Originally chartered as The Montana State School of Mines, Montana Technological University (Montana Tech) has evolved into a dynamic institution which connects focused students to a network of people, opportunities, and experiences that empower them to change the world.

Along with world-class offerings in resource engineering, Montana Tech offers programs in other areas of engineering, the sciences, mathematics, computation, health, business. We offer certificate programs, associate, bachelor, and master’s degrees along with doctoral degrees in Materials Science and Earth Science & Engineering.
