Safety and Reliability Engineering for Oil and Gas

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.
