In just a brief duration of time - in a few minutes or even in a fraction of a second - a fire or an explosion can have catastrophic consequences in residential buildings or in industrial plant. In the UK alone, hundreds of people get killed and tens of thousands are injured every year. Some single incidents cost millions of pounds. The total monetary cost of fire and explosions in the UK is estimated at £7 billion per year or approximately 1% of GDP.
This course offers advanced training in the field of Fire and Explosion Engineering for candidates wishing to either embark on a new career in an exciting and developing field or if already working in the sector, to formalise/upgrade their professional qualifications and experience with transferable academic qualifications.
- Most taught modules are delivered in intensive CPD one week (block) format. Modules are spread evenly throughout the year.
- This block module format allows the simultaneous participation of both full-time and part-time students. Many of our students take the programme on a part time basis with the support of their employers.
- The taught modules are assessed by coursework and 'open book' tests; typically within a period of 6-10 weeks from start to finish.
- Extensive participation in course delivery by lecturers from industry brings strong industrial involvement to the programme. Visit our
