The 16 brain areas of a Professional Safety Engineer …

Modern safety technology is very complex and extremely versatile. It usually takes years to build up the necessary knowledge and experience to be able to make responsible decisions. The CSE Academy was founded by the team of engineers around Prof. Dr. Jürgen Schmidt and Prof. Dr. Jens Denecke to significantly shorten the path to safety engineering.

The aim is not only to transfer comprehensive knowledge with the greatest possible proximity to applications, but also to convey the Safety Mindset, the special mentality that characterizes a safety expert.
