"Avoid this place , there are many places with the same budget that are just better schools. This place focused on being a business way harder than being a school. If you try to transfer credits they will do everything in their power to have it not transfer so you can pay them. If you get a acceptance from another school and threaten to leave they will offer more credits to transfer. Its a game to them. I am sure the operation will shutdown soon. Too bad for the town which depends on university students to make their income aswell."

"Overall, Montana Tech is a great institution. I received my Associate's and Bachelor's degree there and recently returned to graduate school to work on a Master's. The faculty and staff are generally helpful, and most would go the extra mile for you."

"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"

"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."

"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."

"The graduate programs at Montana Tech greatly enhance the students ability to manage projects and complete tasks assigned. The opportunity to assist in teaching and supervisory roles is outstanding. The graduate programs really embrace responsibility as an individual and also amongst colleagues to provide the student with a great sense of pride and fulfillment while completing assignments."

"Pro-The Mining Engineering program is one of the best in the US. The school, faculty members and students are awesome. It is a good environment for healthy and successful study. Con- Butte is a small city and the weather is very hard specially for someone not used to the cold. No big stores except Walmart. No African store in the area."

"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
"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."
