Earth Science and Engineering PhD Program
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Earth Science and Engineering (ESE), builds on engineering and science BS and MS programs and the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology (MBMG).
Graduates will be positioned for numerous careers important to Montana, including energy/mineral development, geological/geophysical exploration, environmental consulting/protection, land/resource management, state and federal government, academia, and non-profits. Specialties take advantage of Montana Tech’s and MBMG’s distinctive strengths in Geological, Environmental, Petroleum, Mining, Mineral and Metallurgical Processing, and Hydrogeological Engineering, along with Geochemistry, Geophysics, Hydrogeology, and Economic Geology. This Ph.D. program and its focus areas build naturally on Montana Tech’s historic status as Montana’s School of Mines; its current designation by the Board of Regents as a special focus institution, focused on science, engineering, technology, and health; its long-standing constituency of extractive and natural-resource-focused stakeholders; and the continuing economic importance of such industries to Montana.
