Montana Tech Department of Geological Engineering
Montana Tech's Department of Geological Engineering offers a bachelor's degree, three master's degrees (each with at least several options), graduate and undergraduate drone certificates, and Ph.D. in Earth Science and Engineering. Our campus is home to the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology. Programs allow students to specialize the areas of geotechnical, geophysics, hydrogeology, mining, or petroleum.
Specialize in geotechnical, geophysics, hydrogeology, mining, or petroleum.
Students in other majors can specialize in groundwater in a minor program that will give you knowledge and experience modeling one of the earth's limited resources.
Become a licensed drone pilot and learn how to model and interpret data collected in flight.
Go further in the field of Geological Engineering. Options include geotechnical and hydrogeological engineering.
The Geoscience, M.S. allows you to focus on geochemistry, geology, geophysics, and/or hydrogeology. One of our unique specializations is economic geology
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Earth Science and Engineering (ESE), integrates engineering and science and focuses on applications.
The Master of Engineering is a course-work based degree. Our department houses the geological, geophysical, geotechnical, and hydrogeological engineering options.
