Senior Design Projects

LeTourneau University Senior Design

At LeTourneau University, we implement engineering design and project-based learning throughout our entire curriculum.

During the senior year, engineering students participate in a year-long capstone project as part of a multi-disciplinary teams. These team projects embody the learn-by-doing philosophy LETU is known for.

LETU students complete a wide variety of projects that involve collegiate competition, applied research, industry skills and humanitarian service.
