Introduction & Aims

This course explores the basic concepts and processes of management. Students will examine the

fundamental roles and processes of planning, organising, leading and controlling that comprise the

manager’s role. It focuses on the entire organisation from both short- and long- term perspective for

strategic vision, setting objectives, crafting a strategy, and implementing it. It also covers areas such

as leadership, decision making, and motivation among others.

Learning Outcomes

This course ensures that the student understand how;

a) Managers manage business in the dynamic global environment

b) Organisations develop and maintain competitive advantage

c) Business decisions are made using tools and techniques to remain competitive

d) Managers use problem-solving strategies and critical thinking skills in real lifesituations

**OBJECTIVE: **This course's primary objective is to give you a concrete idea of numerical methods and how they
relate to engineering and scientific problem-solving.

**OUTCOME: **At the end of the course, it
is expected that students will understand the concept behind numerical methods and
be able to apply them in finding solutions to problems relating to engineering
and science. In particular, the students will become proficient in the following:

- Understanding the theoretical and practical aspects of the use of numerical methods;
- Implementing numerical methods for a variety of multidisciplinary applications;
- Establishing the limitations, advantages, and disadvantages of numerical methods.

**PREREQUISITES:
**It is
assumed that the student has some background in Algebra, Calculus and Computing.

**GRADING
CRITERIA AND EVALUATION PROCEDURES: **The grade for the course will be based on class
attendance, group homework, quizzes/ class test and a final end-of-term exam.

Course Title: Risk Management & Hazard Control Systems

Coordinating Department: Environmental & Safety Engineering Department

Semester: Semester 1, 2022/2023 Academic Year

Level: Undergraduate

Number of Credits: 3

Contact Hours: 4 hrs/week

* Course Description:* As professional engineers our
graduates will in the future be responsible for critical aspects of engineering
practice, design and decision making; these include the implementation of sound
professional and ethical behaviour, responsibilities and liabilities for safe
management of operations and personnel; critical assessment of issues of
sustainability from project initiation to wider long term operations;
Environmental risk assessment including project environmental approvals. These
issues and the modern approaches to assessing risk will be explored in this
course.

* Assumed Background: *This course provides an introduction
to hazard identification, hazard control systems, risk management systems,
concepts and methodologies that are applicable to managing risk related to
operations within the mining and allied industries. The course requires no
specific prior knowledge regarding risk management, but the case
studies will utilise some technical knowledge of the extractive
industry acquired in earlier courses. The course will be run in short
course format – with the core learning material being presented across series
of regular and guest lectures.

*Course
Introduction*

As a graduate safety engineer, you will often be involved in risk identification, assessment, treatment and management processes associated with the design, operation and management of change. The aim of this course is to help participants understand, articulate and apply the elements of hazard control and risk management typically used within the extractive industry. In the extractive industry, risk pose multi-faceted challenges for practising engineers. It is not just a technical issue. It is fundamentally about people and their decision-making and behaviours. It is also about you, your colleagues, your bosses, other stakeholders, and society at large. What aspects of the operation do these people consider risky? How do they perceive the risk? How do they think it should be managed? What trade-offs are they willing to tolerate/accept? These multiple aspects of risk are reflected in the course.

The course covers the two major risk management mindsets – the loss reduction mindset and the systems thinking mindset. There are three key themes which under-pin the course:

- Sustainability and operational excellence come from effectively managing the range of risks that can impact a business (technical, human, societal, environmental, and financial)
- Managing risk is a core component of professional engineering practice.
- Quality risk management comes from a good understanding and application of risk management fundamentals.

Your competence will be demonstrated by performing risk management in moderately complex projects, and by applying the tools and techniques effectively.
