The following educational institutions are a few of the universities that offer education in the field of Fire Protection Engineering. For more information please see the Careers in Fire Protection Engineering website.

California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) - San Luis Obispo, California

Cal Poly is pleased to announce it now offers a Master of Science degree program in Fire Protection Engineering (FPE). This program is only the third MS degree program in FPE in the United States and is the only one offered on the West Coast. The FPE program at Cal Poly builds on the learn-by-doing philosophy that has ranked Cal Poly as the best public master's level university in the west by U.S. News and World Report for 17 years in a row. The FPE program is designed to provide students the knowledge as well as practical skills so that they can enter the FPE workforce and be productive immediately.
