Create challenging and cutting edge computing career possibilities by earning a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science or Software Engineering.

Montana Tech professors are experienced in the industry and have broad academic interests. Low student-faculty ratio allows close interaction with these professors on real-world projects. Enjoy easy access to lab computers and state of the art equipment and development platforms (Sun Fire Server, NAO H25 humanoid robot programming, Android app development, iPad app development, and much more).

Students graduate with practical experience designing, building, testing and maintaining software systems. Graduates are in high demand. The department has maintained 100% placement in well paying positions for over 10 years. Check out the rest of our website to learn more about these ABET accredited programs.

Joseph Beaudry a junior in Computer Science completed his internship with The Department of Labor and Industry in Helena this past summer. Joseph worked for The Employment Relations Division which handles claims for unemployment and worker’s compensation. Joseph worked closely with the teams lead software developer to build software for their WCAN (Worker’s Compensation Administration Network) application used by state employees all across Montana for filing claims for unemployment and workers’ compensation. Joseph primarily work with Java, SQL and Oracle. Joseph’s main task for the summer was to build a newer version of the software’s automated wizards that are more user friendly and help the users process claims more efficiently. Joseph also helped design a new application for maintaining the users and their roles in the databases. This included meeting with lead software developers to come up with a design that worked for them along with writing the software, the requirements, and documentation.

He was able to use a lot of what I learned in his course work at Montana Tech to help develop and maintain new software systems. In 2015 after his freshman year Joseph received an email about an internship with the DLI from Tami. They were looking for an intern that had some experience in Java and He then sent in the resume that he made in Celia’s freshman seminar and was hired for the summer. When he finished his internship in 2015 they liked his work and hired him on as a temporary employee with great pay and full benefits.

Vernon Foley had a Software Engineer Intern position this summer at EchoStar in Englewood, CO. EchoStar is a Satellite Communications company that offers hardware and software to support to satellite television and telecommunication companies. EchoStar is developing an internal program that tracks their agile software development process and user stories. Vernon’s project was to work on finalizing some new features to help managers better estimate the timeline to implement new features. Due to software and server upgrades his project changed to upgrading to the latest version and merging the changes into the open source base product. The challenges presented in a software maintenance can be exhilarating and frustrating to say the least. The biggest challenge was finding the correct positions to place code when dealing with the changing software architecture. Working with the program required Vernon to learn and use Perl and CGI scripting to merge older in house changes into the new code. Most of the code that he used on the job was learned on the job. Knowing how to implement data structures and strong problem solving skills allows learning a new language to be much easier. Vernon’s favorite part of the Internship was being able to work with a tight knit team and accomplish his goals.
