Course summary

The development and application of emerging technologies within the often contradictory constraints of safety, economy and the law is addressed within this course. If you are aiming for a senior role in safety engineering for oil and gas industry, this is the course for you. You’ll gain a thorough grasp of the fundamentals of safety engineering; practical experience in the use of state-of-the-art techniques for the study of safety engineering systems, together with an understanding of the necessary scientific, engineering and technological principles. You will get the chance to work with oil and gas engineering companies, all with the aim of boosting your employability when you graduate. It is possible to take the Industrial Experience Module after the completion of Year 2 (Year 3 if Foundation Entry route is taken) and such work placements provide valuable experience to both UK/EU and overseas students alike. All students are able to apply for international trip funding, including to our partner institutions – International College of Engineering and Management in Oman and City University of Hong Kong. Skills gained will equip graduates for a career as a senior safety specialist in a number of high hazard industries including oil and gas facilities, product safety engineering, process safety and chemical plants but the course is also relevant to occupations including regulators, insurance assessors and others. Because this course is supported by an established research base and continues to demonstrate a strong, well co-ordinated industrial link, the course content is highly relevant and current –which means our graduates are extremely desirable.A number of our graduates continue with us on research degrees (MPhil/PhD) studies within the Centre in Fire and Hazards in areas of fire and explosion safety engineering, fire modelling, computational fluid dynamics and others.
