The College of Architecture and Design at Lawrence Technological University was created in 1989, having evolved from the School of Architecture, which was established in 1962. The College seeks to develop graduates committed to articulate and socially relevant design, creative inquiry and critical thinking as the basis for design insight, clear communication as a design objective, and professional leadership.
Lawrence Tech’s design programs provide aspiring design professionals with a comprehensive education and preparation for careers in design. The programs emphasize investigation and collaboration through courses that address relationships among the disciplines and approaches, including design, technology, the sciences, and the humanities. Students are expected to maintain high standards of excellence: they are highly respected by employers and win significant design competitions. LTU alumni practice and teach throughout the world and hold positions of responsibility in their practices.
