Program Overview

Program Description:
The “International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering (IMFSE)”, is commonly organized by the universities of Ghent (Belgium), Edinburgh (UK) and Lund (Sweden). This two-year educational programme in the Erasmus Mundus framework is coordinated by Ghent University.

IMFSE welcomes holders of a Bachelor’s/Master’s degree or recognized equivalent from an accredited institution (minimum 3 years full-time study or 180 ECTS credits) in civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, chemical, industrial engineering, material sciences, chemistry, physics, applied physics, architecture, urbanism and spatial planning or a related discipline. Students in their last year of such a Bachelor programme can also apply but need to obtain their engineering diploma prior to the start of the IMFSE-programme.

Setting Description:
The main objective is creating an educational programme that provides the required knowledge for a professional fire safety engineer in a Performance Based Design environment. Besides inter-university cooperation, student mobility in Europe is one of the main points of interest of the overall programme. The mobility structure, with possible change in study location after each semester, gives the students the opportunity to gain from the strengths and expertise of each of the three universities.
