Fire protection engineering (also known
as fire engineering or fire safety engineering) is the application
of science and engineering principles to protect people
and their environments from the destructive effects of fire.
Fire protection engineers typically design safeguards that
aid in fighting fires, such as alarm, sprinkler, and smoke
control systems. They are also employed as fire investigators,
including such very large-scale cases as the analysis of
the World Trade Center's collapse. NASA uses fire protection
engineers in its space program to ensure safety.
Historically, fire protection engineering
traces its roots as far back as Ancient Rome, when the Emperor
Nero ordered the city to be rebuilt after a catastrophic
fire. In the United States, the University of Maryland and
Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) are the primary sources
of formal education in this growing engineering discipline.
