You can already apply for our 2017 course start

The course begins with a learning laboratory in Lund, Sweden. The learning laboratory is mandatory for first-year master students. 

We are so looking forward to receive your application!

Our aim

Our aim is to get people from across safety-critical industries like healthcare, aviation, shipping, process control, military, railways and nuclear power together to critically reflect on and learn about human factors and system safety. Through a series of new Learning Laboratories and a full Master's of Science program, you too can participate in the exciting scientific renaissance and rapid development of complexity and systems thinking that will help you and your organization learn and grow.

If you would like to get in touch with any of our former or current master students, prior to deciding whether or not to submit an application, some of them are listed with their contact details following this link.
