Programme overview


The MSc in Safety Engineering for Transport, Logistics, and Production provides a high level of advanced training, to enable graduated students to operate in the areas related to safety engineering in

  • transportation systems
  • logistics
  • industrial production

so as to realize the acquired ability to conceive, plan, design and manage complex, innovative systems and processes, with particular attention to safety aspects. 

Graduates in Civil, Industrial and Information Engineering can enroll directly.

Learning by doing

The course combines traditional lessons with:

  • lab activities and development of projects
  • intensive seminars and courses
  • (elective) internships in industry or in a research labs
  • (elective) study periods abroad

All classes are taught in English.

Career perspectives

Job opportunities (as experienced by graduated in previous Academic Years)

  • research structures (universities, research centers, ...)
  • engineering companies and/or large professional firms operating in the field of design, implementation, security management with reference of the transport and territorial systems
  • public and private institutions that handle large lines infrastructure (railways, highways, ...)

The MSc in Safety Engineering for Transport, Logistics and Production aims at providing to student a high and advanced level of training, with particular reference to:

  • the risk assessment and management, and in particular the planning, design and management of both safety (protection against accidental events) and security (protection than intentional events)
  • 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 development and use of advanced methods to manage logistics and production systems with the aim of achieve the best quality, safety and and sustainability of these kind of these systems
  • the analysis and evaluation of the externalities of transport, logistic and production 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
