MSc in Aviation Safety

The Masters in Aviation Safety and Aviation Security MASAS program is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together.

The areas of Aviation Safety or Aviation Security are closely related and the MSc Aviation Security/MSc Aviation Safety programs contain five modules that are core to both and deal with common issues such as risk management, human factors, strategy, operations, and planning.

Fundamentally, however, safety relates to measures that are taken against the threat of an accident, while security refers to protection from threats motivated by hostility or malice. Each program, therefore, contains three specialist modules that enable students to consider in depth the different areas of regulations and compliance, design, use of technologies and systems that are associated with these different perspectives. Further specialization is achieved through the Project which is required to focus on a topic that is aligned with the specialist area.... [-]
