The Department of Fire Safety Engineering is responsible for education and research in Fire Safety Engineering and Risk Management. The scope of what we do is to a large extent interdisciplinary, and we are responsible for essential parts of the Fire Protection Engineering programme on bachelor level, the Risk Management and Safety Engineering programme, and the Fire Safety Engineering programme on masters level. In addition, we are responsible for the education of PhD students in the research field of fire safety engineering. Co-operation with other universities and colleges are carried out regarding both education and research.
