With support and encouragement from the automotive industry, Lawrence Tech has created a unique Bachelor of Science in Transportation Design program that emphasizes the importance of engineering factors in automotive design. Director Keith Nagara, a former Ford designer who has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from LTU, has designed the degree program to simulate an industry studio environment.
