As engineering systems become more complex it is increasingly difficult to show that they will operate safely for their whole life. The programme addresses this problem by exposing students to the knowledge and techniques of safety engineering appropriate to a wide spectrum of industries.
It is suitable for those from a conventional engineering background who find themselves operating in a safety related industry, engineers in the early part of their careers, and those in senior management.
In addition to the generic safety modules, two modules deal with specific industries ? Nuclear Engineering and Aerospace. Many high level industrial experts contribute to the course, as visiting speakers, and an important aspect of the work is a critical consideration of real accident case studies. Our graduates are much in demand.
The taught element of this course consists of eight modules in total; four per academic year.
Engineering Research Methods
Human Factors in Safety
Nuclear Engineering Systems or Aerospace Engineering Systems
Strategic Health, Safety and Environmental Management
The Design of Safety Critical Systems
