Postgraduate / professional education

Industry and government need staff that is qualified in risk assessment and control and other aspects of safety and health. Our most important contribution to professional education is the postgraduate programme in Management of Safety, Health & Environment (MoSHE).

The section also contributes to training courses for specialists in certain working conditions specialists, managers, inspectors and designers. More specialised courses on specific aspects of safety are run at intervals, either in companies or open to all comers.

We also contribute to the MOOC 'Risk in Modern Society'.

PhD program and graduate school

If you are interested in doing a PhD at the Section Safety & Security Science you can either apply for a vacancy for a PhD student at the section, or you can write your own research proposal in cooperation with one of the researchers of the section. In the latter case, you need to arrange external funding and your proposal needs to be approved by two professors of the overarching Department of Values, Technology & Innovation. The first step is always finding a supervisor at the section who would be interested to supervise your PhD.
