    I can't say enough good things about WPI. Are you looking at a BS or MS level program?

    Going full time, you can complete a BS in one of the traditional engineering disciplines and an MSFPE in just five years. If you already have a BS in engineering or fire technology*, you can complete your MSFPE entirely online.

    *(If you don't have an engineering degree, you'll probably need to take some undergrad level courses as prerequisites for some of the grad level courses.)

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    Not to toot my own horn, and its technically a fire protection engineering program, but Oklahoma State. What exactly do you want to do after graduation?

    Thank you all for replying to my earlier post. I have a B.tech degree in E.C.E from India. It is ABET accredited. I want to do M.S. in Fire protection engineering. I was thinking about WPI. Any comments/ suggestions.
