Introduction

Safety remains one of the most important areas of focus for the global oil and gas industry. This programme delivers the safey engineers of the future.

This programme provides education and training for graduate engineers in the general area of safety engineering, reliability engineering, and loss prevention. Safety engineering is not a subject which is adequately covered in most undergraduate degrees, so this MSc programme brings together those topics relating to the safety and reliability of engineering products and systems, including the legislative framework, 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 offshore, nuclear, transport, aerospace and process industries. The needs are global.

This programme provides an integrated approach to safety and reliability issues across most of the traditional branches of engineering, and allows students to specialise in offshore engineering, technical safety, reliability, legislations and regulations or human factors.
