About

This rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of the Environmental Engineering program of Montana Technological University allows students to pursue their area of environmental interest.

Overview

Generally research projects at Montana Tech relate to the environmental challenges facing the minerals industry. However, the research results and coursework have general application to the solution of environmental engineering problems worldwide.

There are opportunities for graduate research in the areas of air, water quality and pollution control; hazardous waste minimization, treatment, and control; and waste cleanup. Specific areas of current research include the water chemistry of heavy metals, and hazardous organics; ground and surface water modeling; air emission inventories; biosorption of heavy metals; wetland research, land reclamation, atmospheric diffusion processes; and cleanup of "RCRA" and "super-fund" sites.

Admission generally requires a B.S. in an engineering field. Students from science backgrounds are also encouraged to apply with the understanding that a background "engineering core" will become part of the overall graduate program. A research thesis is required.

Placement

Majors of the Environmental Engineering program of Montana Technological University generally have the opportunity to obtain work experience prior to graduation. Companies such as Phelps Dodge, Kennecott, Marathon Oil, ARCO, EG&G Idaho, Carter Mining, Envirocon, Special Resource Management, and others hire our students during the summer. In these jobs, students work with professionals in challenging and stimulating situations while following an individualized course of study.

Career opportunities for graduates in Environmental Engineering are expanding rapidly. National concerns such as cleanup and disposal of hazardous wastes, air toxins, indoor air quality, ground water contamination, and reclamation of disturbed lands are contributing to the growth in environmental engineering careers. Past placement of graduates has been 100 percent.
