Course content

The School of Engineering at the University of Aberdeen has focused on safety-related teaching and research for over 25 years and is today established as one of the key centres for safety engineering teaching and research in the UK.

The MSc Process Safety is developed with the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and industry to produce qualified Process Safety Engineers. On this programme, you will be exposed to the major issues and challenges facing industry today, including operational safety, risk assessment and management and develop a professional approach to managing these accordingly.

This programme is distinctive because it is designed for students with a chemical engineering background, or those with a background in Petroleum or Mechanical Engineering, with good chemical/chemistry knowledge.

A major component of the MSc Process Safety programme is understanding and managing risk. You will be introduced to the tools and processes used to identify, assess and manage risk, taking such issues as process operations and human factors into account.

Aberdeen is known as the Energy Capital of Europe. The city and surrounding area is a major international centre of research and innovation in every aspect of the offshore oil and gas industry.

The University’s location at the heart of the oil and gas industry means that our degree programmes benefit from direct industry involvement, including industry advisory panels, guest lectures, field trips, site visits, networking and careers events, and industry supported student projects.
