Logistics and Transportation Engineering major
"I chose this major because it combines everything I like: engineering, transportation and the import/export business. It’s a new and demanding major that offers great opportunities and demands considerable knowledge of math and physics. At USIL, I’ve found excellent teachers with a lot of experience who always help us solve and analyze cases. In addition, we take English courses. The English language is very important in our field, as it requires professionals capable of working abroad.”
