Release Date: December 19, 2007

Southfield, Mich. – Lawrence Technological University will offer 10 degree programs at Lansing Community College (LCC) when classes begin at its new University Center Jan. 21. 

The 35,000-square-foot University Center will house instructional space, offices, meeting space and a student services center for six universities.

Students attending classes in Lansing can earn Lawrence Tech bachelor’s degrees in architecture, computer science, electrical engineering, engineering technology, information technology, mechanical engineering and psychology.

Graduate students can earn master’s degrees in computer science, educational technology and engineering management, as well as a certificate in energy and environmental management.

Lawrence Tech pioneered academic programming for part-time and adult students 75 years ago, and the University Center provides an opportunity to make degree programs much more accessible and convenient in mid-Michigan, according to Lisa Kujawa, assistant provost for enrollment at Lawrence Tech.

“The new University Center will provide Lansing-area students with more options as part-time adult learners, particularly at the master’s degree level,” Kujawa said. “We are delighted to make a distinctive Lawrence Tech education available to area residents, including state government staff. The University Center will provide a path to many exciting career choices.”

Lawrence Tech will be joined at LCC’s University Center by Ferris State University, Northwood University, Siena Heights University, the University of Michigan-Flint and Western Michigan University.
