<span style="font-size: 11pt;"><span><span style="font-family: Calibri,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9.0pt;"><span><span>This course is from the University of York and counts towards an MSc in Safety Critical Systems Engineering; the MSc is recognised by the British Computer Society, the Chartered Institute of IT and the Institution of Engineering and Technology.</span></span></span></span></span></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 11pt;"><span><span style="font-family: Calibri,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9.0pt;"><span><span>This course aims to cover the analysis and assessment phase of the system safety engineering life-cycle for a proposed product or service. It does so by considering the inputs to this phase, the qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques that can be employed within this phase and the outputs from this phase in terms of evidence into the safety case regime. It also considers the changing assessment requirements as more integrated and complex systems are developed.</span></span></span></span></span></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 11pt;"><span><span
