Research and Graduate Studies

A Master of Science in Electrical Engineering provides outstanding career opportunities!

Take advanced classes and do research in the areas of electric energy and power, automation and control systems, signal processing, and instrumentation. Other areas of emphasis may be tailored your goals.

Montana Tech's Electrical Engineering faculty have an outstanding track record in attracting industry and government funded research projects. Graduate students work on these projects to solve many challenging real-life engineering problems. Recent funded graduate research projects include:

  • Development of a battery diagnostic instrumentation system for NASA for next-generation hybrid and electric vehicles. Several students worked closely with researchers from the Idaho National Laboratory.
  • Development of blade pitching control algorithms to improve the efficiency of wind turbines. Many of the concepts are now used in industry.
  • Researching new control schemes for improving and performance and preventing blackouts in large power grids. Students work closely with other universities, industry, and researchers from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
  • Working with researchers at the Idaho National Laboratory, students are designing and implementing an instrumentation and control system for minewaste remediation.

Both thesis and non-thesis options are available in Electrical Engineering. Graduate fellowships, teaching assistantships, fee waivers, and research assistantships are available.
