Educational Resources

Potential Students

The Center for Advanced Mineral and Metallurgical Processing (CAMP) actively seeks graduate students to complete their Master's of Science degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.

The Center offers students the opportunity to advance their career by doing research on new and emerging technologies within the mining and metallurgical educational fields.

The Center currently has several research initiatives. Prospective students can acquire a Ph.D. in Materials Science or Master’s degrees in a range of disciplines, including but not limited to Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, General Engineering (Mechanical Option), Electrical Engineering, Geosciences, Environmental Engineering or Mining Engineering. Students with undergraduate degrees in these disciplines or other fields, such as biological sciences, chemistry, physics, or other specialties in engineering, can do their thesis or dissertation research in CAMP. In addition, graduate students at Montana Tech have the opportunity to participate in international collaborations or thesis abroad experiences as part of their research.
