Title: Eastern Kentucky University’s Program of Distinction: Highlighting Research within the College of Justice and Safety

Keywords: Program of Distinction; Eastern Kentucky University; fire programs; research projects; student opportunities.

ABSTRACT

This project is intended to represent the Program of Distinction at EKU. The fire program at Eastern provides students several unique majors and encourages students to do research within their respective fields. This research is then presented at numerous conferences throughout the United States. Some of the hosts include, but are not limited to, the National Association of Fire Investigators (NAFI) and the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI). By presenting research at these and other fire related forums, students are showcased to potential employers, the heads of various committees, and given countless networking opportunities.

This research highlights each of the three fire programs offered at EKU and elaborates on what type of careers the students will have once they graduate. This poster will then give examples of previous, and current, students’ individual research projects. Topics which have been covered include fire pattern analysis, the use of 3D modelling, using pigs for accelerant/explosion detection, and how to rule out an outlet as the cause of a fire. Cutting edge research distinguishes the College of Justice and Safety as an invaluable asset to higher education in Kentucky.
