What Sets Us Apart

LeTourneau's faculty and staff do more than say they are Christians; they live a lifestyle that encourages students to know Jesus Christ. Our faculty members are experts in their fields, who form and seek to develop strong, personal relationships with their students.


Engineering that Breaks Guinness World Records

LETU Engineering students set the Guinness World Record for most 3D printers operating in one room simultaneously. The best part? Each 3D printer was built by a freshman engineering student.


Award-winning Student Teachers

LETU Teacher Education students have earned the title of Texas Student Teacher of the Year five times, with back-to-back wins in 2013 and 2014 by Christian Driver and Carly Robinson.

Recent Winners include:

  • 2014 - Carly Robinson
  • 2013 - Christian Driver
  • 2010 - Matthew Bradley

In the past decade, LETU has produced more classroom teachers than any other private university in the state of Texas. Our students have a 99 percent pass rate on the Texas state-mandated exam for teacher certification.


Advanced Aviation

Partnerships with Major Airlines

LETU's Aviation & Aeronautical Science Program has teamed up with Envoy and SkyWest Airlines to offer qualifying Professional Flight students, putting them on the fast-track to rewarding careers in commercial aviation.


Loening Trophy Winners

LETU's Aviation was named the best all-around college aviation program in the nation when it was awarded the Loening Trophy, the rarest of all collegiate aviation honors.


World-class Computer Science

Last year, LETU Computer Science majors Micah Shennum, Terry Penner, and Daniel Rothfus traveled to Moscow, Russia to compete in the International Collegiate Programming Competition World Finals.

The ICPC doesn't distinguish between schools with undergraduate and graduate programs, which added an extra challenge for LETU's all-undergraduate team.

"LETU is the only undergraduate school in our region that has sent teams to the World Finals since 1993, when a team from Abilene Christian University was invited," said Dr. Brent Baas, the team's faculty sponsor.



LeTourneau University is consistently ranked in the
Top Tier of Master's/Comprehensive Universities among
"America's Best Colleges" by U.S. News and World Report.



Our average entering SAT scores are over 150 points higher than the national average.



Our grads get jobs. Our three-year average placement rate for all LETU graduates is 89 percent, with even higher rates for aeronautical science, engineering and business students.
