Why study engineering at LeTourneau University?
- Christ-centered instruction:
At LeTourneau we are serious about being engineers for the Kingdom of God. God is the ultimate Creator and Sustainer of the universe. All of our faculty members are committed followers of Christ who integrate their Christian worldview into their classes. Most classes are small, and faculty-student interaction is encouraged.
- Interdisciplinary curriculum:
The engineering curriculum at LeTourneau is a general engineering degree with specific concentrations in biomedical, computer, electrical, materials joining, and mechanical. That means you will build specialty courses on top of a strong core foundation, and that senior projects will involve multiple disciplines, much like you’ll encounter in industry.
- Practical emphasis:
LeTourneau has traditionally been known as a “hands-on,” practical, project-oriented school. Projects are involved in many of the classes, from freshman to senior year. The new design curriculum builds on design skills from year to year.
- International emphasis
In addition to American schools, our faculty members have studied in Romania, Korea, Honduras, and Australia, bringing an international flavor to our program. Students have the opportunity to work on projects for developing nations, to minister over spring break on construction projects in Mexico, and to attend for a semester at Handong Global University in Korea.
- Unique opportunities:
LeTourneau offers the possibility of such opportunities as
- hands-on work with state-of-the art equipment, including welding robots, industrial robots, a biomechanical gait lab, and scanning electron microscope
- undergraduate research alongside nationally known research engineers
- internships at major corporations
- development of a student-designed prosthetic leg for international use and testing
- Tradition of student success:
LeTourneau students have a long history of excellence in engineering competitions, in their pass rate on the Fundamentals of Engineering (F.E.) exam, in their employment statistics, in their entrance into grad schools, and in their career paths.
