Fire Science and Engineering master's degree track

The Case School of Engineering at Case Western Reserve University offers a graduate degree track in Fire Science and Engineering, allowing you to specialize in fire protection engineering. This yearlong program allows you to choose either a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering or a Master of Science in Macromolecular Science and Engineering, both with a concentration in Fire Science.
Be prepared for the nascent demand of experts in combustion and fire protection with this fire protection engineering degree!
Through a 27-credit-hour curriculum, students explore and learn how to apply the fundamental principles of fire protection engineering, fire behavior and dynamics, protection and suppression systems, polymeric materials structure, properties and selection and more.
Case Western Reserve offers a unique intersection of expertise in macromolecular and combustion science and mechanical and chemical engineering, making us singularly suited to cover all aspects of fire protection, safety and flammability.
Our new program offers a recently developed curriculum that positions the degree at the cutting edge of fire science, and our close relationship with Underwriters Laboratories, worldwide leaders in flammability standards, means there’s no other degree that offers as comprehensive a review of fire science and engineering—and how it is utilized in industry.
