Introduction

The School of Mines and Engineering is comprised of nine departments. The School of Mines traces its history back to 1895 when the Montana State School of Mines was established. The School of Mines opened in 1900 and the first class graduated in 1903. Until 1922, the School graduated only mining engineers, but these engineers had a broad background in mining, geology, metallurgy, and mineral processing. In 1922, separate degrees in Mining Engineering and Metallurgical Engineering were first offered. In 1930, Geological Engineering was added as a separate degree. Master’s degrees were first authorized in 1928.

Both bachelors and master’s degrees are granted in all programs in the School of Mines and Engineering. The engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET (http://www.abet.org) . The Industrial Hygiene degree is accredited by the ASAC commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org).

School of Mines and Engineering graduates have a sound science and engineering foundation, excellent design skills, and strong computer skills. The college prides itself in preparing engineers and scientists for immediate professional practice and in giving them the skills and knowledge needed to solve the problems of tomorrow. Job placements in summer internships are a major part of that process. A faculty of experienced and dedicated scientists and engineers and laboratories and classrooms equipped with the latest in technology complete the picture. The path blazed by the first 5,000 graduates of the college’s degree programs is an easy one to follow as it is wide and world renowned.
