Creating a greener future
LTU has been a part of the technological revolution for over 85 years, in addition to being at the forefront of the green revolution. From sustainable engineering, architecture, and construction to chemistry and biology, students are combining theory and practice with "green" technology and designing everything from earth-friendly transportation to energy-efficient homes.
Even Lawrence Tech's campus is "green." The A. Alfred Taubman Student Services Center is an innovative 42,000-square-foot building that uses many energy-efficient and environmentally friendly features and technologies including: geothermal wells that students can study; bioswale; water recycling systems; an exterior designed to reduce heat loss and maximize daylight without succumbing to excessive heat gain; and a multi-layer "green" roof, planted with sedum, a drought-resistant groundcover.
Over 98% of Lawrence Tech students receive financial aid; the average, annual, need-based package is $26,270. Federal, state, and institutional grants, loans, academic and need-based scholarships, and work-study programs can make college more affordable.
