Recommendations for a Model Curriculum for a BS Degree in Fire Protection Engineering
The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) has developed a document that is intended to provide recommendations for the development of a Model Curriculum for a Bachelors of Science (BS) Degree in Fire Protection Engineering (FPE).
The model is based on a four-year program. Each school year is divided
into two semesters (fall and spring). It is not intended to imply that
this is the only acceptable combination of courses that should be
offered for such a program. Also, it is not intended to provide a
detailed list of individual topics to be covered within each course.
This model curriculum can give you a good feel on the types of courses
you will see in a fire protection engineering program.
Recommended Curriculum Content for an MS/ME in Fire Protection Engineering
In 2013,the SFPE Higher Education Committee worked with a special Task Group made up of educators from six different countries to publish "Recommended Curriculum Content for an MS/ME in Fire Protection Engineering.” This document is intended to provide recommendations for the development of a Model Curriculum Content for a Master of Science (MS), Master of Engineering (ME) or equivalent Degree in Fire Protection Engineering (FPE). Given current interest in the development of new MS programs in FPE, as well as the desire to maintain existing programs that are state of the art, SFPE offers this document as a helpful guideline. The document is written in a broad fashion in an attempt to offer the most versatility. While there are key core topics that should be required, this document is not intended to imply that there is only one specific or narrow approach to the development of such programs. Multiple topics may be covered within an individual course or series of courses.
