Facilities & Research

Unlike other universities, Explosives Engineering students at Missouri S&T will gain crucial, hands-on expertise in the safe handling and utilization of explosives and explosive material. Research facilities include the university's Experimental Mine, Energetics Research Facility, Rock Mechanics Center, McNutt Hall, and Premier Pyrotechnics Inc. located in Richland, MO.

Students observe one of two blast chambers at the Explosives Research Facility. This chamber can contain an 8-pound detonation.
