About

The Geological Engineering program of Montana Technological University requires that the student have an engineering background and allows specialization in several areas of Geological Engineering.

Overview

Students in related non-engineering fields who have a strong background in mathematics and physics may be admitted to the option on a provisional basis. At a minimum, such students must successfully complete undergraduate-level engineering coursework in statics, mechanics of materials, geomechanics, and engineering economy.

The final examination for thesis and publishable paper-option of the Geological Engineering program of Montana Technological University will consist of an oral presentation and defense of thesis or paper. Questions may be asked on any topic related to the thesis/paper or course work taken as part of the graduate program. The presentation will be open to all interested parties, but the defense will be open only to the student’s graduate committee.

The final examination for non-thesis option students will consist of a written and/or oral examination formulated by the student’s graduate committee. The oral examination will draw questions from the written examination plus any course work undertaken as part of the graduate program.

Students who are not already certified as an Engineer-In-Training are required to take the national Fundamentals of Engineering examination.
