4 College Freshman

Academics: Montana Tech has some of the best engineering programs in the country. If you're looking for an engineering degree, its the place to be. Other than that, there is not much left. If you run into someone on campus that is not some type of engineer it is a treat.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Montana Tech is mainly an engineering school. It has a huge petroleum engineering influence, as seen by the new petroleum building on campus. There are also geological engineering, mining engineering, and civil and mechanical engineering. The curriculum for engineering is the usual math, science, chemistry, and core engineering classes, then after this each course branches off into more specialized classes for each major. The workload is tough. Chemistry is the weed out class that gets a lot of freshman. The library is usually full of students. The first floor of the library usually full of people talking, and the second floor silent with people working by themselves.

4 College Student

Academics: There is a wide variety of degrees for someone to pursue. Montana Tech offers 2 and 4 year degrees.

4 College Senior

Academics: Montana Tech is a well-regarded engineering school and there are regular visits from recruiters, especially those seeking petroleum and geological engineers. Beyond the general engineering courses at the lower division level, class sizes are very small once you're into your upper division. Professors teach courses, not teaching assistants, and these professors really do want you to excel and succeed. People who graduate from Tech have jobs before they graduate.
