Become a Master of Transport

A new paper focusing on the use of the Internet in transport is being offered by Lincoln University - with the help of the Importers Institute.

Daniel Silva, Secretary of the Institute, developed and will lecture the paper, called "Transport and Communications". It includes a practical exercise on how to build an interactive website, and topics include:

* Stages of Development in Web Presence * Some Elements of Successful Web Design * The Internet and Disintermediation in Supply Chains * Online Quotes Case Study * Security Models in Tracking * Linking Web Pages to Databases

The paper is part of the Professional Studies Programme of Lincoln University. The programme provides a group of masters-level programmes for students who want to undertake further tertiary study, but are not able to commit either to full-time study or attend on-campus lectures.

One of the programme's specialisation areas is transport management - aimed at professionals who have work experience in global transport (shipping and aviation), logistics and supply chain management, or in urban and regional transport planning and policy.

While the course is conducted mainly by correspondence, it includes one week of live tutorials. These will be held in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. The cost per subject is approximately $1000. Students will have to buy a limited number of texts, but most readings are provided.

The programme is available to graduates with a bachelors degree who also have at least two years' relevant professional experience. Applicants with other non-degree, tertiary qualifications who have substantial relevant experience may also be considered for the course.

You can begin studying in the first or second semester of each year - semester one begins mid-February and semester two begins in July. You can apply for the second semester intake right up until mid-June.

The Importers Institute recommends this programme to members who want to manage supply chains in accordance with international best practice. Further information and an application form are available from Lincoln's website, or from
