Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

The programme aims to enhance the professional knowledge and skills of students in fire and safety engineering, and improve their learning attitudes, study skills, and intellectual and imaginative powers. The programme focuses on fundamental analysis and development of fire and safety science, and engineering concepts. It also offers high-quality teaching in the new topic of engineering performance-based fire codes. In safety engineering, the focus is on improving the safety of buildings, and accident prevention, hazard assessment, risk analysis, safety management and auditing, and safety in construction sites are also covered. Overall, the programme caters not only to graduates and professionals in building services engineering and fire and safety engineering, but also to those in the broader industries of construction, architecture, surveying and applied sciences.



Students gain in-depth knowledge of fire and safety engineering, as they take subjects that are related to general building-services engineering practices and come to appreciate how fire and safety designs are integrated into buildings. The programme also helps students to develop research techniques and critical-thinking skills.
