If you’re an engineer qualified to Higher National or Foundation Degree level and are seeking to develop expertise in the application of scientific, engineering and technological principles and tools to resolve design problems in fire and fire safety applications, then this top-up course is for you. The design and safety of buildings for industrial and commercial use is becoming more complex due to the ever increasing awareness of health and safety needs in the working environment, so the ability to solve the problems of fire prevention and control is ever increasing. Fire Safety Engineering is ideal if you are aiming for a senior role after graduation in safety design or want to become a fire safety engineer. Students are encouraged to seek summer placements within supporting fire industries and every effort is made to assist in this important aspect of development and service integration. International opportunities include travel and work placement with ‘Operation Florian’ which is a charitable organisation working to improve fire service infrastructures in countries where they are lacking. Recent deployments have been to Zimbabwe. There is the potential for international exchange visits with other universities or with international fire safety companies, especially construction-based companies. Some of our graduates have entered leading fire engineering consulting firms such as, Buro Happold, ARUP, Warrington Exova and various Fire and Rescue Services around the UK and internationally.
