Data Science

Take your place at the front line of fire protection engineering.

Whether it’s about firefighter safety, combustion protection, or studying the effects of materials in fire conditions, fire protection engineering research is multi-disciplinary in its nature.  Mechanical, civil, electrical, and chemical engineers all have the qualifications to join our program and contribute to making our world safer. Programs are delivered on-campus or online.

WPI’s Department of Fire Protection Engineering, in concert with industry leaders, has developed state-of-the-art laboratories where master’s and PhD students work with faculty and industry professionals in a collaborative environment, searching for the best way to build and protect against fire.

Please send me information about WPI’s Fire Protection Engineering graduate programs.
