From Lawrence Technological University

With the guidance of Henry and Edsel Ford, Lawrence Technological University developed during an innovation explosion that would change the world. LTU is still changing the world by preparing students in colleges of Arts & Sciences, Architecture & Design, Business & IT, and Engineering to solve tomorrow’s problems. Students and alumni have gone on to design and engineer the tools, buildings, and products that helped define their generations. Tomorrow’s LTU students will do the same.

LTU provides students a "theory and practice" approach to learning. Applied research, industry partnerships, co-ops, and internships give students real-world preparation. Because of this, 92% of our students are employed or admitted to graduate school at graduation, and we have an 11% return on investment nationally according to PayScale.

With more than 50 student organizations, 30 NAIA varsity sports, band, dance team, and intramural sports, our students find ways to enjoy outside the classroom as well!

    What a place! The comfort and enjoyment I have attending this college is beyond measurable. One thing I enjoy the most about Lawrence Tech is how nice everyone is. If I'm lost or need assistance with anything, I always find someone to help. The proffesors are the best and the way they teach helps us students understand the material causing us to have little to no stress. The small class sizes gives us more of an opportunity to seek help from the proffesor without having to stay after school and talk to them during office hours. There isn't anywhere else I'd go and that just tells you how much I enjoy in here! I hope new students in the future experience the same positive outlooks Ive had here at Lawrence Tech!

    I have taken many online classes throughout my four years at LTU. I have learned that Professors are quite clear with what their requirements are for classes. They usually post most of the important grades, or homework assignment work on Canvas and then send announcements for the class throughout emails on google. I have learned so much about how the online classes are run and am glad that the professors are willing to help out in anyway that they can. Online classes typically are much harder than in-person classes due to the lack of engagement outside of class. There tends to be t a lot of use of technology due to the fact that everything is due online. The online classes that I took during Covid-19 have really challenged recently and have taught me how to bee the master of technology. I am quite glad that I have had the opportunity to take online classes during my college academic experience. The way that LTU has taught Online classes is truly exemplary.
    My experience at Lawrence Technological University has been one of the best! They have such a diverse campus, friends folks, lovely professors and even great food! It's so beautiful to walk the campus and see nothing but nature and hear nothing but peace. I would definetly recommend Ltu for anyone with a passion for engineering because their program is so amazing!
