This program consists of a cluster of five thematically related fire protection engineering courses, none of which were included in your former master's program of study. The specific courses are determined in conjunction with an academic advisor and are chosen from the graduate level courses that comprise the Master of Science program. Up to two courses taken at WPI prior to formal admission may be counted toward the certificate. All courses taken for the advanced certificate may be later applied toward the master's degree in fire protection engineering.
