Savannah State University Offering a New Degree Program in Information Technology and Logistics

Historically Black Savannah State University in Georgia is now offering a new degree program in computer information systems/logistics and supply chain program to support the growing community need for professionals with technical skills in logistics and supply chain management.

Designed to introduce students to cutting-edge technology including a variety of systems, programming languages, financial technology approaches, as well as, data analytics tools and methodologies, the new program within the university’s College of Business Administration will prepare students for industry professions and future careers. Faculty and students will engage in research and test new technology while working to improve existing technology and industry practices. The program will offer students the option to choose a focus in information systems, logistics, or a combination of the two.

“Savannah State University is uniquely positioned in the port city of Savannah,” said Shetia Butler Lamar, an assistant professor of computer information systems. “Our location offers niche opportunities to support the missions of local organizations which impact business and economic development. These relationships also provide opportunities for students to engage in experiential learning through practical projects, allowing them to apply what they are learning in the classroom.”

Dr. Lamar holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Savannah State University. She earned a doctorate in business administration at the University of Liverpool in England.
