Forensic Engineering: Learning from failures certification course is taught by professors and lecturers from the Delft University of Technology. This course will introduce the concept of forensic engineering as a means to prevent future incidents of unwanted events by identifying the causes of similar past events and help students investigate the cause of events so that the knowledge can be applied to prevent any future mishaps.
The introductory course is for students interested in building a secure future by engineering and designing products that ensure the safety of people from accidents. With this course, students will understand the role of forensics in civil engineering and society at large through learning from prior engineering and design failures.
Upon completing the course, students will get an understanding of the failures and the investigative processes thereof to identify their causes. They will also learn to apply these lessons gained from investigative processes into previous failures and apply them to new designs and procedures.
- Course duration is 6 weeks for 6 modules
