The pathways to becoming a fire protection engineer (FPE)
are diverse. An article entitled
Pathways to Becoming a Fire Protection Engineer describes the
many ways to become a FPE.
The following is a listing of the colleges and
universities that offer degree programs in FPE:
Bachelor's of Science & Master's
of Science in Fire Protection Engineering
protection engineering programs prepare graduates to use the
principles of science and engineering to protect people, property
and the environment from fire. These programs are geared toward
development of theoretical skills, and consist of a sequence of
courses on engineering fundamentals and design, built on a
foundation of mathematics and science courses.
Bachelor's of Science & Master's of
Science in Fire Protection Technology
Fire protection technology programs prepare graduates
with the technical skills necessary to enter careers in the
application, installation, operation and maintenance of built-in
These programs are
oriented toward application, and provide their students introductory
mathematics and science courses.
Other Fire Protection Related Degree
Other colleges and universities offer programs related to fire
protection that do not lead to a BS or MS degree in fire protection
engineering or fire protection engineering technology.
Colleges & Universities that Offer
Individual Courses in Fire Protection Engineering
engineering programs do not offer degree programs in fire protection
engineering, but offer individual courses in topics related to fire
protection engineering. These courses can be used to satisfy
elective requirements for a degree in another engineering discipline
or as transfer credits towards a fire protection engineering degree
at another university.
