Master on Civil protection, fire and safety engineering


IMFSE is a 2-year full-time master's program consisting of 120 ECTS credits in total. It is divided into 4 semesters of 30 ECTS credits each. The mobility structure, with possible changes in the location of the study after each semester, offers students the opportunity to gain the strengths and experience of 3 or more universities in the field of engineering fire safety.
The first semester at the University of Ghent or the University of Edinburgh covers basic topics in fire protection engineering. All students meet at Lund University to spend the second semester, emphasizing the dynamics of fire in confined spaces, risk analysis, and human behavior in fire. In-depth courses are given during the third semester at Ghent University or the University of Edinburgh. Semester 4 is dedicated to the master’s thesis and students can do it at one of these three universities or at one of the 5 universities associated with the master’s degree, including the UPC.
