Description

Risk management is an essential activity that needs to be undertaken in all engineering and complex systems. It is a key part of an organisation's safety management system that provides stakeholders with the process, tools and techniques to ensure risks are managed to acceptable levels. This subject provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the risk management process, and its application to engineering systems. Students learn to apply the risk assessment techniques to examples and case-studies set in the engineering context. The knowledge and tools learned can also be applied outside the engineering systems, to support risk management relating to workplace health, safety and environment, business, and project management.
