Course summary

This course will provide you with the educational background required to become a leader in the field of safety critical systems engineering, whether you are currently a practising - or aspiring - professional in this area.

Products and services are taking on more authority over activities that have the capability to pose a risk to human lives. System safety professionals address a web of interlinked contributing factors to assess the safety of these products or services.

This course will provide you with the opportunity to become a practitioner, or enhance your existing practice, in the core aspects of safety-critical systems engineering and to reflect on the implications of your work both for your current role and for society as a whole. Three strands of work will develop your skills: system safety thinking, skills as a safety engineer and professionalism.

The course will enable you to become better equipped to make a contribution to your organisation. We will provide you with an initial grounding and practical experience in the use of techniques for the development and assurance of the safety characteristics of systems or services that have safety implications. You will explore the principles behind these techniques so that you can make sound safety engineering judgments. You'll also have the opportunity to investigate the latest research.

The course employs the extensive research and industrial experience of the developers of the work packages you will address. It brings together safety professionals from many different domains (aerospace, military, automotive, railway, nuclear) to ensure your learning is as varied and as comprehensive as possible.

This course is also available as an MSc in Safety Critical Systems Engineering or a PGDip in Safety Critical Systems Engineering.

Accreditation

The courses may be used as part of a Continuing Professional Development programme for The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) or The Chartered Institute for IT (BCS) members.

Careers and skills

The vast majority of people who undertake this course are already working in industrial fields such as aeronautical engineering, marine engineering, naval and military fields, automotive applications, gas and electric services engineers. Undertaking this course will equip you to progress within these fields.
