LAWRENCE TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY was born nearly 90 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. Here, we’re about “Theory and Practice” – taking abstract ideas into the real world to solve tomorrow’s problems. Our reputation comes as much from what we’re doing now as it does from our storied past.
If you’re a thinker, a visionary, a builder…if you’re curious…then you’re Lawrence Tech. Come roll up your sleeves and dive in at one of the nation’s best schools for engineering, architecture, science, and applied technology.
