Risk has become a key concept in modern society. Read more

Programme Background

Risk has become a key concept in modern society. Growing concern about the environment and a number of disasters have served to focus attention on the hazards and risks involved in a wide range of activities from offshore oil production to rail and air transport; from the design of football stadia to the operation of chemical plants and environmental protection. Today there is a wide range of techniques available to assess risk and reliability, both in relation to safety and in the wider sense. These techniques now underpin new legislation on safety and have relevance over a broad spectrum of activities, including environmental and other systems, where risk and reliability are key concerns.

The MSc/PG Diploma programme in Safety, Risk and Reliability Engineering is designed to give a thorough understanding of these techniques and experience of their application to a variety of real-world problems. It aims to provide students with an understanding of safety, risk and reliability engineering in both a qualitative and quantitative manner, and to develop the skills to apply this understanding. The programme will also introduce students to recent developments in analytical techniques, e.g. computer modelling of risk, reliability and safety problems.

Professional Recognition

This MSc degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng (Hons) undergraduate first degree. See http://www.jbm.org.ukfor further information.

The MSc and PgDip degrees have also been accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). Graduates are eligible to join IOSH as Graduate members and then undertake an initial professional development process that leads to Chartered membership. http://www.iosh.co.uk for further information.

Programme Content

The MSc/Postgraduate Diploma in Safety, Risk and Reliability Engineering is only available by attendance-free distance learning. The programme comprises eight courses. All courses have written examinations and some have compulsory coursework elements. MSc students are also required to complete an individual project (dissertation). This programme has a stronger engineering bias and you should only attempt this if you have done some University level mathematics or equivalent. Otherwise the Safety and Risk Management course might be more appropriate.

For the project component of the programme distance learners are likely to develop something based in their country of residence with advice and supervision from staff in the School. This may well include work with a local company or may involve independent study. Individual arrangements will be set up with each student.

For more detailed information on this programme please contact the Programme Leader before applying (see above).

Introduction

A powerful force is driving industrial growth and change, and it’s only getting stronger. That force? Uncertainty. Society increasingly demands more efficient transport, more power production, safer energy exploration and processing, less waste, smarter products and of course, all at lower costs. All these demands spotlight uncertainty, and how we need to manage uncertainty through engineering, science and technology. Modern engineers face an intriguing set of challenges when tackling uncertainty and they have developed some of the smartest methods, tools, techniques and approaches for understanding system safety, risk and reliability.

The Master of Engineering (Safety, Risk and Reliability) is the ideal gateway to boost your capacity to tackle these real world increasingly complex issues. In the 21st century, industry will routinely deal with novel hazardous processing technologies, complex energy grid load-balancing from renewables, driverless cars, artificial vision to augment control and feedback in sub-sea exploration – and the infinitesimal scale of nanotechnologies in bionic engineering. Currently, people are at the heart of many hazardous work environments, exposed to the consequences of uncontrolled events; but soon, artificial intelligence will afford more human tasks to be automated (and present a host of newer risks, in exchange for the retired ones). This progress has to be examined in systematic terms – terms that integrate our understandings of technical fallibility, human error and political decision-making.

This program has been carefully designed to accomplish three key goals. First, a set of fundamental concepts is described in useful, manageable ways that encourage rapid and integrated knowledge-acquisition. Second, that knowledge is applied in creative and imaginative ways to afford practical, career-oriented advantages. Third, the learning that results from the integration of knowledge and application is emboldened by activities and projects, culminating in a project thesis that is the capstone of the program. This carefully designed learning journey will develop factual understanding and also exercise participant’s creativity and design-thinking capabilities. Employers are hungry for these skills, and program graduates can expect a significant advantage when interacting with employers, clients, consultants and fellow engineering peers.

Entry Requirements

To gain entry into this program, applicants need one of the following:

a) a recognized 3-year bachelor degree in an engineering qualification in a congruent* field of practice with relevant work experience**.

b) a 4-year Bachelor of Engineering qualification (or equivalent), that is recognized under the Washington Accord or Engineers Australia, in a congruent*, or a different field of practice at the discretion of the Admissions Committee.

c) a 4-year Bachelor of Engineering qualification (or equivalent) that is not recognized under the Washington Accord, in a congruent* field of practice to this program.

AND

An appropriate level of English Language Proficiency equivalent to an English pass level in an Australian Senior Certificate of Education, or an IELTS score of 6.5 (with no individual band less than 6.0) or equivalent as outlined in the EIT Admissions Policy.

