About

The ongoing developments in safety and reliability remains a primary focus for the oil and gas industry.  Safety and Reliability Engineering for Oil and Gas, ISS or MSc programme is offered at University of Aberdeen.

Overview

Greater effort is now being put into assessing the safety and reliability of complex engineering systems, and of ensuring that existing facilities can continue to be operated safely and economically.

Safety and Reliability Engineering for Oil and Gas, ISS or MSc programme at University of Aberdeen provides 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, 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.

The MSc Safety and Reliability Engineering for Oil and Gas provides an integrated approach to safety and reliability issues across most of the traditional branches of engineering, and will allow you to specialise in offshore engineering, technical safety, reliability, legislations and regulations or human factors. You will be taught by staff from the School of Engineering, Institute of Mathematics, School of Psychology and the Department of Environmental and Occupational Medicine. In addition to the above, a number of lectures are given by industrially-based practising safety and reliability specialists.

Careers

Safety will always remain a vital part of the industry. Those with the right level of engineering skills will always be in demand.
