The FPE Dept at the University of Maryland was established within the Clark School of Engineering in 1956. Our mission is to reduce the burden of fire loss on life and property by providing the highest quality of scientifically based education, research, and outreach in fire protection engineering, and in fire related safety, health, and environmental issues. The Department is highly research active. The FPE Department does world leading research in the areas of fire modeling, fire suppression, fire detection, flammability of materials, wildfires and fire hazards of energy storage systems, among others.
