University of Aberdeen offers long standing advanced learning and research of safety and reliability engineering alongside the oil and gas industry. The city hosts the European hub of the energy industry located in the city. The online programme is enhanced by tutorials, technical reports, presentations, group projects, and industry lectures.

The energy industry has historically provided immense rewards and immense challenges in terms of infrastructure development in very challenging environments. Over time there have been many learning points as a result of process which did not address the challenge sufficiently resulting in new standards of safety, assessing risk and managing the challenges presented in mineral extraction. The industry has come a long way since its start in Aberdeen in the 1970s. University of Aberdeen has acquired this knowledge and research to work with industry and train the next Safety and Reliability Engineers to continuously improve safety. This programme is highly regarded and world renowned due to its links to the oil and gas industry.

The programme is ideal if you are from an engineering, physics or mathematics background but it is also relevant to you if you studied stress analysis and thermodynamics with experience from the industry. The added value of this programme is that you can apply the discipline to other industries such as nuclear, defence, transport, aerospace, manufacturing and process industries, making you more employable and allowing wider scope for career options at graduation. You learn online and part time to help you fit learning around other activities and learn anywhere in the world where you can connect to the programme and learning facilities online.
