History

The Fire Protection Engineering program on bachelor level was started in 1986, and the Division of Fire Safety Engineering was the key to the establishment of the program. The division is today responsible for the majority of the courses taken by the students at the program, and since 1986 more than 700 fire protection engineers have graduated from Lund University. Since 2001 the division is also one of the key divisions in the education program in Risk Management and Safety Engineering offered by Lund University on a masters level. 

In 2010 the division, together with Ghent University and the University of Edinburgh, launched an international two-year educational program in Fire Safety Engineering on a masters level. The students spend the second semester in Lund, where emphasis lies on enclosure fire dynamics, risk analysis and human behaviour.

More information about the education and research conducted at the division is presented in the articles below. Unfortunately, only two of them are available in english.
