Subject

Safety engineering

The development and application of emerging technologies within the often contradictory constraints of safety, economy and the law is addressed within this course. If you are aiming for a senior role in safety engineering for oil and gas industry, this is the course for you. You’ll gain a thorough grasp of the fundamentals of safety engineering; practical experience in the use of state-of-the-art techniques for the study of safety engineering systems, together with an understanding of the necessary scientific, engineering and technological principles. You will get the chance to work with oil and gas engineering companies, all with the aim of boosting your employability when you graduate.

It is possible to take the Industrial Experience Module after the completion of Year 2 (Year 3 if Foundation Entry route is taken) and such work placements provide valuable experience to both UK/EU and overseas students alike.

All students are able to apply for international trip funding, including to our partner institutions – International College of Engineering and Management in Oman and City University of Hong Kong.

Skills gained will equip graduates for a career as a senior safety specialist in a number of high hazard industries including oil and gas facilities, product safety engineering, process safety and chemical plants but the course is also relevant to occupations including regulators, insurance assessors and others. Because this course is supported by an established research base and continues to demonstrate a strong, well co-ordinated industrial link, the course content is highly relevant and current –which means our graduates are extremely desirable.

A number of our graduates continue with us on research degrees (MPhil/PhD) studies within the Centre in Fire and Hazards in areas of fire and explosion safety engineering, fire modelling, computational fluid dynamics and others.

Modules

Year 1: Introduction to Oil and Gas Engineering, Introduction to Combustion and Fire, Safety and Fire Law, Energy Transfer and Thermodynamics, Engineering Design Practice, Engineering Analysis 1, Skills for Fire Studies

Year 2: Oil and Gas Engineering Operations, Reliability Engineering in Complex Systems, Accidents and Catastrophes, Safety, Health and Environmental Management, Project Management, Computational Engineering, Engineering Analysis 2

Year 3: Oil and Gas Production Engineering, Safety Case Development and Management, Fire Protection Engineering, Probabilistic Risk Analysis, Engineering Design Project, Engineering Dissertation

Year 4: Geotechnical Systems: Oil and Gas Engineering Applications, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Energy and the Environment, Advanced Engineering Design Project, Engineering Dissertation

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
