Mechanical Engineering
Senior Design and Student Fellowships

Mechanical engineering plays a critical role in our society, from cars to airplanes to healthcare and beyond. Mechanical Engineering at Montana Tech offers two options. Our B.S. in Mechanical Engineering that prepares the graduate for jobs in the broad field of mechanical engineering including nanotechnology, power production and use, equipment design, manufacturing, mechanical system design, mechatronics and maintenance, while the  B.S. in Mechanical Engineering with a Welding Option offers a sound education in welding processes, codes and standards requirements, nondestructive examination and welding metallurgy. With only 75 Welding Engineering graduates in the U.S. each year, this option offers exceptional job placement.



We believe in providing hands on experiences for our students and in this spirit we are raising funds for Senior Design and Student Fellowships.


Senior Design provides students with a simulated real world experience with deadlines and deliverables for engineering designs. More than just a class or assignment, Senior Design projects are product/need focused through student clubs and through private industry. Students will apply for the projects similar to a job and will be chosen by the project advisor/mentor. Industry sponsors have the opportunity during the project to meet and work with possible future employees and students will obtain a view into possible industry careers.


Additional educational and work experience opportunities will be available for Mechanical Engineering undergraduate and graduate students through Fellowships. Student awardees will be chosen by the departmental faculty based on a competitive basis and will provide recognition for selected students and help ease the burden of educational expenses.


Fundraising is critical to supporting our Mechanical Engineering students and the areas of Senior Design and Student Fellowships.
