Mining Engineering
Invest in the Future of Mining Engineering at Montana Tech!

For over 120 years the Montana Tech Mining Department has produced mining engineers with a particular aptitude for practical application of what they learn, our engineers have a particular knack for getting rock in the box. An important part of that preparation is the industry learned and applied knowledge shared by talented faculty to better prepare them for life in industry after graduation. 

Montana Tech Mining Team Competition

That is why this year we have decided to raise funds for our Mining Engineering Department Fund and invest in the promotion of the department and creation of open source materials for our students, alumni, and industry.

During his sabbatical, Dr. Thomas Camm, along with Scott A. Stebbins, completed work on the publication "Simplified Cost Models For Underground Mine Evaluation: A Handbook for Quick Prefeasibility Cost Estimates." Dr. Camm decided to make the piece free and accessible to the public and to date, it is the top viewed creative work from the Montana Technological University Digital Commons with over 2,500 downloads.

Taking this as inspiration along with the knowledge and expertise available within the Mining Engineering Department at Montana Tech it is our goal to create multi-platform offerings of additional open-source materials that can be made available to the public at large, including our alumni, supporters, and industry partners.

By producing these materials we would also like to lessen student expenses by creating free and accessible texts for our Mining Engineering courses, eliminating the need for students to buy books. We want to develop platforms for a podcast and Mining Department blog to recruit future students as well promote our department and industry. And eventually, we feel this would enable us to offer non-credit short courses to our alumni and Mining colleagues.

The Mining Engineering field is one that is constantly evolving and that is exactly what we aim to do with the creation of open-source materials. During DayOne we invite you to invest in our vision with a gift to the Mining Engineering Department Fund.

Please consider making a gift today to Mining Engineering Department Fund to invest in the promotion of the department and creation of open source materials for our students, alumni, and industry. Your gift is an investment in Mining Engineering students at Montana Tech. 

During DayOne with thanks to Sonya and Scott Rosenthal all gifts to the Mining Engineering Department Fund will be matched 1:1 up to $1,000.
