Lawrence Technological University was born 85 years ago in the middle of an innovation explosion that would change the world. None other than Henry and Edsel Ford helped launch the revolutionary experiment that would become LTU, providing guidance and space in their sprawling former Model T assembly plant for the fledgling school. Today, we’re still changing the world. Since those early beginnings students and alumni have gone on to design and engineer the tools, buildings, and products that helped define their generations. And tomorrow’s LTU students will do the same.
To develop innovative and agile leaders through a student-centric learning environment and applied research embracing theory and practice.
One of the nation's premier private colleges specializing in engineering, architecture, science and applied technology, Lawrence Technological University (Southfield, MI) offers 4,500 students a relevant education in a supportive community dedicated to their success.
Popular majors among the over 100 technology-infused programs include architecture, biomedical engineering, civil and mechanical engineering, computer science, interior design, molecular and cell biology and robotics.
Students benefit from small classes (11:1 student/faculty ratio) and knowledgeable professors committed to providing a real-world education from day one. LTU's problem-based "theory and practice" approach to learning challenges students to solve problems collaboratively instead of simply absorbing information in a lecture.
All undergraduates receive a "lab in a laptop" - fully loaded with the most current industry software. Students participate in internships, co-ops, applied research and study and work abroad. The University's location in Oakland County (MI) gives students access to one of the nation's wealthiest areas and hundreds of Fortune 500 and international companies.
A dynamic campus life rounds out the experience for a student body that represents 28 states and 43 nations. LTU offers opportunities to join more than 60 student groups, 11 fraternities and sororities and a growing athletics program that includes NAIA, ACHA, intramural and club sports.
