Why Choose Our Programmes?
Every class and lab we offer is taught by experienced faculty members who support and interact with students in small classes. All full-time SCM faculty members have earned doctorate degrees from well-known local or overseas universities and have extensive teaching, research and industry experiences as well as strong industry connections.
In addition to the campus computing labs and language centres, our students gain full access to the Decision Sciences Technology Laboratory (DST Lab). This facility is designed to provide an accessible layout, friendly to creative engagement and group learning. It provides all the most relevant industry standard and state-of-the-art software and hardware for conducting research projects and gaining hands-on technology experience.
Furthermore, the Virtual Reality and Big Data Analytics Centre (VRBD Centre) has been established to enhance development in teaching and research, with the support of a fully immersive and interactive visualisation system. This virtual reality system provides vivid stereoscopic 3D views of simulations and walkthroughs in disciplines such as supply chain operations, geometrical theory, financial modelling, healthcare logistics operations, and cultural preservation. The facilities enable learning individually and in groups a multidimensional and interactive way.
