Graduate Certificate in Safety, Risk and Reliability Engineering
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 Graduate Certificate in Safety, Risk, and Reliability Engineering is the ideal gateway to boost your capacity to tackle these real-world, increasingly complex issues. Upon completion of this program, you will gain skills and knowledge in the latest and developing technologies in safety, risk, and reliability.
In the 21st century, the 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. Still, 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.
Who should attend?
- Hold a recognized bachelor degree (or above) in engineering or science in a congruent field of practice,
- Have completed the equivalent of first-year Bachelor level mathematics, or are able to demonstrate recognized relevant work experience.
- Have an appropriate level of English Language Proficiency at an English pass level in an Australian Senior Certificate of Education, or an IELTS score of 6.0 (with no individual band less than 6.0), or equivalent as outlined in the EIT Admissions Policy.
- Introduction to Safety Engineering and Risk Management
- Incident / Accident Investigations and Learning from Disasters
- Safety Systems – Tools and Methods
- Data Analysis and Statistics
Course delivery details
Our graduate certificates take six months to complete. We deliver our online graduate certificates on a part-time intensive basis. Part-time Students are expected to spend approximately 10-15 hours per week per unit learning the program material and completing assessments. This includes attending tutorials.
Graduates of this program will be able to identify, critically analyse and creatively solve intellectually complex, specialised professional engineering problems relevant to engineering, underpinned by critical analysis, root cause analysis, contributory factor analysis techniques, disaster identification, innovation, self-reflection, research, evaluation, synthesis, accountability, and sound engineering judgment of solutions relevant to the Professional engineering domain.
Graduates will also apply data analysis and statistics to interpret failure rates, appreciate their limitations, and apply them to relevant safety system models.
