Safety at work, refers to preventive enforcement of certain measures and regulations concerning the safety of human health on the workplace. On this study program, you will be able to learn the possible dangers to human health in certain areas, how to recognize them and to eliminate.

The goal of OSH (Occupational safety and health) is to create reliable working conditions for preventing workplace injuries, occupational diseases and accidents, i.e. reducing the possible harmful consequences if the danger cannot be completely removed.

In this study program the students are first introduced to the legal bases of safety at work that refer to the protection of the general rights of workers, protection of rights in the work process, and they acquire knowledge in the field of organization of safety at work and management protection at work. Students are also studying for harmful agents in the environment that affect human health, the mechanisms of their action, and a strategy for encountering their harmful effects.

Furthermore, the program predicts acquiring knowledge about the basic laws of thermodynamic processes in order to protect the working and environment, to acquire knowledge about the processes of development of technical systems as well as the technical systems for protection of the employee, the material goods and the safety of the working and the environment.

The studies last three years, and the study scope is 180 ECTS.

Within the three-year studies, the students have to take 24 courses. Each semester has 2 Required and 4 elective courses. Of the possible 4 elective courses, students choose only 2 – and this is chosen between the first and second elective courses, i.e. between the third and fourth, and so on. For example, only one item is selected – or no. 3 or no. 4 (unless otherwise specified).

In the below table Un. elective means a university elective course and the same rules apply to the selection of these courses as for standard electives.

Upon graduation, you will be awarded with a Bachelor of Safety Engineering degree.
