The MSc in Aviation Safety programme from Emirates Aviation University is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together.


The MSc in Aviation Safety programme from Emirates Aviation University is one of very few degree programmes in the world to address those needs. The awards provide graduates with knowledge of management, safety and security issues in aviation, and the ability to establish or administer safety or security programs in business, industry, or government. 

Fundamentally, however, safety relates to measures that are taken against the threat of an accident, while security refers to protection from threats motivated by hostility or malice. Each programme therefore contains three specialist modules that enable students to consider in depth the different areas of regulations and compliance, design, use of technologies and systems that are associated with these different perspectives. Further specialisation is achieved through the Project which is required to focus on a topic that is aligned with the specialist area.

Career Prospects

The exponential growth of the aviation sector requires a parallel growth in appropriate specialized qualifications that provides employers with an element of confidence in the ever changing and complex business environment. The MASAS programme comes as an ideal opportunity for applicants seeking growth or new opportunities in the field.

A typical student may have a number of years' experience in his or her particular field of safety or security expertise (or may simply be seeking a career change towards those fields). The student may probably already be in a junior or middle management role (or seeking an upgrade). He or she may probably have an enthusiasm to implement safety or security management systems across departmental boundaries.
