Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Students are introduced to Fire Protection Engineering (FPE). Discussions on contemporary fire safety topics are designed to raise your interest and understanding of fire, its impact on people, property and the environment and methods to mitigate the threat of fire. Students will have hands-on experiences through a set of demonstrations and a final experiment to explore fire behavior and the performance of fire safety systems. The final experiment will apply the principles of fire behavior and fire safety systems to build and test a fire safe, small-scale residence.
