Course summary

Fire Risk Engineering is a relatively new discipline within the construction industry, driven by developments in fire safety legislation.

The GCU programme, one of the few offered in the UK, was developed in close partnership with the Fire and Rescue Service. It is unique in its focus on fire safety design and regulations. It was the first in the UK to achieve academic exemption by the Institution of Fire Engineers at MIFireE level.

The course has also been approved by the UK Engineering Council for IEng standard route and partial fulfilment of CEng standard route. Risk management, forecasting, problem solving and communication are all part of the programme, which has strong links with consultants and regulators who share their knowledge through guest lectures, case study materials and site visits. A number of Fire and Rescue Service Officers are associate lecturers.

You will have the opportunity to study abroad or undertake an accredited work placement, as well as an optional work placement.

Your career

Career prospects are excellent with the fire services, construction companies, consultancy, offshore oil industry, and local authorities in the UK and overseas.
