Course summary

We have been a centre of excellence in the field of accident investigation for over 40 years. Designed specifically for safety professional, accident investigators, and those working in related fields, this course will provide you with an academically recognised, high standard qualification.

Who is it for?

The MSc in Safety and Accident Investigation allows you to receive an internationally recognised qualification in the field of accident investigation. The majority of students join this course with the intention of receiving a qualification that will allow them to further their career development in accident investigation or other safety related areas of the transport industry.

Why this course?

We have been a centre of excellence for aircraft accident investigation for over 40 years. In 2011, we were awarded a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our world-leading work in aviation safety through research and training in air accident investigation. We started our multi-modal accident investigation training in 2005, and have since then established our rail and marine accident investigation training capabilities.

An important aspect of this course is the use of hands-on workshops and simulations to develop the practical skills required as an investigator, including interviewing techniques, analysis techniques, and technical writing. For the MSc degree, this is complemented by sessions that enable you to conduct rigorous research and scientific analysis.

The course is specifically designed to meet the academic study aspirations of the international safety professional community. The highly practical nature of the course requires course attendance in the UK for the major parts of the programme. However, most of the research and module assessments can be completed remotely. Cranfield University offers a comprehensive range of library and IT services tuned to support distance learning, enabling international students to study while balancing work/life commitments. Wherever possible, the University will continue to evolve to maximise distance learning opportunities within its programmes. Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
