The aim of this course is to give students insight about certification and about what it means to certify/self-assess safety- critical systems with focus on software system and to create a safety case, including a multi-concern perspective when needed and reuse opportunities, when appropriate.

About this course

Module 1 - Introduction to safety certification

This module is expected to:

  1. give an introduction to certification of safety-critical systems;
  2. transfer knowledge and skills on process vs product/ component vs system/ single system vs family of systems certification/qualification. It will also explain the relation between the following concepts: safety-critical systems, safety culture, development processes according to supplier and manufacturer perspective, certification,” the safety case”. Challenges concerning reuse of certification artifacts and its systematization will be highlighted via reuse scenarios.

Module 2: Standards, certification, and compliance

This module is expected to:

  1. give an overview of standards used as a baseline for certification;
  2. transfer knowledge and skills on various standards (focus on 1 standard e.g., ISO 26262) and their role in the certification process;
  3. state of the art overview on compliance management. The usage of some selected and open-source tools enabling provision of compliance-related artifacts will be illustrated, if appropriate.

Module-3: Modelling methods

This module is expected to:

  1. give an overview of modelling methods needed for the provision and reuse of certification artifacts;
  2. transfer knowledge and skills on various modelling methods for the provision of certification artifacts (process as well as product related) of safety-critical systems. The usage of some selected and open-source tools enabling provision and reuse of certification artifacts will be illustrated.

Learning outcomes

The students should after the course be able to:

  • explain fundamental concepts related to safety certification
  • create process-related compliance management artifacts
  • apply modelling methods stemming from state-of-the-art safety standards for developing reusable certification artifacts for safety-critical (software) systems

Entry requirements

  • 120 credits where at least 22,5 credits are in computer science and 7,5 credits in software engineering or equivalent.
  • In case of at least 18 months of documented work experience in software development an exemption is made from 7,5 credits software engineering.
  • In addition English course A/English course 6 is required.

You can also apply for the course and get your eligibility evaluated based on knowledge acquired in other ways, such as work experience, other studies etc.

Application information

After submitting your electronic application, the next step is to submit documentation to demonstrate your eligibility for the course you have applied for. In order to document your eligibility, you must provide your high school diploma and university transcript and proof of your English language proficiency.

Entry requirements

To meet the entry requirements for this course you need to have previous academic qualifications (university studies). You will find the specific entry requirements above.

No academic qualifications?

If you do not have the formal academic qualifications needed for a specific course, you can apply for the course and get your eligibility evaluated based on knowledge acquired in other ways, such as work experience, other studies etc. This is also known as a validation of prior learning.

Recognition of prior learning means the mapping out and assessment of an individual's competence and qualifications, regardless how, where or when they were acquired – in the formal education system or in some other way in Sweden or abroad, just recently or a long time ago.

If you think your knowledge and competences will qualify you for this course, you will need to upload th following with your application:

  • CV with description of your educational and professional background. Your CV must describe your knowledge and competences in relation to the entry requirements.
  • If you refer to work experience, you need to upload an Employers certificate.

If we need more information, we will contact you.

Prompt

The courses are part of the Prompt project where MDH offers courses at master's level. The courses are given online without physical meetings and are flexible in time and space so that they can be combined with professional life.
