The University of Maryland offers a Master of Engineering and Graduate Certificate in Engineering in Fire Protection Engineering via both on-campus and distance programs. While some students take courses via both modes, most students select to take courses either on campus or via the distance option. This page addresses the courses and requirements for students enrolled in the on-campus classes. Any students interested in the distance option should go to the FPE Online page. Students interested in taking courses through a mixture of the options should contact the advisor for the program, Dr. James Milke.
Full admission as a degree seeking student requires:
- A bachelor’s degree, GPA of 3.0 or better, in engineering or a related field from an accredited institution
- Courses in structural mechanics*, differential equations, fluid mechanics and heat transfer
- 3-letters of recommendations
- Official copies of transcripts
*Structural mechanics is not required for students interested in pursuing the Online Graduate Certificate in Engineering degree. Structural mechanics will be required along with differential equations, fluid mechanics and heat transfer for students interested in pursuing the Master of Engineering degree.
