The Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering (CAE) at Lawrence Tech. enjoys an excellent reputation with local employers for its excellent engineering program. With a strong emphasis on “Leadership through Theory and Practice” along with internship experience, our graduate engineers are known to hit the ground running with employers.
The department also houses the best teaching and research laboratories in Southeast Michigan with facilities such as the Center of Innovative Materials Research (CIMR), Structural Test Lab Center (STLC), the Great Lakes Stormwater Management Institute (GLSMI), Lighting-Electrical and Daylighting Lab, Hydraulics/Hydrology Lab, Environmental Lab, Civil Engineering Computer Lab, Geotechnical and Materials Lab.
One of the key strengths of our program is the small class size taught by active and engaged faculty, not teaching assistants. Another uniqueness of our program is the inclusion of problem base learning (PBL) and Active Collaborative Learning (ACL) with the participation of practicing engineers from local engineering firms as industrial mentors for project teams. These industry mentors are also potential future employers for our graduates.
From roads to bridges and water distribution systems to seawalls, civil engineers build and maintain the infrastructure upon which our economy thrives. Civil engineering is one of the top 10 careers for job growth, and LTU can prepare you to enter this vital profession like no other program in Michigan. You’ll explore the latest technologies in state-of-the-art labs, such as the Center for Innovative Materials Research, one of the most unique and advanced research facilities in the world. Guided by professors with international industry expertise, you can pursue studies in construction, environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation and water resources engineering.
