My best memory of LTU is the time I spent as a leader on the Baja SAE team. It was the year that they moved from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive and we had to do a complete re-design. It was laborious, but the team was committed. We believed we could do it and we did.

The faculty within the mechanical engineering program really want to see their students succeed. Many professors dedicate time outside of class to give additional help with coursework or provide academic and career advice. They push us to think critically about the engineering problems we encounter.

LTU’s mechanical engineering program is built around a core curriculum in manufacturing, mechanical systems, and thermal science. In this program, you will learn how products are designed, manufactured, and tested, as well as the basics of mechanisms and structures, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and energy conversion. You can choose from six concentrations: alternative energy, automotive, manufacturing, nanotechnology, solid mechanics, and thermal fluids, and can further augment your preparation by pursuing minors in aeronautical engineering or energy engineering. Since many consumer products are electromechanical in nature, a mechatronics sequence is also included.


  • Since Lawrence Tech has been educating successful engineers for nearly 90 years, you’ll graduate with the tools and knowledge you’ll need to create tomorrow’s great inventions
  • The curriculum emphasizes the development of strong analytic and problem-solving skills – making you highly valuable to employers
  • Dedicated, caring faculty will provide you with one-on-one attention and bring current industry experience as well as cutting-edge research to the classroom
  • You’ll experience Lawrence Tech’s signature theory and practice approach to learning through extensive laboratory work in LTU’s state-of-the-arts labs

My time at LTU has provided me with phenomenal experiences that have prepared me for my upcoming career. The combination of theory and practice within a small class setting has allowed me to explore my full potential within this field. LTU has opened many doors for me, and I am looking forward to applying my knowledge to post graduate life.

My experience at Lawrence Tech has been full of incredible opportunities, including being a part of the Blue Devil’s Motorsports program. Formula SAE has challenged me in ways I have never thought of before, allowing myself to think differently and become a better engineer. I truly appreciate the smaller class sizes, allowing for more one-on-one time with my professors.
