Students will learn about the complex set of procedures and activities that, when brought together, results in a secure and efficient transport system. Students will also cover case studies of how interruptions to that system, such Pan Am flight 108, 9/11, the Brussels Airport attack or even the Sydney aircraft plot of July 2017 can and will have far reaching effects on public confidence and their expectations, government oversight, delays and costs to industry, and the potential for loss of live and suffering.
