The goals of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) Student Chapter of Greater London are to bring together students interested in fire protection engineering based in the city of London, to present fire protection as a rewarding and viable career path, and to promote the industry. We gained official Chapter Status in March 2019 as the 100th Chapter of SFPE.

We are currently around 30 members from 4 different universities (Imperial College London, University of Greenwich, Glasgow Caledonian University and University College London). We host monthly seminars that span all areas of fire engineering from wildland fires to façade fires to evacuation modelling. We invite people in industry, firefighters, university academics, and researchers. Our visitors come from all over the world.

Occasionally we also get together for social events such as drinks, quizzes, and dinners. We’d love for you to join us. 

Please get in contact if you would be interested in giving a talk to our chapter, organize a networking event, become our sponsor or if you would like to know more about what we do.
