– The Fire Protection Program is relatively wide, with a focus on careers in the field of fire and building consultant and civil protection. They currently has about 170 graduates of fire engineers from Luleå University of Technology and also represented in agencies, real estate companies, universities and research institutes, mostly in Sweden but also abroad. There is a deficit of fire engineers in Sweden, which is reflected in the more or less non-existent unemployment and relatively inflated salaries, says Michael Försth.
The program runs for 3.5 years, with additional studies further 1.5 years to obtain a degree in fire technology. The adoption of 30 students per year for fire protection program at the university.
