Year of Graduation: 2014

I am pursuing an MS in FPE. I chose to come to WPI because the fire protection program here is well known and the university provides an excellent platform for long-distance learning opportunities. I am working at a quality assurance institute checking the quality of commercial building materials and fire protection systems. The knowledge I have gained from my courses and the faculty at WPI has helped me evaluate the applicability of those materials. In my experience, graduate schools usually use theory and lectures to teach. At WPI I'm learning the theory, but I am able to practice it in fire protection engineering. It’s very hands-on. I especially enjoy learning from Professor Nicholas Dembsey. He teaches fire dynamics and fire modeling. His lectures are clear, comprehensive, and effective.
