Reach for positions that meet today’s needs
Emerging needs …
Today, society is faced with two objectives which seem to be contradictory:
innovation which implies taking risks whilst
guaranteeing safety for all by controlling these risks.
This Advanced Master’s / Mastère Spécialisé (R) in « Safety Engineering & Management » provides the required skills to take up the challenge.
This vital control of technological risks involves all sectors: transportation (air, rail, road…), energy (nuclear plants, oil and gas platforms, refineries, dams, fuel cells…), production (pharmaceutical, agribusiness, manufacturing…), construction, waste disposal, etc.
… create new positions
Where are these activities located in the organization?
Jobs are available in Research and Development departments, in Industrial Safety departments as well as on industrial sites (nuclear plants, manufacturing plants, etc.). Companies frequently use specialized consultancy firms which provide risk analysis skills and accident prevention implementation methods. Authorities and audit offices also employ numerous experts ensuring regulation compliance.
What kind of positions need filling?
Process Safety Engineers, Safety Engineers, Reliability Availability Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) Engineers, Quality Safety and Environment Engineers, Risk Analysts in a safety consultancy, Inspectors in regulatory organizations, Risk Analysts in certification authorities or safety agencies, Risk Engineers for insurance companies.
These positions require close coordination with top management and can lead to faster career progression.
Which industrial sectors are concerned?
The jobs are in various sectors: transport (aviation, train, automobile, etc.), energy (oil and gas, nuclear, biogas, solar, etc.), production, medical implants, etc.
Bernard, graduated in 2010, Project Manager RAM/LCC in railways sector, Switzerland:
I am responsible for the definition and improvement of the Reliability, Availability and Maintainability processes of railways systems in compliance with EN 50126 standard. I'm called upon: - to estimate life cycle costs as well as train reliability, availability and maintainability for international calls for tender, - to support marketing/sales managers during negotiations with clients and suppliers, - to support RAM (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability) and LCC (Life Cycle Costs) engineers during project development. In addition to German, technical English is mandatory in replying to international calls for tender. For me, the « Safety Engineering & Management – Risk Engineering » course has proved invaluable on a daily basis.
Marie, graduated in 2011, Project Manager, France:
I acquired a truly industrial outlook thanks to the speakers who came from a wide variety of industrial sectors. This was an advantage when taking up my first position, and continues to be to this day. Risk management is a cross functional activity which pervades all areas. All projects require risk identification, risk prioritization and response strategy development. The training gave me the methodology required for these activities.
Mohamed, graduated in 2012, Process Safety Engineer, Morocco:
I work in the field of process safety and more precisely in the design of safe systems. When designing projects, I use many aspects learnt during the training on daily basis, including hazard and risk analysis. My job at an American international company led me to work with teams around the world (India, Europe, Middle East, USA, etc.).
Francisco, graduated in 2015, Plant Director, Brazil:
For the past 18 years I’ve worked as an engineer in various engineering fields. Nowadays, I'm a production manager responsible for a chemical plant in my country. I was given the opportunity to study at INSA Toulouse and by sharing experience and knowledge with teachers and other international students. I believe I’m much more confident and better prepared to perform my tasks. INSA strongly contributed to my professional education. The knowledge I acquired about occupational and process safety is applied to many aspects of my job. I definitely believe the International Master's offered by INSA also provided a number of intangible benefits which have helped me to become a better professional.
