Systems Safety Engineering aims to provide a well rounded understanding of system safety. It introduces the rationale for safety management systems and then studies the interplay of regulatory frameworks, hazard identification techniques, engineering risk assessments and certification practices in the context of an appropriate domain, such as aerospace. Students are expected to both understand the theoretical linkages between regulation and safety and the practical implementation of engineering management systems to provide the desired level of system safety.
