About

The Safety and Reliability Engineering programme of the University of Aberdeen is taught at a world-class centre for research and teaching in safety and reliability engineering. One of the objectives of the School of Engineering is to continually develop and deliver world-class teaching and research in safety and reliability engineering aimed at educating the safety engineers of the future.

Overview

At a Glance

The Safety and Reliability Engineering programme of the University of Aberdeen provide advanced education and training for graduate engineers in the area of safety engineering, reliability engineering, and loss prevention. There is a continuing demand for individuals with specialist knowledge in these areas across many industry sectors including oil and gas, chemicals, transport and construction, partly a result of the 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.

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.

Communication and self-learning skills are enhanced through a series of tutorials, coursework, technical reports and presentations. Coursework involving group projects are designed to develop creativity, leadership and team-building skills and to encourage initiative and personal responsibility in the implementation of the projects. You will be taught by staff from the School of Engineering. In addition, a number of lectures are given by industrially-based practising safety and reliability specialists.
