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.

Eligibility: BE / B.Tech is 10+2 or equivalent examination, with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.10+2 / I.Sc. Phy., Chem. & Math. Min. 50% Marks in each subject.One must also pass the qualifying exam JEE (Joint Entrance Exam) conducted by the IIT's.
