Fire Safety and Explosion Protection-Engineering Technology, MS - Online
Why study Engineering Technology online through OSU?
This is the nation's only master's degree program that is dedicated to both fire and
explosion protection and related to safety. The program is geared toward recent graduates
and professionals in a variety of industries, including insurance companies, the oil
& gas industry, and fire protection engineering companies. The graduates of this
program will have the deeper knowledge base that is needed to safeguard people in
Oklahoma, the nation and the world.
Online learning through the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT)
provides a flexible alternative to traditional on-campus courses as a convenient way
to earn your degree whenever your career or other life commitments prevent you from
taking classes on campus in a traditional setting.
Online students utilize Canvas, OSU's online learning portal to watch lectures, turn
in assignments and communicate with classmates and professors.
Courses taught online are of identical quality and instruction as those taught in
traditional classrooms. CEAT Online Learning and the FSEP faculty are here to help you succeed!
The FSEP Program is intended to be especially attractive to engineering and engineering
technology graduates from any discipline, and many science majors. The program is
interdisciplinary in nature and students with undergraduate degrees in fire and safety
related fields or other STEM disciplines are invited to apply for admission.
The program consists of 30 hours of course work with a thesis option and 32 hours
of course work with a non-thesis option.
Students in this program will advance their ability to
Apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering
and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
Design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined
engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined engineering problems
appropriate to the discipline.
Function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
Understand ethical and professional responsibilities and the impact of technical and/or
scientific solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts.
Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret
the results to improve processes.
Graduate students for admission would be expected to have a B.S. degree in engineering
or engineering technology from an ABET accredited (or equivalent) program. Alternately,
B.S. students from other related disciplines may also be considered. They should
have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0/4.0 or higher. These criteria are generally deemed
necessary for students to be successful within the curriculum. However, applicants
not quite meeting the standards may be granted probationary admission and/or required
to take leveling classes, based upon their overall academic and professional practice,
history, accomplishments, and standardized test scores.
