From Montana Technological University

Montana Technological University is different from those bigger schools. You won’t get lost in a sea of faces here. In fact, with a little work, you’ll stand out.
Then you know who will see you? Dozens of top tier companies just waiting to pick from our next crop graduating Orediggers, that’s who.

But don’t let all the hands-on learning and personal attention fool you – Montana Tech isn’t one of those resource-strapped small schools either. We’re Montana’s only Special Focus STEM University. From engineering to healthcare, our faculty and facilities are top notch, and the research done here is changing lives.

Maybe best of all is our location, perched on a hill overlooking historic Butte, Montana’s festival city, with views to die for and outdoor recreation opportunities in literally every direction.

So get in touch. We’d love to learn about your goals and help you achieve them.

    Montana Tech provides multiple opportunities to not just learn inside the classroom, but to apply the concepts with hands on experiences. There are different paths students can take by completing research, various labs, and internships which allow the theories learned inside the classroom to be applied physically.

    At Montana Tech, there is a more personal connection with all the faculty and staff due to smaller class sizes and student population. Here, I felt that I was actually who I was rather than another number. The personal feeling made it easier for me to ask questions and allowed me to make connections with those working out in the field.

    Overall, Montana Tech has provided me with many experiences that have contributed to me receiving internships and a job before I have even graduated. The environment here has led me to my success and knowing I have support from those here has been a great help!

    Montana Tech is a great University! It is an awesome engineering school, and the small community creates an environment where you can get to know you professors and peers well, and truly excel. The community here is inviting and fun, and the professors care that students succeed. Butte is also a really fun town with lots of really interesting history!
    Montana Tech is a great school to attend to learn a lot without having to accumulate lots of student loan debt. The surrounding outdoors scene is very fun to explore. Due to the small class sizes, it is easy to get to know your professor on a personal level and to receive academic help. Getting involved in research on campus is usually pretty easy too!
