As structures in the built environment are climbing ever higher, and going deeper underground, the need for robust and intelligent fire strategies is ever increasing. Most architects, design engineers, building control officers, and other professional people working in the built environment do not receive sufficient instruction in fire safety engineering during their training to fully understand the complexities or methods of fire safety design for modern infrastructure.
The University of Edinburgh is one of only a handful of institutions worldwide who have been studying and teaching in the field of Fire Safety Engineering for several decades.
Running for the 9th time, this three day course aims to provide a strong fondation in the fundamentals of fire behaviour and the tools used to design buildings against the risk of fire in a performance-based regulatory environment. Topics include:
The programme is designed as a thorough introduction to the subjects, at a graduate level, and will be suitable for Fire Safety & Security Consultants, Building Control Officers, Regulators, and other professional persons.
(Programme above is the revised programme for 2017)
Dates: This course will hopefully return in 2019
Venue: The University of Edinburgh, King's Buildings
