Montana Tech Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering
Metallurgical and Materials Engineering is a diverse and interesting specialty that impacts nearly every facet of our economy. Montana Tech offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Metallurgical & Materials Engineering, B.S., Master of Science degrees in Materials Science and Engineering and in Metallurgical and Mineral Processing Engineering, and doctoral degree (Ph.D) in Materials Science.
Start your career with a bachelor's degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.
This doctoral program concentrates on four overlapping and interacting areas, which are important to Montana's economic interests: biomaterials; materials for energy storage, conversion and conservation; electronic, photonic, and magnetic (EPM) materials; and materials synthesis, processing and fabrication.
The M.S. Degree in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) program has a distinct interdisciplinary culture that provides students with the depth and breadth of knowledge that leads to successful careers in fields such as aerospace, automotive, biomaterials, chemicals, electronics, energy, metals, and telecommunications.
Metallurgical/Mineral Processing Engineering deals with all aspects of metal and non-metal processing and manufacturing. Mineral processing engineers have the responsibility of accepting ore mined from the earth, comminuting the ore until liberation occurs, and then removing the valuable minerals in the form of concentrates.
