Worcester Polytechnic Institute


One of two graduate level fire engineering programs in the country, WPI Fire Protection Engineering has driven more research, developed more real-world solutions, and graduated more in-demand experts in the last 30 years.

Whether performing risk analyses with architects, engineering safer ships, investigating explosions, or influencing regulations around the world, fire protection engineers are working in this heroic science to save lives. Protecting our increasingly crowded world from the risk of fire means diving into a stimulating mix of engineering disciplines, mathematics, computer science, and even psychology.
