Safety and Reliability Engineering

Program description

The programme provides an integrated approach to safety and reliability issues across most of the traditional branches of engineering, and allows students to specialise in various aspects of technical safety, including human factors engineering. This programme provides education and training for graduate engineers in the general area of safety engineering, reliability engineering, and loss prevention. Technical safety is not a subject which is adequately covered in most undergraduate degrees, so this MSc programme comprehends those topics relating to the safety and reliability of engineering products and systems, in a unified approach.

The aim is to provide an opportunity for graduate engineers to develop a career in safety and reliability engineering and risk management. There is a continuing high demand for people with specialist knowledge in these areas. This is partly a result of the new legal requirements to assess and control industrial risks to people and the environment, and partly because of the need to create high integrity engineering systems in many industries – for example, in the nuclear, defence, transport, aerospace, manufacturing and process industries.
