Cutting Edge Fire Science

Our students and faculty are among an elite group who research the science behind wild fires in our state-of-the art Fire Lab.

One of only three in the nation, the lab includes a fire platform for incinerating forest materials and a thermal imaging camera to capture a detailed understanding of fire behavior.

Learning in some of the world’s most amazing forests and studying with professors who are experts in the field have helped make HSU a national leader in fire science.
