Security and Safety Management – Safety Management and Engineering
Towards a SAFER Future
New professions will continue to emerge in both the public and private sectors (public administration, security organisations, businesses and civil society) locally, nationally and globally. The new professions in security, safety and risk management require innovative in-depth knowledge and skills that are based on interdisciplinary approaches and methodologies. Organisations and enterprises need highly qualified professionals with a thorough understanding of security and safety management, safety engineering, risk management, governance and leadership.
The Masters Degree Programme in Security and Safety Management (SAFER) responds to this demand by educating experts who specialise in either Safety Management and Engineering or Security Governance. Depending on their major, students graduate with the degree of Master of Science in Technology, MSc (Tech), or with a Masters Degree in Administrative Sciences, MSc (Admin). The two majors have their own admission and degree requirements. Apart from the majors, the programme mainly consists of joint courses. Students enrolled in SAFER can also choose courses across any of the faculties at Tampere University.
