What type of engineering involves design of firearms and/or missiles?
firearms in general - mechanical, electrical and chemical in R&D fields in the design of new types of firearms, that do not rely on the bullet for all the energy in the system. (more for experenced engineers)
missiles- mechanical, electrical, chemical a lot goes into a missile, guidance systems, physical bom shell, the explosive.
A few words of advice
1) dont do anything stupi* in college, because to get into the design of these systems requires work with the military which means a security clearance, and for missiles it will be a high level.
2) make sure you know why you want to design these systems, Its not that glamorous sitting in a cubicle 8-12 hrs a day primarily doing paper work and meetings where you need to constantly defend your design.
3) I would recommend learning more about the engineering disciplines, and pick something that interests you
