Master

Safety and Systems Engineering

part-time

Technical systems are becoming increasingly complex - from individual vehicles to large production plants. Industry is increasing its investment in the safety of such systems, to protect humans and the environment and to avoid economic losses. This is where you will make your contribution as a qualified safety expert. Because the Master degree program deals with Safety and Systems Engineering, Risk Management, Project and Process Management and Law and Business Administration. This continuing education is in high demand in industry and has been developed by FH Campus Wien in cooperation with the TÜV AUSTRIA Academy.

    Before the studies

    The safety of technical systems goes hand in hand with the safety of man and the environment. This is your basic principle, creating your holistic concept of safety. Your technical background is based on your education and professional activities. On the process and engineering level, system safety and risk management are your be all and end all, directing your thinking and actions. You have an analytical talent which enables you to remain a step ahead of potential dangers and risk. You prefer to be ahead of the pack in terms of tapping into the growing technical field of safety and of implementation of sustainable processes.

    The admission procedure consists of an interview with the admission committee. The recording interviews are done via Zoom.

    • Goal
      The aim is to ensure places are offered to those persons who complete the multi-level admission procedure with the best results. The tests are designed to assess the skills needed for your chosen profession.
    • Criteria
      The criteria for acceptance are based solely on performance. The geographical origin of the applicant has no influence on the admission decision. The admission requirements must be met in all cases. The admission committee (which comprises, among others, the head of the academic section and representatives of the teaching staff) awards places to the applicants who score highest in the tests. The process as a whole and all test and assessment results from the admission procedure are documented in a transparent and verifiable manner.

    During the studies

    FH Campus Wien and the TÜV AUSTRIA Academy have since 2010 been successfully cooperating in the area of practice-oriented training and further education in the field of functional and system safety. With the newly developed Safety and Systems Engineering Master degree program, the two institutions are closing a gap in the educational landscape. FH Campus Wien provides the expertise in research and teaching, whilst the TÜV Austria Academy contributes its extensive know-how on machine and plant engineering. The result is a unique post-graduate education. We offer you the opportunity of pioneering without venturing into uncharted waters. Because the need for safety has long been recognized especially in the Anglo-American realm and it is on the increase in our own environment. Our cooperations with well-known companies such as Siemens AG, ZKW Elektronik GmbH, Tele Haase Steuergeräte GmbH, Thyssen Krupp Presta Hungary Kft. oder die TeLo GmbH, to name but a few, are proof of the successful transfer of know-how to industry. You will as a student be integrated into cross-disciplinary and international "safety network" and will use these valuable contacts for the exchange of experience. Practical relevance is also guaranteed through our Campus Lecture evenings which are open to all and offer contributions by prominent experts.The part-time organizational form will assist you in coordinating your job and your studies.

    The Vienna Institute for Safety & Systems Engineering (VISSE) at FH Campus Wien is a pioneer in the field of Safety among central European universities. The VISSE operates as a knowledge platform which, via the degree program, brings together university research, teaching and business practice. The VISSE experts also teach in the new Safety and Systems Engineering Master degree program. To the student this offers a unique opportunity of participating in innovative research and development projects.

    The objective of the Project Safety Competence Center Vienna project, for instance, was to develop an integrative safety process which would integrate the requisite norms and standards into a process model. Using the ISaPro® Integrative Safety Process and the ISaPro® Shell Model analysis method based on ISaPro®, hazards may be systematically identified and risks may be limited. Additionally systematic errors will be avoided, which could have a negative impact in particular in the software field

    This increases safety and facilitates its verification. You will study this in your degree program and may seamlessly apply your findings in your professional practice.

    As an additional benefit under this degree program, we offer you the opportunity of obtaining respected TÜV AUSTRIA CERT GMBH personal certificates. On completing the relevant courses and passing a certification test, you may obtain the "Certified Safety Specialist", "Certified Safety Manager", "Certified Quality Officer" and "Certified Risk Manager" certificates. Certification is directly via the TÜV AUSTRIA Academy. The certification fees are not included in the tuition fees and will be charged separately by the TÜV AUSTRIA Academy.

    In the Master degree program, you will be dealing with

    • the Principles of Safety & Systems Engineering
    • Safety & Risk management
    • Business and management competency
    • Project and process management
    • Safety Advanced

    You will write your Master thesis in the fourth semester.

    A discipline-spanning way of thinking, where especially the interaction between individual disciplines is emphasized, is central to the education. The "Principles of Safety & Systems Engineering" module forms the basis of the Master degree program. The highly interlinked "Project and Process management", "Safety and Risk management" and "Business and management competency" modules are building on this. The "Safety Advanced" module links theoretical knowledge to practice as illustrated in the "Praxis transfer" module and also links to the Master thesis required under the "Scientific competence" module.

    Legal Aspects in the Field of Safety VO

    1 SWS   2 ECTS

    Lecture contents

    The aim of my course is to give an overview of product liability and product safety rules. The students learn
    the terms and the legal delimitation of the different legal bases such as "prod-uct liability", "compensation",
    "warranty" and "guarantee".
    Based on Austrian law, students learn the practical significance of product liability on the basis of individual
    judgements of the European Court of Justice (ECJ), the Supreme Court of Justice of Austria (OGH) and
    selected national courts of other European countries.
    Due to the practical relevance of this course, the students will be shown legal peculiarities and "stumbling
    blocks" and will be provided with instructional aids for coping with product liability crises.
    Due to the technical background of the students of the Master's programme "Safety and Sys-tems
    Engineering", the following legal terms, just to name a few, will be discussed
    o What is the "state of science and technology"?
    o What is the "state of the art" and what influence do standards and technical rules actually have in product
    liability?
    o What does the CE marking mean?
    In view of the rapid technological developments, the following topics will be discussed with the students:
    o Product liability and IoT (Internet of Things): Is software a product according to prod-uct liability and is the
    software developer also liable?
    o Digitisation: Security of networked products through software updates?
    o Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT)
    o Robotics: What legal framework does the European Union (EU) plan to establish for (more) safety and
    liability?
