This course introduces the student to the theory, practice and hands-on aspects of a variety of methods currently used in fire modelling and analysis, including special tutorials and discussion of common fire modeling software. Participants are encouraged to bring their experiences and views as in-class discussions provide many opportunities for the exchange of information

To encourage students from industry, the course is offered in a week-long (40 hour) intensive lecture format with graded coursework submitted electronically over the Spring term (May - Aug 2010). Classes are held at the Waterloo Region Emergency Services Training and Research Complex. All course materials and lunches are provided.

The course can be taken as a single course by students not registered in a graduate studies program at UW (a certificate of attendance can be supplied), as part of a 4-course program leading to a Departmental Fire Safety certificate, or as a course requirement for any Fire Safety or other graduate program (MASc, MEng or PhD) at UW. Further information, including the course outline, costs, travel and registration information can be found in the attached brochure (ME 770 Fire Modeling).
