Electrical Engineering Departmental Scholarships, NASA Robotic Mining Club and IEEE

The demand for electrical engineers continues to grow, and Montana Technological University is ready to answer the call. Electrical engineering is the largest engineering discipline in the world, serving nearly every modern industry. Harnessing electricity for the benefit of humankind is the job of electrical engineers. They design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment. The job is extremely important, and in-demand since all information is conveyed using electricity as the delivery medium.

Montana Technological University faculty are passionate about helping students succeed in electrical engineering. Nearly all of our courses include a lab component taught by registered professional engineers who hold the highest degree in the field and at Montana Tech, all of our Electrical Engineering professors are registered professional engineers in the state of Montana.  
 
We are passionate about recruiting more students to study electrical engineering and making sure they receive an enriched education experience at Montana Tech. With this in mind, we ask you to join us during DayOne 2021 in supporting Electrical Engineering Scholarships, our NASA Robotics Mining Club, and our Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Student Club.

Scholarship dollars are imperative to support our students and grow our program. By making a gift to our Electrical Engineering Departmental Scholarships, we can help students reach their educational goals. Please consider giving today and investing in our students at Montana Tech. 

During DayOne 2021, thanks to an anonymous donor, each gift made to Electrical Engineering scholarships will be matched 1:1 up to $2,000.




The Montana Tech NASA Robotic Mining Club (NRMC) is a multi-disciplinary club, where the students work together to design and build a robot to compete at the NASA Robotic Mining Competition at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The competition consists of a robot being either remotely operated, or autonomously to move, dig, and dump as much of the simulated Martian surface from one end of the arena to the other in the allotted time. Please consider making a gift today to Montana Tech NASA Robotic Mining Club to support the students with funds to build the robot and for travel to the annual NASA Robotic Mining competitions.

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. The Montana Tech IEEE Student Club offers our students programs, activities, and professional networking opportunities that build critical skills outside of the classroom. A gift to the Montana Tech IEEE Student Club supports our students and gives them a better understanding of the real-world applications of the electrical engineering education they are receiving at Montana Tech.
