Since the advent of the Health and Safety at Work Act the philosophy of managing work based hazards has changed from a reactive rule based protocol to one based on the assessment and management of risks. Read more
Since the advent of the Health and Safety at Work Act the philosophy of managing work based hazards has changed from a reactive rule based protocol to one based on the assessment and management of risks. More recently there has been the recognition of the need to go beyond simply avoiding unwanted outcomes and developing a wider dimension of organisational resilience.

The systematic assessment and management of workplace hazards demand the development of existing knowledge and skills. Good employers now recognise that managing health and safety has not only legal and moral imperatives, but also makes good business sense.

Loughborough University has been providing training in occupational health and safety management for more than 35 years. On successful completion, participants will be able to make better informed decisions concerning the management of occupational health and safety.

See the website http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/sbe/executive-education/programmes/accredited/ohsm/

About the Programme

The programme is aimed at professional health and safety advisors and managerial, engineering and scientific staff with responsibilities for occupational health and safety. It gives them the academic knowledge and skills to evaluate operational requirements against health and safety policies which have to respond to a changing regulatory, social and economic climate.

The courses are designed and delivered for participants working within the discipline who can attend the University for a series of short courses ranging from one to four days. Such attendance promotes a much more fulfilling learning experience through direct interaction with acknowledged experts and other students and avoids the isolation of courses delivered entirely by distance learning.

The objectives of the programme are to provide:
- A comprehensive understanding of current occupational health and safety management issues;
- The academic basis for Chartered Status of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) (for holders of the Diploma/MSc); and
- Flexible training for working professionals who do not have the opportunity for full-time study.

Professional Development

‌Holders of the Diploma (and MSc) satisfy the requirements for graduate membership of IOSH and membership of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM), providing professional recognition for your studies.

Adding value to your employer

The course is designed to be challenging, career enhancing and geared towards real life management, developing skills you can apply to the benefit of your organisation, and assessing these through work-based assignments which provide a direct return on investment. You will also benefit from excellent opportunities to network with professionals from a range of sectors, with the following organisations represented on the programme in recent years:

This MRes in Computer Modelling in Engineering programme consists of two streams: students may choose to specialise in either structures or fluids. The taught modules provide a good grounding in computer modelling and in the finite element method, in particular.

Key Features of MRes in Computer Modelling in Engineering

Computer simulation is now an established discipline that has an important role to play in engineering, science and in newly emerging areas of interdisciplinary research.

Using mathematical modelling as the basis, computational methods provide procedures which, with the aid of the computer, allow complex problems to be solved. The techniques play an ever-increasing role in industry and there is further emphasis to apply the methodology to other important areas such as medicine and the life sciences.

The Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering, within which this course is run, has excellent computing facilities, including a state-of-the-art multi-processor super computer with virtual reality facilities and high-speed networking.

This Computer Modelling in Engineering course is suitable for those who are interested in gaining a solid understanding of computer modelling, specialising in either structures or fluids, and taking the skills gained through this course to develop their career in industry or research.

If you would like to qualify as a Chartered Engineer, this course is accredited with providing the additional educational components for the further learning needed to qualify as a Chartered Engineer, as set out by UK and European engineering professional institutions.

Student Quotes

“I was attracted to the MRes course at Swansea as the subject matter was just what I was looking for.

I previously worked as a Cardiovascular Research Assistant at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne. My employer, the Head of the Cardiology Department, encouraged me to develop skills in modelling as this has a lot of potential to help answer some current questions and controversies in the field. I was looking for a Master’s level course that could provide me with computational modelling skills that I could apply to blood flow problems, particularly those arising from congenital heart disease.

The College of Engineering at Swansea is certainly a good choice. In the computational modelling area, it is one of the leading centres in the world (they wrote the textbook, literally). A lot of people I knew in Swansea initially came to study for a couple of years, but then ended up never leaving. I can see how that could happen.”

Jonathan Mynard, MRes Computer Modelling in Engineering, then PhD at the University of Melbourne, currently post-doctoral fellow at the Biomedical Simulation Laboratory, University of Toronto, Canada

Careers

Employment in a wide range of industries, which require the skills developed during the Computer Modelling in Engineering course, from aerospace to the medical sector.
