Master of Science in Explosives Engineering

Format: Online

Program Description:

There is an immediate and growing need for highly trained explosives professionals in the explosive, mining, and civil excavating fields and government and defense industries. Employers are looking for engineers and scientists with sophisticated skills in the integration of explosives technology into complex systems in a wide range of applications. Employers are also seeking MS graduates because they can move quickly into managerial positions. Missouri S&T faculty are involved in a variety of explosives related research programs. They teach and direct the Explosives Engineering program, in conjunction with instruction by industry specialists in a wide range of applications. Students will have opportunities to assist faculty, both in research and teaching, as well as interact with faculty and graduate students in other engineering and science fields, such as Civil, Architectural, Mechanical, Chemical, Aerospace, Electrical, Geological and Materials Engineering and Geology, Geophysics, Chemistry, and Physics. The Master of Science in Explosives Engineering requires a minimum of 30 hours of graduate credit and is offered as both thesis and non-thesis options. A core of four courses is required of all students and a module of allied courses in departments outside of explosives engineering is encouraged. All participants in explosives courses must submit to a security background check.


Since 1913, Missouri University of Science and Technology has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
