This postgraduate degree emphasises Fire Safety Engineering in the context of buildings and infrastructure and is designed for those who will eventually hold senior positions within the fire-related professions.
This involves skills and knowledge crossing all areas of learning including fire chemistry, physics of heat transfer, biology and toxicity, structures, law and legislation, environmental impact, risk management and design.
Why study with us
The Fire Safety Engineering programme from University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is fully accredited by two professional institutions (EI and IFE) that play an active part in ensuring the course is developed to meet professional needs.
Graduates have become leaders in a range of backgrounds from fire services to civil engineering to safety management.
This course is supported by an established research base (Centre for Research in Fire and Hazards Science) which builds on the training and educational programmes offered by the Institution of Fire Engineers.
Recent graduates have become leaders in a range of professions, from fire services to civil engineering to safety management.
The range of employment opportunities for MSc Fire Safety Engineering graduates is very wide. The design and safety of buildings for industrial and commercial use is becoming more complex due to the ever-increasing awareness of health and safety needs in the working environment.
Therefore an ability to solve the problems of fire prevention and control is desirable. The course is intended to provide both skills and knowledge relevant to the management of private and public sector services.
