Health, Safety, Society
The Faculty of Health, Safety, Society offers two Bachelor's degree programmes, Applied Health Sciences and Security & Safety Engineering, and a new Master's degree programme in Security & Safety Engineering.
The Applied Health Sciences Bachelor's degree programme incorporates elements from various areas of medicine and health care, health psychology, social change and technology and health economics. As a result, broad-ranging career options are open to graduates. These include positions in the corporate health sector, in healthcare institutions and networks, both in a management or advisory capacity, and in the area of assisted ambient living, either in consultancy or research and development.
The Security & Safety Engineering Bachelor's and Master's programmes are engineering courses which offer a broad foundation in technology and the natural sciences. This can later be applied in a constructive and meaningful way to existing regulations and norms. Graduates will have career openings in most sectors of society as their know-how is required wherever people and organisations must be protected and better security systems devised. Possible future employers include companies, authorities, management consultancies and humanitarian organisations.
A consecutive Master's degree in Security & Safety Engineering was offered for the first time in the summer semester of 2013. The master's programme is open to graduates of the BA Security & Safety Engineering programme and to those with similar qualifications and a background in engineering or natural sciences.
