Presentation and learning objectives

Second cycle degree

The program trains Safety engineers that, together with a robust basic knowledge, gain skills in the risk analysis sector of civil buildings and process industry systems, quality management and control, safety of complex systems and occupational-related issues.
The integration of these aspects is achieved by means of both a complementarity of covered topics in individual courses and a multidisciplinary approach dealing with complex problems.
Graduated Safety engineers will acquire solid professional problem-solving skills.
