|Careers in Fire Protection Engineering|
The following is a listing of the colleges and universities that offer degree programs in FPE:
Fire protection engineering programs prepare graduates to use the
principles of science and engineering to protect people, property and
the environment from fire. These programs are geared toward the
development of theoretical skills, and consist of a sequence of courses
on engineering fundamentals and design, built on a foundation of
mathematics and science courses.
Fire protection technology programs prepare graduates with the
technical skills necessary to enter careers in the application,
installation, operation and maintenance of built-in life/fire
safety.These programs are oriented toward application, and provide their
students introductory mathematics and science courses.
Other colleges and universities offer programs related to fire
protection that do not lead to a BS or MS degree in fire protection
engineering or fire protection engineering technology.
Some engineering programs do not offer degree programs in fire
protection engineering, but offer individual courses in topics related
to fire protection engineering. These courses can be used to satisfy
elective requirements for a degree in another engineering discipline or
as transfer credits towards a fire protection engineering degree at
