Lawrence Technological University was one of the first universities in the United States to participate in the SAE® Collegiate Design competitions, recognizing the close fit with Lawrence Technological University’s motto of “Theory and Practice.”

LTU integrates the senior project with the competition teams, resulting in an eight-month period to design and build. Not all institutions do this. The benefit of this restricted time period is to reflect real-world deadlines and simulate engineering work situations.
