Metallurgical & Materials Engineering
Invest in the growth of the Metallurgical & Materials Engineering Department at Montana Tech!

 

The Montana School of Mines began offering degrees in Metallurgical Engineering in 1922 and, ever since, the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department  has enjoyed an enormously positive world-wide reputation for the quality of education our students receive. Students learn how to process ores, separate valuable minerals into concentrates, produce and purify metals, manufacture metals into products, and create new materials. Industry seeks and hires our graduates because of their training and work ethic, which are developed and honed through classroom instruction, hands-on laboratories, and internships. Each year, 100% of our graduates are either placed in high-paying, responsible positions or choose to continue their education by pursuing graduate degrees.
 

 

The Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department will celebrate its 100th Anniversary in 2022. The Centennial Event—Celebrating Our Past and Securing Our Future— will be held in Butte September 27 through October 1, 2022. The Celebration will include technical sessions, student poster sessions, workshops (Bladesmithing and Fire Assay), and several social events. We are expecting a huge turnout by alumni and friends of the Department, so please mark the dates on your calendar. We will send more detailed information later this year.

While we celebrate our history, we are looking to the future. To this end, members of our esteemed Industrial Advisory Board have created the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department Endowment. We intend that the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department Endowment grow and provide funds in perpetuity to support the department, recruit students, promote Metallurgy and Materials engineering to future generations, and secure the future of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at Montana Technological University.

Please join us during DayOne by investing in the growth and outreach of the Metallurgical & Materials Engineering Department at Montana Tech by making a gift today to grow the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department Endowment. and with it our enrollment. 

During DayOne, thanks to members of the MET and Materials Industry Advisory Board, each gift made to the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department Endowment will be matched 1:1 up to $5,500. 

Thank you for your support and please help us spread the word! Share this project on social media, by email and tell your friends!
