The program covers technical aspects of reliability engineering, focusing on reliability and availability of systems. It is mathematically based and designed primarily for graduate engineers.


Graduates of this program will be able to refresh some aspects of their academic training. or embark on a new aspect of training in maintenance management or reliability engineering.


This course comprises four core units.


Students complete:

  • MRE5101 Basic quantitative skills for reliability engineering
  • MRE5102 Understanding reliability
  • MRE5103 Advanced reliabilityy
  • MRE5104 Reliability applications (project unit)
