the programme you will be introduced to the topic Ports and Hinterland. Courses are about Port Management, Terminal Management and Hinterland Transportation. To support all this there will be trips to the London and the ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam, including Maasvlakte II. People working in this field of expertise are invited to give guest lectures. The second quarter will end with the practical course “Sustainable Port Development” in which you are challenged to develop an improvement plan for an existing port of your choice.
