Fire protection engineering program started in Minnesota

The University of St. Thomas in Minnesota has started a fire engineering program--the first to be opened in the Midwest in 25 years.

11/17/2011


The University of St. Thomas (UST) and the University of Maryland have announced a joint agreement to promote a Master’s in Fire Protection Engineering program in the Twin Cities region. The program, focused exclusively on the practice of fire protection engineering, will be the first program in the Midwest region in 25 years.

The 30-credit master’s program will be offered to students beginning in the Spring 2012 term. Course-work will be a combination of on-campus work at the University of St. Thomas (UST) and distance learning with the nationally recognized Department of Fire Protection Engineering at the University of Maryland (UMD). Interested students with degrees in Engineering are eligible to apply. A memorandum of understanding between the two universities allows selected graduate programs from the University of St. Thomas to apply directly to the UMD Fire Protection Engineering master's program.
