About

The International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering (IMFSE) programme offered by The University of Edinburgh is a two-year educational programme in the Erasmus+ framework.

Overview

The International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering programme is jointly offered by the following three full partner universities:

  • The University of Edinburgh, UK
  • Ghent University, Belgium (coordinator)
  • Lund University, Sweden

Additionally, there are three associated partners where students can perform thesis research:

  • The University of Queensland, Australia
  • ETH Zurich, Switzerland
  • The University of Maryland, United States of America

Classes in Edinburgh focus on fire dynamics, fire safety engineering and structural design for fire. Classes in Ghent have a more general fire safety engineering focus. Classes in Lund emphasise enclosure fire dynamics, risk analysis and human behaviour.

The Fire Group at the University of Edinburgh hosts bespoke equipment to support groundbreaking research and teaching, with combined thermal and mechanical loading and use of the latest image analysis techniques.

IMFSE is very pleased to involved 15 industrial partners as official sponsors. With their annual financial contributions, it has been made possible to create the IMFSE Sponsorship Consortium, which awards IMFSE students with full or partial scholarships. 

Career opportunities:

We aim to train the next generation of leaders in this field; there is currently great demand for fire safety engineering graduates worldwide and graduates have gained relevant employment or enhanced career opportunities.

A fire safety engineer fulfils a broad range of duties, in various ways related to fire. This can range from designing fire protection for a space station, to protecting treasures such as the US Constitution, to safely securing the occupants of a high-rise building from fire hazards.

Fire safety engineers are in great demand by corporations, educational institutions, consulting firms, and government bodies around the world. You may find career opportunities in the following industries:

  • consulting engineering firms
  • fire departments
  • fire equipment and systems manufacturers
  • government
  • hospitals and health care facilities
  • insurance industry
  • research and testing laboratories
  • educational institutions
  • entertainment industry
  • forensic investigations
