The Analytical Testing Laboratory provides a diverse spectrum of analytical services.
The Materials Testing Laboratory offers mechanical testing, mineral processing and metallography.
CAMP focuses on winning and maintaining competitive research and development proposals.

The Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) is a Montana University System designated Center of Excellence in Research & Education.

 

Mission

Established in 1989, CAMP’s Mission is to serve the needs of Montana’s people and industries through cutting-edge research and effective research management in materials science and engineering, expanding both basic and applied knowledge in these fields.

Vision

The mission is designed to enable CAMP to realize it's vision: to be recognized as a preeminent Center of Excellence in materials science and engineering, in demand as the preferred provider of research and development in its fields, while both capitalizing on and seamlessly integrating its activities with Montana Tech’s faculty, students, and departments.

Montana Technological University

The Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) is a unit of Montana Technological University’s Research Office. CAMP’s full-time Director reports directly to the Vice Chancellor for Research.  CAMP’s activities involve three components:

  • Materials Testing Laboratory, led by a full-time laboratory director
  • Analytical Testing Laboratory, led by a full-time laboratory director
  • Research Program Management, including visiting researcher support, led by the CAMP director

Both laboratory components are involved in workforce development activities through mentoring and supervision of students participating in CAMP’s apprenticeship program.

CAMP carries out it's mission by:

  • Supporting the research, materials testing and analytical instrumentation needs of faculty across the Montana University System by providing the trained personnel and advanced instrumentation required to carry out sophisticated materials science research
  • Providing similar support using CAMP’s excellent facilities and sophisticated instrumentation as a service to industrial, government and non-Montana university clients for reasonable fees
  • Employing undergraduate and graduate students in a mentored apprenticeship program designed to promote workforce development in materials science and engineering
  • Assisting Montana Tech faculty in developing competitive research and development proposals that include the latest materials testing and analysis capabilities available
  • Providing Montana Tech departments with the ability to support visiting scientists and other research personnel
  • Acting as a single point-of-contact for companies desiring to partner with Montana Tech faculty across multiple departments, thus serving as a “Gateway to Montana Tech”
  • Providing the capability and experience to effectively manage large, multiple project research programs while maintaining schedules, milestones and deliverables
