The Georgia Tech Health & Humanitarian Logistics Center will be offering a new Humanitarian Logistics Professional Certificate Program in 2012.  This executive learning program is designed for practitioners in non-governmental organizations, government, industry, and military who are active participants in humanitarian relief operations and seeking to build skills to improve decision making in preparedness, response, and system design.

The three course series fulfills the need for greater capacity building in the health and humanitarian sectors and the completion of all three courses results in a logistics certificate. The courses will be taught by three professors from the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Associate Professor Ozlem Ergun, Joseph C. Mello Professor Pinar Keskinocak, and Harold R. and Mary Anne Nash Associate Professor Julie Swann.

The courses will include many interactive components, such as case studies and games, which help professionals in the humanitarian world link the challenges and decision-making trade-offs they face in practice with the systematic approaches, tools, and techniques presented.

The Center for Health & Humanitarian Logistics at Georgia Tech, a unit of the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute and a part of the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, works to improve humanitarian logistics (including short or long term, man-made or natural disasters) and ultimately the human condition by system transformations through education, outreach, projects and research.
