You can get tech from multiple MMs in one year. Each is treated as a seperate event. The only problem is that each one gives less then the next one, and I think the order of meeting them would be by the order that they appeared in the galaxy. So if you can give 10k to one and 5k to the other, make sure you give 10k to the first one. Also if they're both giving the same item, the second one will give some other random thing.
There are breakpoints at every 12 tech levels starting at 60 where it drops from 6 to 5 and finishing at 108 where it drops from 2 to 1. Up to 95 levels you get 1 extra tech field for every 1200kt, for 96 levels and above you don't get any. You should try and keep keep your first MT visit so it doesn't take you over one of the breakpoints, if both will then your better off giving the highest amount to the first MT, if the lower amount keeps you under a breakpoint then you are better giving the lower amount to the first MT. If giving neither of them first takes you over a breakpoint then it doesn't matter.
Resources you've already put into various fields can get switched between different fields so it is possible that you could increase by 1 or 2 levels more than you expect so if the first MT is likely to take you upto around 93 levels or above you are probably better giving the larger shipment first just in case the smaller one and research switching takes you to 96.
The 96 level breakpoint where you don't get anything for any extra levels is definitely one to watch out for, it would be really annoying knowing that the extra 4800kt you gave was completely wasted.
