Abstract
As the risks generated by industry and other organisations in society change, requirements as to how these risks are to be managed must change correspondingly. This means that new methods and techniques of risk analysis and management must be developed. The need for effective research and education in this area is accentuated by the rapid pace of organisational and technological change leading to increasing risks and increased vulnerability in production, transport and infrastructure. To meet the present and future demands of risk management, Lund University is starting a two-year engineering programme leading to a Master of Science in Risk Management and Safety Engineering. This paper presents the main structure of the programme,... (More)
As the risks generated by industry and other organisations in society change, requirements as to how these risks are to be managed must change correspondingly. This means that new methods and techniques of risk analysis and management must be developed. The need for effective research and education in this area is accentuated by the rapid pace of organisational and technological change leading to increasing risks and increased vulnerability in production, transport and infrastructure. To meet the present and future demands of risk management, Lund University is starting a two-year engineering programme leading to a Master of Science in Risk Management and Safety Engineering. This paper presents the main structure of the programme, including goal definition and short descriptions of key courses. The programme will focus on risks associated with safety, health and the environment (SHE), but also provide a general understanding of other major risks concerning companies, e.g. economic, political and organisational risks.
