Fire Safety Engineering

This programme is offered by the Fire Safety Engineering Research and Technology Centre (FireSERT), which is internationally recognised for research in fire dynamics, structural fire engineering, and human behaviour in fire. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of fire science and the technological principles and techniques relevant to the discipline of fire safety engineering.

You will benefit from the expertise and resources of FireSERT including our world-leading teaching staff and state-of-the-art experimental facilities. Learning and teaching is research-led and you will work closely with practitioners in developing fire safety strategies for real buildings.

There is strong demand for fire safety engineers. Graduates are employed in roles across the UK and worldwide e.g. as regulators, fire safety officers in the public and private sector, researchers in research and testing facilities, and fire brigade officers (UK and Europe). Alternatively, you may proceed to PhD studies in fire science and engineering related topics.
