Student & Graduate Reviews (5)

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 0

It was a small school around 2000 students. The teachers were very personable. There wasn't as many activities going around campus as I would like

Degree: Geological and Earth Sciences/Geosciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

Good people. Great education for a comparatively small price and very helpful professors! Mainly an engineering school with challenging, but doable classes. Lots of activities/clubs to get involved with.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 1981

This is a small science and engineering school with a low student to teacher ratio. Because of the small student population, there are many opportunities to have one-on-one time with the professors. The teaching is practical and applicable to the industries represented. The job placement upon graduation is 98%. Internships are readily available. Scholarships are readily available.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2005

My experience at Tech was great. Our program was relatively small, which resulted in a lot of one-on-one time with professors and more focused studies.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2004

I'm one of the few professionals with a Bachelor of SCIENCE in Liberal Studies. I originally aimed at a Computer Science degree from one of the top Engineering schools in MT, but I found the Liberal Studies department to be surprisingly rich and more to my interests. I received a healthy dose of math and science (most Liberal Arts graduates can't boast Calc III and multiple semesters of Physics on their transcripts). Overall, I'd say I received the most liberal education because of my blend of engineering and arts, but in terms of terminal credentials, simply having a degree served the most utility. As an institution, MT Tech is a bargain and if you are looking to become an engineer--particularly a Petroleum Engineer or Geologist--you can't aim much higher. The focus is pretty firmly on academics, but there is still a solid "collegiate" environment (complete with sports and intramural activities). Tech is a smaller school, so you'll know all your classmates and professors will know upper classmen by first name. The campus is perched at the top of a hill overlooking Butte, America. Butte is easily one of the best kept secrets and underrated towns in the country. On the surface, it seems like a blight scarring the earth. The Berkeley Pit conjures images of a dusty wasteland as mining replaced natural majesty with eyesore. In reality, the town is a monument to survival and authenticity. The people seem hard, but they are genuine and salt of the earth. Butte is one of the few cities to take pride in preserving its blend of history, character, and beauty. It welcomes those who accept it as home. BOTTOM LINE: Great town, respectable academic reputation, and unbeatable bargain.
