The worldwide trend from prescriptive towards performance-based fire safety design has resulted in a strong need for high-level education in the broad, multi-disciplinary field of Fire Safety Engineering (FSE). The International Master of
Science in Fire Safety Engineering (IMFSE) offers students the required knowledge, skills and competences to develop high-quality performance-based designs.
IMFSE is jointly offered by 3 Full Partner Universities: Ghent University (Belgium), Lund University (Sweden) and University of Edinburgh (UK). Additionally, 3 Associated Partners offer MSc thesis research opportunities: University of Queensland
(Australia), ETH Zürich (Switzerland) and University of Maryland (USA).
The 2-year IMFSE program consists of 4 semesters (30 ECTS credits each) and has a mobility structure (new location possible every semester) that enables students to benefit from the different strengths of the involved universities.
All IMFSE students are strongly encouraged and guided to undertake an internship during the break between years 1 and 2, often with the sponsoring companies that are located in several countries and represent a number of relevant sectors.
Currently, the IMFSE program has 12 Erasmus+ full scholarships available per intake. In addition, several full and partial scholarships are offered through the IMFSE Sponsorship Consortium.

The Fire Protection and Safety Engineering Technology (FPSET) Bachelor of Science program began at Oklahoma State University in 1937. The FPSET curriculum prepares graduates to assess risk and reduce loss potential in a variety of applications.
The demand by business and industry for risk control specialists has resulted in the evolution of the program that now places emphasis on fire protection, safety, and occupational/environmental health. The FPST program prepares students
for careers including fire protection engineering, systems design, safety specialists, or authorities having jurisdiction. Students receive a world-class education that includes applied learning through hands-on laboratory activities,
emphasizing theoretical principles learned in the classroom.
Additionally, FPSET has a Master of Science program in Fire Safety and Explosion Protection, a natural extension of the Bachelor of Science program, preparing students for research or professional practice in fields such as fire protection
engineering, explosion protection, fire and explosion hazard control, and process safety. This program is designed for both those with a fire protection background or other engineering disciplines. Students have the opportunity to grow
in their knowledge through either a creative component or thesis route
WPI gives fire protection engineers the technical knowledge and practical skills to make the world a safer place. Home to the first master’s program and one of only three fire protection engineering graduate programs in the United States,
WPI’s Fire Protection Engineering Department has driven significant cutting-edge research, developed real-world solutions through its state-of-the-art fire laboratories, and graduated highly trained, influential, in-demand experts.
WPI’s internationally renowned faculty members are recognized for cutting-edge research and teaching focused on making the world safer by tackling challenging questions about fire behavior and our response to it. Students work alongside them
in state-of-the-art facilities to gain and create knowledge that informs and shapes regulatory policy, building design, manufacturing processes, first responder operations, and product performance standards.
Enroll in our Master of Science or Graduate Certificate programs, offered online and on campus. Work with our industry expert faculty to customize a program around your professional experience and career aspirations.
The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) is a professional society for fire protection engineering established in 1950 and incorporated as an independent organization in 1971. It is the professional society representing those practicing the field of fire protection engineering. The Society has over 5,000 members and 100+ chapters, including many student chapters worldwide.
