The Institute of Demolition Engineers (IDE) has recently been represented at two events organised and hosted by the Wolverhampton University Faculty of Science and Engineering in partnership with Environment Technologies and Resource Efficiency Support Service (EnTRESS).

On Friday 29th June 2018 “This is Demolition” was held at Wolverhampton University ECMS Springfield Campus.  Dr Paul Hampton (Head of the Built Environment, University of Wolverhampton) introduced the event.

The event was well attended by over 70 delegates interested in learning more about Demolition and the two new degree courses currently available: The Foundation Degree in Demolition Management and the current MSc Demolition Management.

University of Wolverhamptons Jackie Dunne (Deputy Vice-Chancellor Access & Lifelong Learning) and IDE President, David Darsey FIDE, FRSA signed the agreement for the new ground-breaking Foundation Degree.

On Saturday the 7th July 2018 the sun was shining in the courtyard at Wolverhampton University for the annual “Scifest” event.  The day was extremely well attended by young people and their families.  The IDE was again represented by IDE Council of Management member Richard Dolman FIDE at the Education Day.  Richard was able to pass on his passion for all things Demolition to the next generation.  The Demolition Simulator was a great hit with the young people attending and some of the Mums and Dads! A great atmospher topped off with a great result for the England Football team.
