Safety & Security Engineering, due to its special nature, represents an interdisciplinary area of research and applications that brings together, in a systemic view, many disciplines of engineering, from the most traditional to the most advanced and novel.

Safety &Security Engineering is characterized by a totally new approach since it first analyzes the hazard context not only by means of traditional tools but also by means of risk analysis techniques and then manage the above mentioned context through technical solutions, installations, systems, human resources and procedures to prevent and face incidental events, natural and voluntary, that could damage people or goods.
