Mechanical Engineering

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 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 founds for Montana Tech SAE Baja Club


Montana Tech has been competing in the Baja SAE (Society Of Automotive Engineers) Collegiate Design Competition for the past 6 years. The team will be competing nationally against teams worldwide in the four events: acceleration, sled pull, maneuverability, and a four-hour endurance race. This year we will also compete in sales and marketing presentation and technical presentation as well.


In order to compete the team will design, build and fabricate a Baja buggy, that meets and exceeds the regulations required by SAE. To achieve this goal the team plans on improving on previous designs while enhancing designs that worked, all while reducing weight.


Fundraising is critical to making our design a reality. the entry fee, parts, materials and transportation to Kansas and back is estimated to cost approximately $25,000. Please consider making a fit today to the Montana Tech SAE Baja Club.
