A question on engineering

  1. Jan 9, 2006 #1
    Is there any kind of "explosives engineering" such as those people who implode buildings and such? Or if not is it a combination of several types of engineering? Just a thought.

    I can't say for sure. A quick search on this kind of area doesn't reveal much information. I would venture a guess that there would be a distinct division in this area between the people who know building structures and determine where to plant explosives and those that work with the explosives. From an engineer's standpoint, I would think that a civil engineer who concentrates on buildings and structures would be the most appropriate for the first.

    "demolitons" is the word you want to Google - say, combined with Civil or Engineering.