* Congruent field of practice means one of the following with adequate Safety, Risk and Reliability content (fields not listed below to be considered by the Dean and the Admissions committee on a case-by-case basis):

**Substantial industrial experience in a related field is preferred, with a minimum of two years’ relevant experience.

Program Structure

Students must complete 48 credit points comprised of 12 core subjects and one capstone thesis. The thesis is the equivalent of one full semester of work. There are no electives in this course. The program duration is two years full time, or equivalent. Subjects will be delivered over 4 terms per year. Students will take 2 subjects per term and be able to complete 8 units per year. There will be a short break between terms. Each term is 12 weeks long.

Live Webinars

During the program you will participate in weekly interactive sessions with the lecturers and other participants from around the world. Each unit's weekly live tutorial will last 60 to 90 minutes. We take student availability into consideration wherever possible before scheduling webinar times. All you need to participate is an adequate Internet connection, speakers and a microphone. The software package and setup details will be sent to you at the start of the program.

Program Fees

EIT provides distance education to students located almost anywhere in the world – it is one of the very few truly global training institutes. Course fees are paid in a currency that is determined by the student’s location. A full list of fees in a currency appropriate for every country would be complex to navigate and, with today’s exchange rate fluctuations, difficult to maintain. Instead we aim to give you a rapid response regarding fees that is customized to your individual circumstances.

We understand that cost is a major consideration before a student commences study. For a rapid reply to your query regarding courses fees and payment options, please query via the below button and we will respond within 2 business days.

Special features

Reliability Engineering & Asset Management offers a flexible approach to learning as follows:

Full-time in attendanceDirect Taught )

Students undertake eight units. Each taught unit lasts one week and is followed by time for coursework and revision for examinations. Students start work immediately on their project and the programme is completed in one year.

Part time in attendanceDirect Taught )

Students undertake eight units. Each taught unit lasts one week and is followed by time for coursework and revision for examinations. Students start work on their project in the final year and this option is completed in three years.

Part time by Distance Learning

Students undertake eight units, all in distance learning format, each of about three months duration. Teaching will begin with a short introduction allowing students to acclimatise to the Virtual Learning Environment, Blackboard 9. The programme is complete after three years. Students undertake their project in the final year. 

Teaching and learning

The coherent atmosphere in the classroom is to maintain high standards and quality and as such places are limited. Our teaching methods are similar to knowledge transfer concepts as well as case studies without involving much mathematical theories.

Teaching style

Direct Taught - Full and Part time

Each course unit runs for an intensive week-long period and tuition takes place at the University.

Distance Learning

For part-time Distance Learning students, the entire course is delivered via Blackboard, an online virtual learning environment. Two course units per semester are undertaken on-line accessing web-based teaching material which will include text, images, video and animation in parallel, over a three month period. Most importantly web-based teaching generates an interactive environment with real, active communication between students and staff and between groups of students throughout the programme. Distance Learning students will need to visit the University for a 2-day residential per semester for face-to-face discussion with their Unit leader .

Coursework and assessment

Each taught unit of the programme is followed by an assignment which is applied in the work place for part-time students or at the university for full-time students plus an examination either at the University or at higher education institute or British Council in the student's home country.

Assessment is by written examination and assignment. The assignment, which follows the taught element of the unit, accounts for 50% of the total marks, the examination 35% and an in-unit assignment the remaining 15%.

Examination period

Semester 1 - 2nd and 3rd week of January

Semester 2 - 2nd and 3rd week of May

Dissertation Project

The dissertation project is intended to address a real issue in Reliability Engineering and Asset Management and is studied in depth, relating problems in the field to theory, case studies and solution reported in the literature, and often creating innovative proposals and field trials. All students have access to laboratory resources where appropriate.

Course unit details

REAM is a modular programme which consists of eight units, some of which include field and lab work followed by a major project. The earlier units address the management of the maintenance process, including such topics as asset management and maintenance strategy; asset maintenance systems and condition monitoring. Later more specialised units deal with auditing, advanced vibration monitoring, reliability and risk. Units on the full time programme are direct taught, however, part time students can choose either direct taught or web-based distance learning.

All delivery modes cover the same syllabus and lead to the same qualification. View examples of programme structures of individual degree programmes; Full-time , Part-time and Distance Learning . Please see examples of past dissertation projects .
