The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) is an international organization dedicated to the advancement of fire science, fire protection engineering and fire education.
The organization is committed to high ethical standards in all aspects of fire science. SFPE is comprised of local, regional and university chapters throughout the world which further the society’s goals. An SFPE university chapter was established by the current fire students at The University of Queensland (UQ-SFPE) and was officially formalized by SPFE in October 2014 marking the first SFPE chapter of any kind in Australia.
The chapter consists of current fire research students and students in the fire safety engineering BE/ME as well as alumni of the fire group who are now working in industry.
