The life of a fire safety engineer is diverse and demanding. This foundation programme will prepare you for it, giving you a broad-based, vocationally relevant qualification taught by leading academics and ex-fire professionals. You’ll study fire prevention, development and containment. You’ll get to understand the dynamics of fire, and how to design suppression systems that minimise the human, environmental and financial impact of fire. And alongside specific fire safety knowledge, you’ll develop all-important analytical and critical skills, alongside transferable IT and design abilities, that will stand you in good stead regardless of the career path you choose. This exciting, state-of-the-art programme provides both workplace and practical experience and is supported by the internationally-recognised Centre for Research in Fire and Hazard Science. The programme will prepare you for a future career as a fire professional involved in the design of fire systems, building control or fire consultancy. There is also the opportunity for progression onto the final year of a degree programme studying full-time or part-time or if you want to progress further, you’ll be eligible to top up your foundation degree.
