4-year B.E. in SAFETY & FIRE Engineering

A Bachelor’s Degree in Safety & Fire Engineering technology is designed to prepare students to assess and reduce the loss potential of fire, safety and hazardous material incidents. Safety & Fire cover the study of simulated fire-fighting exercises along with applied Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. It also involves the comprehensive study of subjects that deal with the designing of safer fire-resistant equipment, in-depth knowledge of fire, its properties, hazards and control measures.

Students examine current trends in Fire Sciences and receive practical instruction in equipment operation. The curriculum focuses on loss prevention, safety program management, occupational safety, fire prevention, suppression and investigation. In addition to traditional classroom teaching, instruction is conducted through hands-on training and computersimulated activities.

Learning outcomes

This field provides a great opportunity for individuals who are always willing to help and contribute to the social defence and to invent new strategies related to safety & fire. This course requires a blend of personal skills such as good communication, organisational ability, quick decision making and problem-solving skills and physical fitness & agility, the presence of mind, self-discipline, and leadership qualities.

The Safety & Fire Engineering course is suitable for those who are courageous and can step forward in case of critical fire situations for the safety of people and property. Also, candidates who have plans to become professors can also go for this unique branch of Engineering.

The major objective is to prepare students to excel in areas related to protection of people, property, and the environment. Typically, the Fire & Safety Engineers are trained to:

  • Anticipate, identify and evaluate hazardous conditions and practices.
  • Develop hazard control designs, methods, procedures, and programs.
  • Draft a future safety plan and statement based on real-time experiences and facts.
  • Measure, audit and evaluate the efficiencies of accidentprone processes.
  • Implement, administer and advise others on hazard control programmes.
Academic Framework

A typical Safety & Fire Engineering program coursework provides students with a solid foundation in the design, testing, analysis and implementation of fire protection systems. Students gain an advanced understanding of Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Computers in order to better solve technical problems. Some of the major topics included in the program’s core curriculum are:

  • Fire suppression and detection systems
  • National fire alarm codes
  • Fire behaviour and combustion
  • Hazardous materials
  • Human factors in fire and safety
  • Structure design for fire safety
Scope of Employment

Graduates from a Safety & Fire Engineering program can utilise their knowledge and skills in a variety of careers ranging from protection system design to consulting. In recent times, there is a heavy demand for Fire Engineers both in India and abroad, thereby providing them with a plethora of career options in public and private sectors, defense services, oil & natural gas sector, construction field work, automobile industries, airports, healthcare institutes and hospitals. Graduates can be employed as safety professionals like Safety Inspector, Fire Supervisor, Safety Engineer, Fire Men, Sub Officer, Safety Officer, HSE Engineer, Safety Supervisor, HSE Advisor, Safety Assistant, Fire Protection Technician and Fire Officer.
