Analysis and control of risk



This course focuses on methods of identifying and analysing the risks associated with technical systems, such as FMEA, fault-tree analysis and human reliability assessment. Students also choose one of two additional short modules, focusing on either descriptive decision theory or information security. In the short descriptive decision theory module, students examine the psychology of human decision-making, including heuristics & biases, ecological rationality, prospect theory, and nudging. In the short information security module, students examine cryptographic security and privacy technology and policy.
