Safety Engineering

Earning a master (MA) is an educational achievement that can take about two years to earn, after earning a bachelor’s degree. While earning a master takes plenty of time and hard work, it can pay off in the form of better job prospects, higher career earnings, and improved skills and knowledge that can only be obtained through an advanced degree program.

What is an MA in Safety Engineering? Classes in this master’s program cover topics such as system and occupational safety, environmental risk assessment, hazard analysis, statistics, and industrial hygiene. These classes help students learn how to develop appropriate safety protocols, how to design safe products, and how to implement prevention measures in order to avoid hazards. Some master’s programs allow for elective courses, which students can take to further hone their specialized knowledge and skills within the safety engineering field.

Graduates with a master’s degree in safety engineering tend to be extremely motivated individuals who are also excellent critical thinkers and very detail oriented, with exceptional problem-solving skills. These skills and abilities help graduates to be indispensible employees in the workplace.

The cost to earn a master can differ for each individual and depend on a variety of factors, such as the length of time it takes to earn a degree as well as the location of the school. For this and other reasons, students are encouraged to research prospective schools so that they are fully informed about the potential cost of their degree.

Individuals who earn their MA in Safety Engineering may choose to work as occupational health and safety specialists or technicians, engineering managers, and health and safety engineers, for either public or private engineering firms. Other individuals may also choose to work for the government, overseeing and managing the safety and reliability of engineering projects, or they may choose to operate their own safety engineering firm.

While earning a master’s degree can take years to complete, there’s no better time to get started than right now. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Advanced Master in Safety Management System in Aviation - MS SMS-A

ENAC
Campus Full time 1 year October 2017 France Toulouse

The ENAC Advanced Master Safety Management System in Aviation is designed for current or future SMS managers in charge of the development, deployment, or improvement of SMS in organisations that must comply with ICAO safety requirements. [+]

Masters in Safety Engineering. Content and Objectives ENAC Advanced Master SMS in Aviation is designed to train SMS managers who will lead the structural and administrative changes within their organisation, moving it from reactive thinking to predictive thinking. In an effort to reach the next level of aviation safety, international civil aviation authorities (ICAO, EASA, FAA) as well as IATA require organisations and institutions alike to implement a Safety Management System (SMS) for the management of safety risks. The corresponding fields include: aircrafts design and production, air operations, aeronautical maintenance, air traffic services, airport and training organisations. SMS represents the next step in the evolution of safety processes in the aviation industry worldwide, at the organisational level. SMS complements the requirements and regulations in human or technical safety already implemented during the past decades. SMS is the formal systemic and pro-active approach to anticipating and managing safety risk, as well as to initiating and achieving the necessary transformation of organisational structures, accountabilities, policies, procedures, standard practices and regulations. SMS is a structured process that requires organisations to apprehend possible safety issues with the same level of priority that other core business topics are managed, and to continuously analyze them, in conjunction with state institutions within their State Safety Program (SSP), as well as with their industry counterparts. The objective is to provide future SMS managers with the fundamentals of how to systematically monitor and improve aviation safety using the Safety Management System described in ANNEX 19 of the ICAO Convention....

Master of Natural Hazards and Risks in Structural Engineering

 

The Natural Hazards and Risks in Structural Engineering (NHRE) master’s degree programme has a strong international orientation. It trains students to apply themselves to demanding engineering tasks with regard to specific external influences, such as earthquakes. We teach students how to use modern equipment to assess the dangers and damage potential of natural phenomena, we show them how to create models and simulations, and we prepare them for conducting projects and- risk analyses of their own.In this way, the programme provides students with key qualifications for engineering positions which require innovative, enterprising solutions for dealing with a wide variety of natural dangers, like earthquakes, floods and storms.The occurrence of an increasing number of natural hazards all over the world and their various effects on individuals, societies and modern economies is one of the major challenges for future decades. The master course in "Natural Hazards and Risks in Structural Engineering" faces this challenge by providing indispensable tools for taking into account those phenomena in the different design processes in civil engineering. Thereby, the master course aims at combining practical structural engineering with state-of-the-art concepts regarding computational mechanics, dynamics and probability theory/stochastic analysis. Consequently, the master course provides key qualifications for innovative work in the field of earthquake, flood and wind engineering and offers an international setting in which students will achieve both technical success and personal advancement.Main areas covered by the master course in "Natural Hazards and Risks in Structural...

Advanced Master in Aviation Safety Aircraft Airworthiness The main objective of air transport is to ensure the safety of the passengers, crew and people on the ground which is mainly done through aircraft airworthiness activities.

Such activities must be considered as a coherent process running from the design of the aircraft to the monitoring of its technical condition in airline service. This Mastère Spécialisé covers both the technical aspects of certification, i.e the compliance with applicable requirements and the legal implications and obligations. This course has been designed to give future managers a broad understanding of the issues and priorities which, as far as aeronautical construction is concerned, have an international dimension....

Master in Urban Water Cycle

University of Algarve
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Portugal Faro

This master programme aims to train professionals with skills to develop technological solutions based on scientific knowledge, to ensure water needs for modern societies. In our days, the sustainable water management for various uses is a major challenge, especially in a socioeconomic context of high complexity and in a scenario of climate change. [+]

This master programme aims to train professionals with skills to develop technological solutions based on scientific knowledge, to ensure water needs for modern societies. In our days, the sustainable water management for various uses is a major challenge, especially in a socioeconomic context of high complexity and in a scenario of climate change. Thus, coastal cities and in particular cities in the Mediterranean region, have lack of professionals trained to develop integrated solutions that increase the resilience to water scarcity. Career Opportunities: Public companies of the water sector; Research institutes; Public administration; Analysis laboratories; Consultancy firms; International organizations with competences in the water domain (e.g., UNESCO, UNICEF, FAO).
