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.
