Fire safety is an essential feature of any building or industrial plant during its lifetime. The application of engineering principles to meet design objectives is the worldwide trend in the performance-based design approach.

The three IMFSE full partners build upon their excellence in research and experience with existing educational programmes in fire Safety Engineering to deliver this unique programme. The mobility scheme allows you to spend a semester in each of the three full institutes or three affiliated institutes.

The "International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering" degree is a joint engineering degree signed by all three full partner universities and three affiliated universities, regardless of your mobility track. By your graduation, you have the bonus of international experience which is a highly regarded asset in the professional world.

Practical class on Fire Science Laboratory course

This programme covers the fundamentals of Fire Science, including laboratory classes, fire safety engineering and relevant structural engineering topics. You will choose your own research project from an extensive range of options and this will run in parallel with teaching, culminating in a dissertation.
