             Why Fire Engineering/
            Fire Safety Engineering ?
   Fire Engineering is the science of formulating fire safety
    solutions or mitigating measures for modern building or
    structures based on qualifying hazards, assessing risks and
    gauging human response.

   “Fire Engineering Approach” is now widely adopted in world-
    class cities for complex and voluminous buildings.

   The Buildings and Fire Services Departments, HKSAR
    Government have adopted a performance-based design
    approach in building safety. Apart from the building safety
    design using the traditional prescriptive codes, these programmes
    will also emphasis on performance based-design with an aim to
    prepare students to meet the need of the profession.
