Overview

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.

Terra Miller Interned at DISH Technologies

Terra Miller, a senior in the Computer Science program recently completed a software engineering internship at DISH Technologies, formerly known as EchoStar, in Denver this past summer. Terra worked closely with a software and embedded team to complete her project for the summer. Her project goal was to create an Android app capable of taking streaming data from a set-top box and display it onto a TV using an Android device. Terra was able to learn many new skills including developing with Android Studio, developing on a Ubuntu box, and learning about TV Input Framework. Terra worked with the Java language primarily but also sporadically used the JSON language.

Even though she had to learn many new skills while doing her internship, Terra was able to use the problem solving skills and technical learning skills she acquired from doing course work at Montana Tech. The biggest challenge during the internship was learning new skills and then having to immediately use these new skills while still under pressure to complete the project on time.

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.
