Research Centers
Advanced Materials

The Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) was founded in 1989 and focuses on analytical laboratory testing, materials laboratory testing, and research program management.

Environmental Remediation

The Center for Environmental Remediation and Assessment (CERA) oversees environmental solutions that aid in responsible natural resource use, development, closure and reuse.

Mining and Geology

The Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology (MBMG) geoscientists collect, interpret, and distribute geologic data used to manage Montana’s water, land, mineral, and energy resources, and to assess geologic hazards.

Shared Use Research Facilities
Analytical Testing Laboratory

The Analytical Testing Laboratory provides a diverse spectrum of analytical services focused on high resolution imaging, elemental analysis, microcrystalline phase analysis and automated mineralogy, including modal mineralogy, mineral liberation, mineral associations and grain size analysis.

Electron Microscopy Laboratory

The Electron Microscopy Laboratory (E.M.Tech) within the Department of Biological Sciences at Montana Tech operates a Hitachi HT7820 transmission electron microscope (TEM) with scanning transmission electron microscopy and is equipped with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) capability.

Geology Triaxial Testing Lab

Our geological engineering department is home to state-of-the-art facilities including a triaxial testing lab.

High Performance Supercomputer

The High Performance Computer (HPC) Cluster, is a high-powered supercomputer that helps drive research and innovation at Montana Tech. Parallel computing powers greatly reduce the amount of processing time required for large amounts of data.
