Canterbury's programmes in Engineering are ranked first in New Zealand (The NZ Government's Tertiary Education Commission's latest Performance Based Research Fund quality assessment), and Canterbury offers the only dedicated programme in Fire Engineering in New Zealand. Fire Engineering is the art and science of designing buildings and facilities for life safety and property protection in the event of an unwanted fire. Fire Engineering includes understanding the behaviour of fires and smoke, the behaviour of people exposed to fires and the performance of burning buildings, as well as the impact of fire protection systems including detection, alarm and sprinkler systems.
