During your Foundation Entry Year you will study alongside peers from related courses, whilst you gain a broad introduction to the principles and concepts of engineering, underpinned by a sound knowledge and understanding of scientific principles. Fire and fire safety are key issues in the Energy Industries - this new programme was developed with the Energy Institute to meet the academic skills requirement of Chartered Engineers. It places an emphasis on the pure engineering aspects of fire safety, applying chemistry, physics, mathematics, materials and computational engineering to help prevent deaths, injuries and financial losses that run to billions of pounds a year. Because the application of fire engineering in the real world is multi-disciplinary, so is this course - you’ll carry out project work, liaising between fire engineers and other members of the design and management teams. This course is ideal if you are aiming for senior roles after graduation in fire safety design roles. As a graduate you will be able to enter many roles within the fire industry, including with fire engineering companies, fire safety engineering consultants, fire safety officers within fire and rescue services or the wider public sector. You’ll get the chance to take part in international exchange visits with our partner colleges/universities in the Middle East and Hong Kong, where English is widely spoken.
