Montana Tech is located along the continental divide in western Montana, an area noted for its outdoor recreation and scenic beauty. The department offers ABET-accredited BS and MS degrees in General Engineering with formal degree options in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Welding Engineering. All undergraduates are required to complete a core engineering science base and then may ...focus elective courses on one of the degree options. Graduates in these options are highly sought after for their knowledge, work ethic, and “hands-on” approach.
In this episode, Chris Knutson, PE interviews Nader Mowlaee on how to create a winning strategy to build a successful engineering career. They hit on why, and how, to establish your own personal brand and they also dive into core skills development and their importance to engineers, as well as the importance of building and cultivating a […]
