Our key research is in material flammability, compartment fire dynamics, fire safety design in buildings, smouldering combustion, response of structures to fire and fire service equipment.
UQ operates a state-of-the-art fire laboratory in the heart of the St Lucia campus, which helps our researchers and commercial partners to better understand their materials or assemblies.
Our team contributes to course development and delivery for UQ's Graduate Certificate in Fire Safety and BE-ME and ME in Civil Engineering and Fire Safety Engineering.
Our group has a wide range of available research projects in Fire Science and Engineering at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Explore our journal papers, conference proceedings and posters and student theses.
The SFPE Student Chapter at UQ sits within UQ Fire, promoting educational events for students interested in Fire Safety Engineering.
