Courses

MNGN 333 and 444

Explosives Engineering I & II (MNGN 333 and 444): The Mining Engineering Department offers fundamental explosives engineering courses for CSM undergraduate and graduate students every semester. The goal of both courses is to introduce students to the science of explosives and the overwhelming variety of productive uses of explosives. Explosives Engineering I, MNGN 333, is required for students in the explosives minor programs and focuses on laboratory activities. Explosives Engineering II, MNGN 444, is an elective course, culminating in the student completion of an applied explosives research project. These courses can be taken in any order. 

Students interested in explosives engineering should look at the documents below for more information on the current class.

MNGN 333: Explosives Engineering I

MNMG 333 gives students in engineering and applied sciences the opportunity to examine and develop a fundamental knowledge including terminology and understanding of explosives science and engineering concepts. Student learning will be demonstrated by assignments, quizzes, and exams. Learning assistance will come in the form of multidisciplinary lectures complemented by expert lecturers from government, industry and the explosives engineering community.

Minor Programs and Area of Special Interest

Colorado School of Mines offers minor programs (18 credit hours) in Explosives Engineering and Explosives Material Processing through the Mining Engineering and Metallurgy and Materials Engineering departments, respectively. The Explosives Engineering program is for the non-mining engineering student that wants to gain a background in basic explosives science and the use of explosives in a mining environment. Explosives Material Processing is for the non-metallurgy student interested in the application of explosives for metal forming and material synthesis. For students unable to fit a minor program into their schedule, Mines also offers an area of special interest (12 credit hours) in Explosive Engineering that is open to all majors. 

The minor programs are jointly administrated by the Mining Engineering Department (advisor: Dr. Petr) and the Metallurgical & Materials Engineering Department (advisor: Dr. Liu
