Fire engineers specialise in the application of science and engineering principles to protect people and their environment from destructive fire.
The Master of Engineering in Fire Engineering is open to graduates from relevant branches of engineering, and covers all aspects of fire safety in buildings and other structures, human safety, and risk assessment.
Some courses are offered in blocks and online learning software allows for flexible programmes of study. Students also complete a thesis or project.
- See current research being conducted by research groups within the Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering.
To study a Fire Engineering programme at UC, students must normally have completed one of the following:
