The overriding aim of the course is that, after taking the course, the students will understand the various stages that a fire in a building goes through. Furthermore, the course is aimed at providing the students with a knowledge base concerning the different methods and techniques applied in the analysis of a fire sequence, as well as developing their ability to critically examine those methods in terms of practical application. The course is also aimed at increasing the engineering-related ability to construct and analyse models.
