Fire Safety Engineering

The programme draws on the expertise and resources of the Fire Safety Engineering Research and Technology Centre in terms of teaching staff (with core teaching staff all actively involved in research) and experimental facilities; students on the programme have the opportunity to use state-of-the-art facilities both within the taught programme and to progress experimental research projects which are often designed to complement current research projects being undertaken by staff; students also have the opportunity to work closely with practitioners in the design module to develop a fire safety strategy for a real complex building.

Entry requirements

Applicants should: have gained an Honours or non-Honours degree in a related science or engineering discipline or have gained an equivalent standard in a Postgraduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, Graduate Certificate or an approved alternative qualification; and provide evidence of competence in mathematics (A level Mathematics or equivalent).

Course modules

Heat transfer and thermofluids; fire dynamics; structural fire engineering; fire engineering laboratory; active fire protection systems; people and fire and fire safety engineering design; industrial fire safety; computer modelling in fire engineering; quantitative risk analysis.

Assessment methods

A diverse range of assessment methods are adopted in the programme to enhance your learning experience and help you understand and enhance your individual performance. Modules are assessed either entirely by coursework or by a combination of coursework and examination. Assessment may include group and individual presentations, laboratory reports, essays, design project work. As a student you should expect to be given clear, explicit information and guidance on the assessment and understand how it will be marked. You will also be given timely and relevant individual or group feedback on all work allowing you to identify areas of weakness and feed forward into your learning.
