Program Overview

Safety and risk concerns are of paramount importance in a wide variety of complex engineering activities such as offshore operations, petroleum refining, and mineral processing. Today, there is a wide range of techniques available to assess safety, risk and reliability, both in relation to design as well as day-to-day operations.

The use of these techniques is now an integral part of safety-related regulations of hazardous facilities and operations. Memorial University's MASc. and graduate diploma programs in safety and risk engineering are designed to give a thorough understanding of these techniques and their application to a variety of real-world problems.

The discipline is the only one of its kind in Canada.

  • It aims to provide students with a good grounding in safety and risk engineering in both a qualitative and quantitative manner, and to develop the skills to apply this understanding.
  • The programs will also introduce students to recent developments in analytical techniques, such as computer modelling of risk, reliability and safety problems, dynamic risk analysis, etc.
  • The programs are intended for, though not limited to, working professionals to advance their understanding and skill related to safety and risk engineering.
  • The knowledge acquired through the programs will enhance the skills of engineers in the process industries, oil and gas service and operating companies, mineral processing, engineering consultants and government services.
  • The programs build around the knowledge and understanding of accident modelling, process and offshore safety issues.
  • Engineering and human factors associated with the safety and risk assessment will also be covered.
