Lawrence Tech graduates its first class in transportation design

The first four graduates of Lawrence Tech’s bachelor’s degree program in
transportation design may just have received their diplomas, but
they’ve already begun putting their skills to work in the industry.

LTU’s degree program is brand-new, but it’s already recognized by
designschools.com as one of the top 8 programs nationwide for teaching
automotive design. And that’s helped the new grads all find jobs in
their final semesters at Volkswagen, Peugeot, Ford Motor Company and RTT
USA.

The degree program reflects Lawrence Tech’s signature “Theory and
Practice” approach to learning by combining in-depth conceptual
investigations with hands-on projects and extensive exposure to working
professionals. It draws on two disciplines, engineering and design, and
the new graduates have been prepared as designers who understand
automotive technology and how to communicate effectively with engineers.

“We’ve tried to make our program like a four-year apprenticeship,” said
Keith Nagara, director of the transportation design program at Lawrence
Tech.
