International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering

The International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering (IMFSE) is a two-year educational programme in the Erasmus+ framework. This masters 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: 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. 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. IMFSE is very pleased to involved seven 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. The current sponsors are: - Arup - IFIC Forensics - UL - Promat - FPC - BRE - Fire Engineered Solutions Ghent
