Why Study in Louisiana Tech University

When arriving on the Tech campus, it does not take one long to see that this is a very special place. From the Lady of the Mist in the Quad, one can glimpse back to a time when the rich tradition of academic excellence was first established by Tech’s founders in 1894. Our students take paths that lead them to traditional yet innovative academic programs in engineering, business, science, education, and liberal arts. Some of these paths lead to unique and nationally-recognized programs in nanosystems and cyber engineering, supply chain management, health informatics, and innovative venture research. Here, students engage in signature programs in forestry, agriculture, psychology, aviation, and architecture. Institutional excellence extends from the heart of the Tech campus to its outer most reaches.

At one edge of the campus are outstanding intercollegiate athletics and intramural sports facilities, integrated with campus housing and activities focused on student development and wellness. At another edge are premier research facilities and an Enterprise Campus where companies, faculty, and students partner in discovery, innovation, and practical training.

Our culture of caring and excellence is a very real part of our campus environment and can be felt upon the first interaction with our faculty, staff, or students. Our students are bright, articulate and committed to serving others through engagement in various activities, thus further contributing to their emergence as leaders upon graduation who can impact every sector of society. It’s one thing to talk about it, but another entirely to experience it. I invite you to learn more about our institution and to experience the very special place that is Louisiana Tech University.
