Centre for
Risk and Reliability Engineering
  • Print

In 2010 The University of Nottingham joined forces with The Lloyd’s Register Foundation to launch an exciting new initiative in Risk and Reliability Engineering based in the Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre (NTEC).  The Centre of Excellence is headed by Professor John Andrews.

The centre is dedicated to conducting research into developing modelling techniques to predict ways of improving the design, maintenance and operation of engineering systems in order to reduce the frequency and consequences of failure. It is also committed to providing education in risk and reliability methods

Resilience Engineering Research Group

Resilience Engineeering Research Group is based at the Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre

Key aims and expertise

The centre works with partners covering a wide variety of industries: 

  • Transport - overground / underground railways, aerospace, highways
  • Energy - fuel cells, nuclear, oil, and gas
