Fire Protection Engineering

Course Description

Fire Engineering is concerned with the applications of scientific and technical principles to the growth, mitigation, and suppression of fire. This includes the effects of fire on people, on structures, on commodities, and on operations. The identification of fire hazards and their risk, relative to the cost of protection, is an important aspect of fire safety design. The fire engineering course mainly covers the fundamental knowledge of fire dynamics and fire modeling. Moreover, the modern fire protection technology such as fire sprinkler and alarm systems, exit and smoke control systems, and the active and passive protection systems is also included in the course. Besides, the plumbing services for fire suppression systems and buildings are also introduced.
