Fire protection engineering is one of the best kept secrets in terms of lucrative and fulfilling career prospects for students considering engineering careers. For those who have never heard of fire protection engineering, it is the application of science and engineering principles to protect people and the environment from the dangers of fire. Fire protection engineering is one of the hottest career choices available for students interested in engineering and making the world a safer place. Fire protection engineers are in very high demand both in the United States and across the world, and work everywhere: in big and small cities, urban areas and rural communities, even remote wilderness areas. Some work in business offices or classrooms, others in factories or research labs or onsite at a building location.
Fire protection engineers enjoy high salaries and great job security, as there’s a high demand for their expertise. Fire protection engineers have significantly higher starting salaries than do college graduates with bachelor’s degrees in many other fields. The median starting salary for a fire protection engineer is nearly $65,000.
