Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering, M.S.

Department Overview

A Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering provides outstanding career opportunities.  Montana Tech’s program offers graduate courses and research projects in the areas of electric energy and power, automation and control systems, signal processing, and instrumentation. Other areas of emphasis may be tailored to the students' needs.

Montana Tech’s Electrical Engineering faculty have an excellent track record in attracting research projects funded by industry and government.  The projects provide students the opportunity to solve many challenging real-life engineering problems. Recent funded graduate research projects include:

  • Development of a battery diagnostic instrumentation system for NASA for next-generation hybrid and electric vehicles. Several students worked closely with researchers from the Idaho National Laboratory.
  • Development of blade pitching control algorithms to improve the efficiency of wind turbines. Many of the concepts are now used in industry.
  • Researching new control schemes for improving performance and preventing blackouts in large power grids. Students work closely with other universities, industry, and researchers from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • Working with researchers at the Idaho National Laboratory, students are designing and implementing an instrumentation and control system for mine-waste remediation.
