Two lecturers in the Department of Logistics, Heinri Freiboth and Ulrike Kussing, will present the following research: Preparing Logistics Honnours students for the workplace: Are we equipping them with the right skills? This topic mainly came about from questions that they’ve had for a while:

  • Are we sufficiently preparing our students for the workplace?
  • What can we do to make the supervision of Honours research projects more rewarding?

This seminar will be a discussion of what we learned from our joint supervision of a group of Logistics Honours students during 2020 and 2021. The outcome of these research projects was that it provided us with feedback from recent Logistics Honours graduates on the skills that the logistics workplace requires from them, and whether they feel that their studies prepared them for it. Joint supervision created synergies for us as supervisors, and also opportunities for greater peer learning amongst the students.

The seminar can be attended either online on MS Teams or in-person in the Van Der Sterr building, room 3022. Contact for more information.
