MSc Structural and Fire Safety Engineering

We would like to hear your views on a potential new postgraduate opportunity in Fire Safety Engineering.

MSc Degree Programme: 

Innovative design allows more interesting and functional architecture but challenges traditional concepts of fire safety. To respond to these demands takes specialist knowledge and advanced skills in engineering analysis.

This programme covers the fundamentals of fire science, including laboratory classes, fire safety engineering and relevant structural engineering topics, such as finite element methods.

You will gain knowledge of the critical issues in structural fire safety engineering, and an understanding of relevant fire and structural behaviours.

You will become familiar with performance-based approaches to design and have an awareness of the capabilities – and limitations – of relevant advanced modelling methods for structures and fire.

For more information about the programme, its structure, the entry requirements etc. please see the University Degree Finder page.
