Objective The objective of this Erasmus Mundus Master Course is to establish a top-level education programme in Fire Safety Engineering.Course duration Two years (120 ECTS)Brief DescriptionCurrently, the application of fire safety codes and design procedures is evolving from a prescriptive towards a performance-based approach. This evolution is accompanied with an equally drastic transformation of the educational framework and an increase in the number of needed professionals in Fire Safety Engineering.The 2-year course consists of four semesters of 30 ECTS-credits each. The mobility structure, with possible change in study location after each semester, gives the students the opportunity to gain from the strengths and expertise of each of the three universities. The first semester, covering basic topics in fire safety engineering, is taught in Ghent and Edinburgh. All students spend the second semester in Lund, with emphasis on enclosure fire dynamics, risk analysis and human behaviour. The third semester is again taught in Ghent (for general Fire Safety Engineering) or Edinburgh (with focus on fire and structures engineering in the context of Fire Safety Engineering). The fourth semester is devoted to the master thesis, hosted by one or more of the three institutions or associated partners. An international experienceThe language of instruction is English. The students spend semester 1 and 3 in either Ghent or Edinburgh. All students spend semester 2 in Lund. The fourth term covers the master's thesis, for which one of the three partners will be responsible, although the work can be done in another institute (if appropriate). A number of EU-funded scholarships are offered to the best qualified candidates.Career prospectsStudents graduating from the Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering will be qualified for technical or scientific jobs in the field of FSE and will have a network of contacts in the field. DiplomaThe degrees of 'International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering' (Belgium and United Kingdom) and 'Teknologie masterexamen Huvudområde: Brandteknik' (Sweden) are awarded on a jointly drawn up diploma document, signed by the three partner universities.Website:
