1986-1991, BS Engineering Science, MS Metallurgical Engineering
I credit the degree in the Engineering Science as the foundation for going to the next level: "What kind of engineer do I really want to be?". For me it was a path to Software Architecture, for my other friends it was a path to Petroleum, Nuclear, and other fields. Studies in Engineering Science trained me to think rapidly on my feet and to anticipate the unexpected. In the end for me, it really doesn't matter if the problem that needed to be solved was in software or metallurgy, it all came back to the fundamentals of engineering. Ironically, I do wish I had taken a bit more interest in software while I was at Tech, as that single Fortran class simply wasn't enough. Reflecting on the role of Software Architect which I am now, I still would have never traded my Engineering Science degree for a Computer Science one. I would have enhanced my ES degree with CS, but never the other way around.
2006-2008, MSEE, Power Systems
I have done my Masters in Electrical Engineering from Montana Tech. It gave me every opportunity to launch my career in the right direction. I was part of DOE smart grid research during my entire academic tenure that funded my tuition and provided me with assistantship. The compact size of it is what attracted me. Student can have frequent meets with professors for broadening their knowledge or to clear doubts which is commendable. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I strongly recommend Montana Tech to any prospective students.
1987-1993, BS, Occupational Safety and Health
Montana Tech provides a strong foundation for building a successful safety and health focused career. I would recommend Montana Tech's Occupational Health and Safety and Industrial Hygiene curriculum, as well as, considering their students for summer internships.
