Content

The International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering (IMFSE) is a two-year educational programme in the Erasmus+ framework.

This masters programme is jointly offered by the following three full partner universities: The University of Edinburgh, UK; Ghent University, Belgium (coordinator); and Lund University, Sweden.

Additionally, there are three associated partners where students can perform thesis research: The University of Queensland, Australia; ETH Zurich, Switzerland; and The University of Maryland, United States of America.

Classes in Edinburgh focus on fire dynamics, fire safety engineering and structural design for fire. Classes in Ghent have a more general fire safety engineering focus. Classes in Lund emphasise enclosure fire dynamics, risk analysis and human behaviour.

Applications should be made through Ghent University.
