Dear future engineering student,

The future is exceptionally bright for engineering students. There are grand challenges to be solved for the societies around the globe and you can be a part of a team that pursues these complex challenges. Some of these challenges as stated by the National Academy of Engineering are: making solar energy economical, enhancing virtual reality, engineering better medical solutions, restoring and improving infrastructure, providing clean water to billions of people, ensuring safety from hostile threats and providing energy from fusion. LeTourneau University engineering graduates have provided countless innovative solutions for clients, the public and government agencies around the world. LeTourneau University graduates of today and tomorrow will be poised to make major contributions to the grand challenges that future generations will face. 

Some key aspects of our programs that benefit our students directly are: over 85% of our faculty have real engineering experience in industry; our faculty have Ph.D. degrees from top universities like MIT, Texas, Texas A&M, Iowa State University; we are focused on teaching engineering; faculty are highly available to students; our faculty loves Christ; and students have hands-on experience, building and designing solutions, from the first semester to the last.

Our graduates are in high demand and readily have numerous employment and career opportunities prior to graduation. I am consistently asked by employers about available graduates. My reply is, "they are in high demand and your company will have to compete for them with all the others that desire to hire our graduates."

We would love for you to be a LeTourneau engineering student. Please come to campus and visit us.


Kind Regards,
