The International Society for Explosive Engineers (ISEE) is a tax-exempt professional body founded in 1974 to advance the science and art of explosives engineering.. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, it is the primary international organization for explosive engineers.

History

ISEE was founded in Pittsburgh in 1974, when a small group of explosive engineers came together to discuss how to advance the science and art of explosive engineering. Since then the ISEE has grown to over 4000 members with 43 local chapters.[1]

Publications

The ISEE has 2 primary peer reviewed publications, and an industry handbook.[2]

Journals

  • Journal of Explosives Engineering
  • Blasting and Fragmentation Journal

Books

  • Blasters' Handbook, 18th Edition

Conferences and education

Each year more than 1500 blasters,[3] manufacturers, government officials and industry leaders, come together for an annual conference. The Blasters Weekend is a preconference event targeted at field personnel focusing on more practical knowledge and skills. The main conference is 3 days of technical papers and presentations. Both conference events qualify for continuing education units (CEUs) and/or professional development hours (PDHs) for most states licensing programs.
