Degrees and Programs
The General Engineering program at Montana Tech stresses professionalism and a solid fundamental engineering education. Students gain a broad training in science, mathematics, computers, and engineering, and are encouraged to select an area of specialization.
Specialization can be pursued through proper advising. Students are exposed to courses with laboratories that emphasize applied engineering concepts and modern design methods. The degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), which results in a Bachelor of Science degree in General Engineering.
Those who are interested in an advanced education can pursue the M.S. in General Engineering. The student must select a specialization option from Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Welding Engineering. The department offers many funded research projects under which students can pursue advanced research studies.
Civil Engineering: In addition to the general engineering core, this option offers the student a specialization in the civil engineering areas of foundations and structures and surface water hydrology and hydraulics. Civil engineering graduates work in construction, design roads, bridges and water treatment facilities.
