||This report describes a joint project conducted by the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) and the University of Liverpool Engineering Department to integrate risk concepts into their undergraduate engineering course. The project defined risk education learning outcomes that can be integrated into an undergraduate engineering curriculum and implementing them by merging new teaching materials (involving real accident case studies) into core engineering modules. The success of the project was evaluated in terms of student's understanding of risk, at different points during their course, and interactions of the project team with academic staff. A questionnaire to ascertain students' understanding of risk was developed to support both development of materials and their evaluation.
