The Master of Fire Safety Engineering aims to provide professionals with the special skills and knowledge to develop, assess and evaluate fire safety engineering solutions for buildings. It is relevant to professionals developing performance solutions using the fire engineering guidelines to meet the objectives and performance requirements of building regulations. Graduates will also acquire the skill to independently appraise the literature and address fire safety engineering issues faced by the building industry. This program can be completed in two years of full-time study, but the recommended study load is completion in three years in part-time mode.

The program has been designed primarily for External delivery. Many of the units have non-compulsory workshops that can be either attended online or on campus. Students are encouraged to attend these workshops to gain the benefit of interaction with their peers. Students will need to undertake a year’s relevant work experience if not already working within the fire engineering industry.

Study Mode
Three years part-time. Students can fast-track by completing additional units per semester to complete the course earlier.
