MSc Railway Systems Safety and Risk

Course Description

Safety is a deeply held value in the railway industry around the globe, but assuring safe rail transport is challenging. Railways are large, complex systems often operating across national boundaries with differing regulatory requirements.

The Institute of Railway Research (IRR) has been established at the University of Huddersfield to conduct research and develop training to support the rail industry around the world. In particular, the IRR has brought together experienced professionals who have wide experience of safety and risk in the rail industry, and the underlying scientific methods.

The course is a joint effort of the University of Huddersfield and internationally recognized rail safety experts which ensures added value for you and the industry as a whole. The content knowledge is delivered in a clear programme for teaching academic skills that are relevant for prospective railway safety experts. Guest-speakers may vary from year to year.

Using this experience, we have developed a Master's course designed that provides you with the toolbox to develop into inspirational safety experts and leaders for the railway industry. The content and structure of the course allows you to undertake the course full-time or on a part-time basis, whilst still working.
