Fire safety engineers implement novel engineering solutions across multiple disciplines and industries.
From the design of modern skyscrapers to the materials chosen to fabricate aeroplanes. Innovation in both construction techniques and materials as well as in how we use buildings results is a need for fire safety engineers to be involved in the design process of many buildings.
Changes in regulations across Australia and internationally mean that the need to include qualified and registered fire safety engineers on engineering projects is growing rapidly, and the demand for these specialists ever increasing.
UQ offers dedicated fire safety engineering programs that produce graduates who understand the design principles required to improve fire and life safety so we can build more resilient cities and communities. Our programs are delivered by recognised international experts in the field, and our graduates are highly regarded and sought after by industry.
