Application procedureYou apply via OSIRIS Student
Registration using OSIRISYes
After the course, the student is able to:
  • Give an in-depth description of a specific topic in the area of product safety and standardisation
  • Independently analyse a safety-related problem for complex products or systems
  • Understand European safety regulations and choose the applicable European or international standards
  • Use both goal-based and regulation-based approaches for achieving optimal results for safety
  • Apply risk management through the entire product lifecycle in order to realise a safe product or system
  • Design for safety by exploring alternatives and choosing the best solution to the problem
  • Formulate the basis of a safety report in order to prove that the system is complying with the regulations for achieving the CE certificate

The content of this course is case specific and tailor-made to a certain problem, product, or system. The content, size and/or assessment will be established individually and can be different per project. Therefore, the student and the supervisor need to agree on the subject and outcome on beforehand. The course is not scheduled in the time tables of the programme, and it can be done in any quartile.
The approach includes defining the scope of the problem, formulating research questions, followed by review of literatures and regulations, possible expert interviews, design and risk management across the full product life cycle. The student is expected to deliver an end-product demonstrating that a reasonable level of safety has been achieved.
