The Engineering Institute of Technology is pleased to bring you the Master of Engineering (Safety, Risk and Reliability Automation)** program.

IN THIS ACCREDITED AND PRESTIGIOUS PROGRAM YOU WILL GAIN:

  • Skills and know-how in the latest and developing technologies in safety, risk and reliability
  • Practical guidance and feedback from industrial automation experts from around the world
  • Live knowledge from the extensive experience of expert instructors, rather than from just theoretical information gained from books and college
  • Credibility and respect as the local safety, risk and reliability expert in your firm

Introduction

A powerful force is driving industrial growth and change, and it’s only getting stronger. That force? Uncertainty. Society increasingly demands more efficient transport, more power production, safer energy exploration and processing, less waste, smarter products and of course, all at lower costs. All these demands spotlight uncertainty, and how we need to manage uncertainty through engineering, science and technology. Modern engineers face an intriguing set of challenges when tackling uncertainty and they have developed some of the smartest methods, tools, techniques and approaches for understanding system safety, risk and reliability.

The Master of Engineering (Safety, Risk and Reliability) is the ideal gateway to boost your capacity to tackle these real world increasingly complex issues. In the 21st century, industry will routinely deal with novel hazardous processing technologies, complex energy grid load-balancing from renewables, driverless cars, artificial vision to augment control and feedback in sub-sea exploration – and the infinitesimal scale of nanotechnologies in bionic engineering. Currently, people are at the heart of many hazardous work environments, exposed to the consequences of uncontrolled events; but soon, artificial intelligence will afford more human tasks to be automated (and present a host of newer risks, in exchange for the retired ones). This progress has to be examined in systematic terms – terms that integrate our understandings of technical fallibility, human error and political decision-making.

This program has been carefully designed to accomplish three key goals. First, a set of fundamental concepts is described in useful, manageable ways that encourage rapid and integrated knowledge-acquisition. Second, that knowledge is applied in creative and imaginative ways to afford practical, career-oriented advantages. Third, the learning that results from the integration of knowledge and application is emboldened by activities and projects, culminating in a project thesis that is the capstone of the program. This carefully designed learning journey will develop factual understanding and also exercise participant’s creativity and design-thinking capabilities. Employers are hungry for these skills, and program graduates can expect a significant advantage when interacting with employers, clients, consultants and fellow engineering peers.

Units include:

  • Safety Systems and Risk Management is an introduction to the life-cycle approach to analysis, design and operational management. It defines the scope and reach of systems safety, and defines terminology and constructs vital for engineering practice.
  • Incident and Accident Investigation encourages a wider, deeper perspective on disasters, and equips participants with a range of investigation techniques that seek the multiple contributing factors behind unplanned events. In doing so, it frames an approach to learning from failures – a powerful approach to design and development activities.
  • Health, Safety and Environment Management critically examines legislative and society forces in regulating industrial practice. The scientific view of risk is contrasted with human values of dread, and situates the engineer at the crux of communication opportunities.
  • Human Factors Engineering is essentially the craft of balancing technology with people, and it is underpinned by a theoretical framework of human capabilities and limitations and specific tools to enhance engineering analysis.
  • Safety Systems is a functionally unified approach to systematic analysis, with logic, deconstruction and probabilistic approaches to measurement and assurance.
  • Process Safety examines the technical approaches to recognising and valuing hazards, and the quantitative manner in which they can be controlled through process design.
  • The Safety Cycle examines threshold concepts to describe acceptability, tolerability and cost-benefit.
  • Data Analysis and Statistics provides the underpinning for all risk computations.
  • Asset Integrity and Management addresses the life-cycle activities underpinning reliability through inspections, testing and maintenance.
  • Fire science and land use are examined in Fire, Explosions and Facility Planning.
  • Reliability Engineering focuses on modelling – especially systems dynamics, configurations and aspects such as redundancy and design trade-offs.
  • Safer Plant and Systems is a topic recently formalized through a robust and repeatable approach to protection types and structures.

Professional Development Series

In order to meet the exacting demands of the oil and gas, mining, manufacturing and downstream processing industries, modern plants are equipped with systems and devices which are needed to measure and regulate variables such as temperature, pressure, flow, humidity, liquid level, velocity and density. Industrial Automation provides the technology to control and monitor a process plant using such concepts as feedback, cascade, feedforward and advanced process control. Here at the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT), we have developed industry-focused programs in the form of vocational diplomas, advanced diplomas and graduate certificates, all the way up to Masters level in the higher education sector.

There is a critical shortage of automation, instrumentation and control engineers, technicians and technologists around the world now due to the retirement, restructuring and rapid growth in new technologies and industries. The respected International Society of Automation (ISA) organization estimated that at least 15,000 new automation engineers are needed annually in the USA alone.

In keeping with the philosophy of EIT, students in this school are exposed to the practical, up-to-the-minute knowledge and skills demanded by leading industries worldwide, with online instrumentation courses. EIT does not just cater to a generic student body, instead all of our online instrumentation courses are specific to industry. The programs cover a large range of topics and are suited to anyone needing an intensive and practical look at all facets of industrial automation, instrumentation and process control.

The short courses that form part of EIT's professional development series are designed to provide students with critical knowledge and practical tools that can be immediately applied to the workplace. They are ideal to up-skill and/or cross-skill in a particular area or technology and are not accredited programs.

Students in EIT's School of Industrial Automation, Instrumentation and Process Control study subjects which include: process control, instrumentation, control valves, process plant layout and piping design, tuning of process loops, SCADA, PLCs, advanced process control (APC), boiler control, hazardous areas, safety instrumentation (IEC 61511 and IEC 61508), HAZOPs, industrial data communications, networking, deviceNet and Fieldbus, industrial wireless, radio telemetry systems, shielding/EMC/EMI, and noise reduction.
