Aims and contents

The Master of Science in Safety Engineering for Transport, Logistics and Production aims at providing to student a high and advanced level of training.

The main goal is to enable M.Sc. graduates to operate in qualified positions with reference to the various activities related to safety in transport systems, logistics, and production, but also of the territory where they are located, with particular reference to:

  • the risk assessment of local systems, and in particular the planning, design and management of both safety (protection against accidental events) and security (protection than intentional events);
  • the evaluation in terms of cost/benefits of different design alternatives for risk mitigation in transport, logistics, and production systems;
  • the planning and management of the mobility of people and goods, through the knowledge of the fundamental elements of transport and logistic systems, as well as the criteria to define the physical characteristics of isolated infrastructures a network of infrastructures, with particular reference to the relevant functions and interdependencies;
  • the design and safe management of transport, logistic, and production systems, with reference to either the systems as a whole, and to the relevant single components, such as infrastructures, facilities, vehicles, equipment;
  • the development and use of advanced methods to manage and optimize the performance and safety of road, rail, air and sea infrastructure and transport services, as well as their interactions in an intermodal framework, by means of the design and implementation of monitoring, regulation, and control systems via the most advanced technologies related to their specific disciplines;
  • the analysis and evaluation of the externalities of transport and logistic systems, with explicit reference to the particular safety aspect and issues characterizing each phase of the mobility of people and goods, even within the production plants connected, and their interaction with surrounding environment.
