The Railway Risk and Safety Management programmes have been jointly developed by the Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education (BCRRE) at the University of Birmingham and the High Integrity Systems Engineering (HISE) Group at the University of York.
The programme team aims to create a deep and robust understanding of approaches to manage safety and risk in transport systems and projects. The partners recognise that each transport sector and mode has its own specific features but seek to ensure that a common approach is taken to the generic issues involved in ensuring dependable operations.
The full-time programme consists of eight classroom taught modules and two research-oriented modules. Part-time students follow the same syllabus as full-time students but complete the taught modules in a sequence that suits their work-commitments.
The full-time study periods are:
Master of Science Degree: 12 months
Postgraduate Diploma: 8 months
Postgraduate Certificate: 4 months
Continuing professional development options: 1 week modules
