Majors & Concentrations

Engineering represents excellence at LeTourneau, and the inventive and entrepreneurial spirit of our founder, the late R.G. LeTourneau, continues today. The engineering / engineering technology programs continue to emphasize the strong technical tradition, built upon Christian values, that has been a hallmark of LeTourneau University since its founding. 

The programs provide the educational background for professional employment or for graduate study.


Engineering Undergraduate Programs

LETU's Engineering and Engineering Technology programs provide you a broad interdisciplinary background with plenty of hands-on experience in your choice of a variety of concentrations and degree options.  Whichever program you choose, you'll be getting the top-quality, Christian education that LeTourneau has become known for.



Engineering Graduate Programs

We offer two different Master's-level engineering degrees: one that includes a research-based thesis, and one that doesn't.  Both build on LeTourneau's decades-long legacy of integrating faith with technical theory and hands-on experience in a world-class program.

If you don't already have your Bachelor's degree, consider this: qualified currently enrolled students can receive dual credit (counting towards both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements) for some senior-level courses, allowing the potential to complete both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in five years!

In general, Engineering includes more theory, and Engineering Technology is more applied. Students tend to gravitate towards one or the other. Engineering concentrations require two or three calculus courses plus differential equations. Engineering Technology requires two technical calculus courses and depends heavily on algebra skills.
LeTourneau's Engineering and Engineering Technology programs are classified, respectively, as a General Engineering program and General Engineering Technology program, meaning that we provide a strong common core of courses under a single degree, supported by a variety of concentrations. This structure allows us the greatest flexibility, interdisciplinary background, and sharing of faculty and resources. The degree title is not an obstacle to employment, and many employers are particularly impressed by the broad background of LeTourneau graduates.
