Software safety

Individual course

The course explores the fundamentals of safety systems engineering and the connection to advance methodologies to design complex technological systems. It focuses on teaching new approaches, frameworks and theories to analyse, design, deploy and manage engineering systems with focus on safety.

This course introduces new techniques for assisting the determination of requirements in software design and development. It also presents and applies new tools for hazard and risk analysis and for designing safety-guided processes with applications in software and system logic design.

After completing the course the student should understand

  • principles of designing, modelling and verification of safety-critical systems,
  • the principles of safety analysis and risk assessment,
  • main issues in ensuring safety of software-intensive safety-critical systems.
