We enhance the professional knowledge and skills of students in fire and safety engineering, and develop their learning attitudes, study skills, and intellectual and imaginative powers.
Fire and Safety Engineering programme at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University concentrates on fundamental analysis and the development of fire and safety science and engineering concepts. It also advances quality teaching in the new topic of engineering performance-based fire codes. In safety engineering, the focus is on improving the safety of buildings. Accident prevention, hazard assessment, risk analysis, safety management and auditing, and safety in construction sites are also covered. The programme caters not only for graduates and professionals in building services engineering, but also for those in the broader industry sectors of construction, architecture, surveying and applied sciences.
We offer in-depth knowledge of fire and safety engineering. Students take subjects that are related to general building services engineering practices and come to appreciate how fire and safety designs are integrated into buildings. This programme also helps students to develop research techniques and critical thinking skills.
