Master of Engineering Courses
Students taking courses on campus for the Master of Engineering Degree work with an advisor to identify a course of study based on the student’s professional interests. Fire protection engineering courses are available to explore basic processes of fire behavior, prediction of fire development, the combustion of materials and furnishings, the effects of fire on structures and the environment, smoke management, evacuation and tenability analysis and the law. Courses may also be approved from other engineering departments or technical areas, e.g. mathematics.
In addition to the general rules of the Graduate School, certain special degree requirements are set out in departmental requirements. The degree requirement is to complete ten approved courses, including a minimum of six fire protection engineering courses. A thesis is not associated with this degree program, though students may pursue research via independent study on a topic approved by an advisor.
