Montana Tech’s Freshman Engineering Program (FEP) is the entry point for every first-year engineering student.

Program Overview

The Freshman Engineering program enables incoming students with an interest in engineering to be exposed to a broad range of general disciplines in their freshman year.

All FEP students must complete a common curriculum their first semester. These first semester courses create a strong foundation for basic engineering and introduce the student to their selected engineering discipline. FEP students meet with advisors on a regular basis and are encouraged to interact with other FEP students through team projects and campus activities.

The Montana Tech Freshman Engineering program will:

  • Recruit, advise, teach, and retain students for Montana Tech’s School of Mines and Engineering.
  • Provide engineering students with the skills necessary to succeed in a Montana Tech Engineering Discipline.
