LMS Head’s Message
Welcome to PolyU LMS website.
Logistics has a long history. Even before it was methodically structured as a business specialty, people have been practising it. Nowadays, logistics is a complex business science, an important arm in running a business. Therefore, the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies strives to cultivate professionals to serve organization in the modern world through education and research.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes cover an extensive range of topics in logistics, maritime studies, operations management, quality management, shipping, and supply chain relationships. The programmes are delivered by distinguished faculty dedicated to combine academic excellence and real-world experience. In recent years, the Department has been working to extend our expertise into aviation management and logistics to meet with the burgeoning importance of aviation management. We actively responded by launching the BBA (Hons) in Aviation Management and Logistics programme in September 2017. This programme is the only government-funded and aviation-related Bachelor of Business Administration programme in Hong Kong. By introducing this programme, we aim to nurture young talents to join the world’s largest international air cargo hub, and provide expertise to the aviation industry.
Regarding our research, we aim at creating new knowledge and developing streamlined solutions for the industry and the society at large, enabling the world to work in a more effective manner. Moreover, with the meticulous work of our academics, our research in maritime studies, shipping and port ranks highly around the world. We have a group of world-class scholars in the areas of supply chain and operations management, and a notable research force in this domain.
We sincerely invite you to explore our website to learn about our programme, our cutting-edge research, and our distinguished faculty. We look forward to walking the path of your life journey together with you.
