About this course

Fire Safety influences every aspect of the built environment from the design of industrial facilities and skyscrapers to the materials chosen to create cars and aeroplanes. This program combines Civil Engineering with additional study in the specialist field of Fire Safety Engineering and will equip Civil Engineering students with the necessary fundamental skills and knowledge to develop a comprehensive Fire Safety Strategy for a broad range of projects. Areas of study will include the fundamental processes governing ignition, fire growth, and the response of structures to fire. The course program will also develop the design principles required for applying fire safety engineering in the built environment.

Employment opportunities:

Engineers with specialist knowledge in this area are highly sought after by leading consultancies around the world to develop and design complex infrastructures using demonstrated specialised knowledge in fire safety across a broad range of areas including

  • fire dynamics
  • fire protection systems
  • egress and fire safety legislation

The BE(Hons)/ME in Civil and Fire Safety Engineering will provide a pathway to accreditation as a Chartered Engineer in Civil and/or Fire Safety Engineering.
