MSc Process Safety and Loss Prevention (CPET04)
The process industries handle and process a range of hazardous materials which can give rise to fires, explosions and toxic releases. Such events can result in loss of life, damage to the environment and threaten the very survival of a business. It is vital that companies understand and manage the risk of such accidents.
Process safety deals with how to identify, prevent, control and mitigate the effects of major accidents. Loss Prevention addresses the broader area of minimising all accidental losses (including for example by improving plant reliability and availability). This course provides you with the knowledge, skills and tools to pursue a career in process safety and loss prevention. The course is delivered by process safety practitioners with extensive current industry experience in their areas of specialisation.
The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering has brought together leading experts from industry, regulators, consultancies and the University of Sheffield to run the courses. The course has been offered for over 25 years and more than one thousand students have graduated. Graduates from the course are much sought-after by major companies in the oil & gas, nuclear, chemical and pharmaceuticals sectors.
The course is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers and is available as a full-time or part-time Masters course, as a Postgraduate Diploma, or as short courses for industry
