Overview

Fire safety design plays an important role in helping to make buildings and the people occupying them safe in the event of a fire. Fire safety is generally an overarching concept that covers multiple disciplines, from architecture, structural design, and building services.

The ICE Bristol and Bath Early Careers Network will be hosting the Arup Fire Engineering team for an in-person workshop at the University of Bath. In this workshop, you will get an introduction to the principles of fire engineering and then an opportunity to practice applying them in a design challenge, with guidance from the fire team. You will gain an insight into the design considerations of fire safety for different types of buildings and the people who occupy them.

This event is suitable for any students and apprentices who are interested in learning about fire engineering and its applications, as the content draws upon a wide range of subjects from civil/structural engineering, architecture, mechanical engineering, building service engineering and more.

Refreshments will be provided.
