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.

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).

Who is it for?

This Masters course is aimed at IT professionals with approximately five years’ experience and is intended to provide them with the skills that they need to progress to a management role in information security and risk. The course will appeal to companies and professionals that need to develop or improve their capability in managing IT-related security, in order to enter markets with higher demands of dependability and security, comply with new regulations, or re-qualify for new roles.

Objectives

Concerns about cyber security and information risk have led to a growing market for technical specialists, but there is also a need for more senior professionals with an awareness of both the technical and the business issues who can bridge the gap between IT security and business risk.

On this Management of Information Security and Risk MSc programme you will learn about both the technical and the business issues that can bridge the gap between IT security and business risk.

Understand how to communicate these risks to both the technical staff and the executive business team (CEO, CIO, CFO and COO) in a language they share. Focus on human-machine interaction and decision making within today's increasingly complex Political-Economical-Socio-Technical (PEST) systems.

Find out about latest industry and government standards, legislation and best practice from leading technical experts and network with your peers to compare and contrast best practices from different industries.

Teaching and learning

The modules are taught by academics at the Centre for Software Reliability, within the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering, and also by visiting lecturers from industry. We also have invited speakers from academia and industry in most modules. Teaching takes place via seminars, lectures, group work and tutorials. The assessment is through coursework only – this consists of written work (individual and group), presentations and peer review.

The modules will be delivered in block mode, with students taking two modules per term. Each module consists of two blocks as follows:
-Thursday evening: 5pm - 9pm
-Friday: 9am-5pm
-Saturday: 9am-5pm

In summary, assuming attendance at the Thursday evening sessions can be done without having to take any time off from work, the students are expected to take eight Fridays off from work in a calendar year (though some employers may allow their employees to take these times off as study leave), and they will need to also attend classes for a further eight Saturdays (i.e. two Fridays and two Saturdays per module). Timetables are for guidance only and are subject to change.

Modules

The course covers the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in senior roles in information security and risk.

The course supports the extra breadth of knowledge required by people with professional experience to help them progress towards target roles in management or consulting on security, assurance and risk.

MSc Maintenance Management provides suitably qualified or experienced engineers of all disciplines with, modern cost effective maintenance management techniques for the efficient operation of all types of sophisticated, complex equipment.

Graduates of this programme can expect to find work in the areas of maintenance engineering/management, asset management, condition monitoring and reliability and safety engineering.

Description

Maintenance management has grown and developed into a significant major strategic issue for ensuring effective operation of plant and engineering systems in order to meet business objectives. The programme equips engineering graduates from a variety of disciplines with the knowledge and skills to allow them to become effective maintenance managers in a wide range of industries.

Maintenance plays a major part in ensuring the reliability of systems, planning availability of assets, health and safety, environment and product quality standards, customer service and other important areas. If these issues are not addressed, the survival of many organisations is at risk.

Historically, maintenance has been associated with the cost of labour and spare parts. With the advent of modern technology, maintenance has now evolved from a non-issue to a more strategic concern in most organisations. However, other factors such as reliability and availability, downtime and product quality can be key factors when measuring maintenance effectiveness.

Why Choose This Programme?

Today’s modern and efficient companies require top level maintenance strategies to match their investment. This impacts many industries particularly the advanced manufacturing technologies, transport industry, food production and the oil and gas industry.

This has resulted in a considerable gap between current maintenance skill set and the required skills and expertise needed to maximise the potential benefits from the use of technologies.

Assessment

The taught modules are either assessed by coursework only or a combination of coursework and examination. In the latter case the final mark is determined by weighted average of the two elements. The MSc project is assessed by project reports, practical operation and an electronic presentation.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme can expect to find work in the areas of maintenance engineering/management, asset management, condition monitoring and reliability and safety engineering.

Recent graduates have gone on to work for employers including Royal Mail, British Petroleum, British Energy, Scottish Power, First Scotrail, Siemens plc, Sellafield, Babcock International Group, Ciba Speciality Chemicals, Allied Bakeries, Alcan and Albion Automotive amongst others.

Our aim is to produce the next generation of leaders in earthquake engineering and natural disaster risk management who want to make an impact on the design of the built environment, the mitigation of seismic loss and the protection of human life. This specialist MSc combines the training of earthquake, structural and geotechnical engineering with design, assessment and management of infrastructure.

This discipline demands world-class facilities and at Bristol you will benefit from studying in the UK’s flagship centre for earthquake engineering. Here, you will have access to the state-of-the-art BLADE/EQUALS laboratory, including one of the most advanced earthquake shaking tables in Europe.

Throughout the programme you will work together with expert staff and international partners, exposing you to real-world challenges engineers face. Industry links are integral to the programme and our graduates are highly sought after by major UK and international employers.

One of the many highlights of the year is a field trip to an earthquake affected area in south-east Europe. You will have the opportunity to visit structures designed with innovative methods to resist earthquake forces or inspect the damage of a recent aftermath by using modern tools for non-destructive material testing and remote imaging.

Programme structure

Subject areas are aligned with two main strands relevant to structural/geotechnical earthquake engineering and disaster risk reduction. A strong set of core units (structural dynamics, earthquake engineering, reliability for engineers, soil-structure interaction and engineering seismology) is followed by 10-credit specialist units, depending on the strand chosen.

Students following the structural/geotechnical earthquake engineering strand will take units relevant to the analysis and design to Eurocode 8, laboratory testing of structures and soils, foundation engineering and soil dynamics. Students who choose to pursue the disaster risk management strand will focus on engineering for international development, disaster risk reduction, hazards and infrastructure and environmental modelling.

Cross references are carefully designed among the units of the two strands to make sure that all graduates obtain a uniform level of background knowledge and appropriate specialisation.

You are also required, as part of your course, to attend a field trip to an earthquake affected region, typically in a Mediterranean country. You may visit recently damaged areas and/or major engineering projects designed to resist earthquake forces. A series of seminars will also give you the opportunity to learn, as part of a distinct unit, the most recent advances in earthquake engineering innovation from distinguished invited experts.

Having successfully completed these units, you will prepare a 60-credit MSc thesis during the summer term, to be submitted at the end of the academic year.
