Course Summary

This innovative direct entry MEng (Hons) degree combines the professional engineering discipline of Safety Engineering with Emergency Planning and Disaster Management. Increasing concerns over climate change and energy security, the resultant new technologies, and the growing threat of natural and man-made disasters mean that today’s engineers are facing a new set of challenges. This degree will equip engineers with specialist skills to design structures and systems to withstand potential disasters in the natural and the built environment. The nature of disasters may include those caused by extreme weather such as flooding, forest fires or earthquakes, or industrial incidents including chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear accidents, or acts of terrorism. There is nothing that can be done to completely prevent disasters from occurring. However, it is possible to devise migratory steps against disaster with intelligent and professional emergency management practices.

This timely degree equips graduates with a unique and valuable skillset enabling them to work as safety engineers, both locally and globally, with a wider knowledge of emergency planning and disaster management. One year industrial placement is an integral component of the degree.

Graduates will be employable across a wide range of industries as safety is an integral component in almost every sector. Graduates will have a solid background in fundamental engineering subjects with the career opportunities that those skills bring. Roles include positions in engineering consultancies, regulatory bodies, aid and advisory agencies, roles in local, regional and national government departments and agencies, NGOs, utility providers, and the civil service.
