Long Distance Learning
Courses at Missouri University of Science and Technology
Graduate students at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (MS&T) pursuing a Master’s or Doctorate Degree in Explosives Engineering may earn credit towards their degree by taking long distance learning courses that are offered as part of MS&T’s collaboration with Colorado School of Mines. The Advanced Explosives Processing Group at Colorado School of Mines is excited to be able to offer these specialized courses, which include practical training in industry applications of explosives and experimentation instrumentation methods.
Ultra-High Speed Imaging Methods in Explosives Engineering (Spring 2019)
Graduate students at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (MS&T) pursuing a Masters or Doctorate Degree in Explosives Engineering may earn credit towards their degree by taking long distance learning courses that are offered as part of MS&T’s collaboration with Colorado School of Mines. AXPRO is excited to be able to offer these specialized courses, which include practical training in industry applications of explosives and experimentation in instrumentation methods.
Dr. Vilem Petr and Dr. Paul Worsey have begun a collaboration to teach a course on Ultra-High-Speed Imaging Methods at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. A wide range of material will be covered, including detonation and shock-wave physics, an introduction into ultra-high-speed imaging, lighting and selecting lenses for best results, triggering strategies and flash x-ray systems. For more course information please visit the following flyer.
The current scheduled class dates are: March 25-29, 2019. The course will be held on campus at Colorado School of Mines, inside Brown Building, room 125.
For more information, please consult the course syllabus.
Accommodations for Currently Registered Students
It is highly suggested that hotel reservations be made in advance. A list of hotels, motels, bed-and-breakfasts and other accommodations that are located in the vicinity of the Colorado School of Mines campus can be found on the Continuing Education site. We have set aside a number of rooms for MS&T students at the Holiday Inn at 17140 W Colfax Ave. in Golden, Colorado. These rooms are available at a discounted rate and pre-booked for your convenience.
Energetic Materials Performance Validated By Numerical And Experimental Studies With High Fidelity Detonation Physic Laboratory (SUMMER 2019)
Dr. Petr was invited to teach a course on the Special Explosives Applications at the Missouri University of Science and Technology’s (MS&T) Explosive Engineering department in summer 2018. This course was launched in spring 2016 and has been well accepted. The first part of the course will be held at the Explosive Research Laboratory (ERL) in Idaho Springs, CO and the second part will be offered through a distance learning program at MS&T. The financial support from this course will be used to improve future distance learning courses. This course will teach advanced theory and special application of explosives for topics other rock excavation. Students will be introduced to different industrial, military and government special uses such as avalanche control, explosive welding, forming, synthesis and hardening, aerospace, forest service, agriculture and oil industry applications.
