Fire and fire safety are key issues in the Energy Industries - this new programme was developed with the Energy Institute to meet the academic skills requirement of Chartered Engineers. It places an emphasis on the pure engineering aspects of fire safety, applying chemistry, physics, mathematics, materials and computational engineering to help prevent deaths, injuries and financial losses that run to billions of pounds a year. Because the application of fire engineering in the real world is multi-disciplinary, so is this course - you’ll carry out project work, liaising between fire engineers and other members of the design and management teams.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
