The University for Continuing Education Krems is the first university in the German-speaking world to address the aspects of security and safety from the perspectives of economics, social sciences, law and technology and offers individual seminars as well as university courses in the field of fire safety. The part-time university course "Fire Safety Management, MSc" teaches the essential skills for developing solution-oriented fire safety management concepts and their implementation. In particular, practice-oriented knowledge and skills in the legal, technical and economic aspects of fire safety as well as management-oriented social skills and the associated personal, team and organizational skills are taught.

Through a multidisciplinary approach, we integrate technology, legislation and management to provide a holistic understanding of complex fire protection issues.

PöhnixSiemens AG Austria is donating an evocative prize - the "Phoenix" - for the best master's thesis on the Fire Safety Management course.
The figure, also known as the firebird, has been found in many mythologies since the earliest times, such as Egyptian, Greek and Chinese, but also in the modern world, for example in the popular Harry Potter books. The phoenix has a meaningful connection with the element of fire and the sun and is one of the universal symbols of resurrection and rebirth, as well as luck and loyalty.
