The bachelor of science in Geophysical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
The mission of the of the Geophysical Engineering program at Montana Tech is
“to provide graduates of the program with a sound understanding of the theory and practice of geophysical methods based in geology and prepare them for entry into the exploration industry at the professional level.”
Graduates of the Geophysical Engineering program are expected to:
- Demonstrate an ability to apply engineering and scientific principles and techniques towards the practical application of geophysical methods.
- Demonstrate the skills necessary to enter the geophysical exploration industry, contribute at the professional level and be successful throughout their careers.
Graduates of the Geophysical Engineering Program will have demonstrated:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
- An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
- An understanding of professional ethical responsibility.
- An ability to communicate effectively.
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
- A knowledge of contemporary issues.
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
