Can we accept that a small flaw can cause a car's brakes to fail? Can we deter those dangers to both people and the environment that are inherent in the complex products and systems surrounding us?
Product and system complexity is increasing. Many technical products and systems are combinations of software, electronics and mechanical components. Also, the interactions between technical systems and the economical/social systems of our global society are becoming tighter and more inter-dependent.
The objective of this Masters programme is to provide knowledge and skills to enable students in the development and operation of safe, reliable and easily maintainable systems. You will learn how products and systems can be used safely, and how technical faults can be avoided. Furthermore, you will learn how to plan and cost-effectively perform maintenance.
