LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject will be delivered through a combination of lectures and hands-on workshops. Students will also complete three individual assignments and a pair-based project, which will reinforce the material covered in lectures.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
A book of notes will be made available at the University of Melbourne bookshop at the start of the semester. In addition, handouts of seminal research papers and book chapters about major topics will be distributed to students.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
The methods and principles in this subject are central to many safety-, mission-, and life-critical systems deployed today, such as transport control systems, automated manufacturing, and healthcare devices. Topics covered were chosen to reflect those methods and principles currently used in high-integrity systems engineering, and were informed by several industry experts from domains such as railway signalling and air-traffic management. Case studies used as part of the learning are real examples of critical systems from industry in which failure to operate dependably has resulted in serious injury, death, or severe damage.
Two lectures will be presented from industry-based lecturers who will describe the methods and principles used for analysis of safety-critical systems.
