(MSc in) Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety
Can we accept that a small flaw can cause a car's brakes to fail? Can we deter those dangers to both people and the environment that are inherent in the complex products and systems surrounding us?
About the programme
The objective of this Master's programme is to provide knowledge and skills to enable students in the development and operation of safe, reliable and easily maintainable systems. You will learn how products and systems can be used safely, and how technical faults can be avoided. Furthermore, you will learn how to plan and cost-effectively perform maintenance. The language of instruction is English.
This programme is unique in Scandinavia and builds on long experience from industry projects, teaching and research. The study is suited for people who like to identify and solve problems, have analytical skills, can work structured and systematically, and enjoy both theoretical and practical problems.
The study environment
NTNU and SINTEF together constitute the largest academic environment in Europe within safety, reliability and maintenance, and has established the ROSS Gemini Centre. Read more about the study environment.
