Learning outcomes
In this course of study, students acquire knowledge of risk (principles, connections, etc.), quality and reliability engineering and risk management. Students get skills for using mathematical tools in quantifying and risk analyzing issues. After the course, they will be able to choose and evaluate various risk and reliability parameters, and to choose the appropriate risk management tools.
