Course description

This course meets the requirements of the Level 7 Explosives Ordnance Engineering Master's Apprenticeship Standard. Eligible organisations will be able to use their Apprenticeship Levy to cover the cost of the course tuition fees. View Fees and Funding information, or find out more about Master's Apprenticeships.

We see, hear and use thousands of explosives around the world every day, from the military and defence sector to mining and other industrial operations. This means the requirement for expertise in explosives and their engineering is crucial. 

The Explosives Ordnance MSc Apprenticeship will teach you the necessary understanding behind explosive engineering, munitions and target response and look to the future in explosives development. 

Apprenticeship MSc will be awarded on successful completion of several compulsory modules that total 200 credits. 

The course offers advanced academic background necessary for students to contribute effectively to technically demanding projects in the field of explosives and explosives ordnance engineering (EOE).
