BUTTE – Montana Tech in Butte has decided on a new name.

College officials have agreed to a recommendation to change Tech’s formal name to Montana Technological University. The recommendation was made by a group the university started last year to help refocus the Butte university’s image.

Montana Tech will present the name change at the next Montana Board of Regents meeting on May 23 in Havre for approval.
