Heriot-Watt University: Safety, Risk and Reliability Engineering
|Institution||Heriot-Watt University View institution profile|
|Department||Civil and Structural Engineering|
Risk has become a key concept in modern society. Growing concern about the environment and a number of disasters have served to focus attention on the hazards and risks involved in a wide range of activities from offshore oil production to rail and air transport; from the design of football stadia to the operation of chemical plants and environmental protection.
Today there is a wide range of techniques available to assess risk and reliability, both in relation to safety and in the wider sense. These techniques now underpin new legislation on safety and have relevance over a broad spectrum of activities, including environmental and other systems, where risk and reliability are key concerns.
The MSc/PG Diploma course in Safety, Risk and Reliability Engineering is designed to give a thorough understanding of these techniques and experience of their application to a variety of real-world problems. It aims to provide students with an understanding of safety, risk and reliability engineering in both a qualitative and quantitative manner, and to develop the skills to apply this understanding. The course will also introduce students to recent developments in analytical techniques, e.g. computer modelling of risk, reliability and safety problems.
Delivered only by Online Learning this course is ideal for those in employment or with other commitments, providing flexible study options that fit around work or family. Students will have a maximum of two years from registering for each taught course until they have to complete the assessment (students can choose to sit their exam in one of over 400 exam centres around the world).
Students receive comprehensive materials for each course through an online Virtual Learning Environment.
