The Structural and Fire Safety Engineering programme at The University of Edinburgh covers the fundamentals of fire science, including laboratory classes, fire safety engineering and relevant structural engineering topics, such as finite element methods.
You will gain knowledge of the critical issues in structural fire safety engineering, and an understanding of relevant fire and structural behaviours.
You will become familiar with performance-based approaches to design and have an awareness of the capabilities – and limitations – of relevant advanced modelling methods for structures and fire.
Our Building Research Establishment (BRE) Centre for Fire Safety Engineering hosts bespoke equipment to support groundbreaking research and teaching, with combined thermal and mechanical loading and use of the latest image analysis techniques.
Internationally, there is great demand for graduates in this field, with expertise in structural fire safety engineering particularly sought after as performance-based design expands. Most of our previous graduates are in relevant employment, with the majority working in fire teams at engineering consultancies, while others are pursuing further study.
This programme is fully accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM)
