Logistics program celebrates graduates

Cy-Fair College recently celebrated three of the Logistics Management program’s inaugural graduates including Kevin Cox, from left, Gilbert Jimison and Juan Barron.

Ruben Howard, program director and logistics professor, said he is excited about the future of these logistics professionals.

“The skills these students gained from this associate’s degree program will enhance their careers, salaries and make them more marketable in the industry,” Howard said.

Logistics Management involves the planning, implementing, and controlling the flow and storage of goods, services, and related information from point of origin to point of consumption
to conform to customers’ requirements. The courses, offered in the evenings, weekends and online, include trips to industries in the area and guest lectures from experts in the field.

A wide variety of options are available for career seekers in this field. Among the career options are warehouse operations, inventory or quality control, traffic or transportation management, material handling operations and logistics or distribution planning.

“Cy-Fair College launched the logistics program in 2004 in response to a growing need for people trained in logistics,” said Howard. “This fall, in addition to the four-semester the Associate of Applied Science degree in logistics management, we will offer a one-semester First Line Logistics Leader Certificate program as well.”
