LeTourneau University was founded in 1946 by R.G. LeTourneau, an engineer and businessman who felt called to provide technical and professional training for U.S. servicemen returning from WWII. A devout Christian, “Mr. R.G.” built an educational institution that professes its faith through the production of graduates prepared to achieve excellence and model Christ-like behavior in their professional careers.
Nearly 70 years later, LETU has expanded on the educational mission of its founder to offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in today’s most sought-after fields of study. When you choose to study at LeTourneau University, you earn your degree with an institution that’s dedicated to:
- Academic Excellence: LETU is consistently recognized as an exceptional provider of high-quality education. In the 2014 edition of U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Colleges in America”, we are ranked #27 among regional universities in the west and #5 in Texas—outranking all of Texas’s state universities.*
- Innovation: Our founder’s reputation for ingenuity as a designer of heavy machinery carries through all of our degree programs. As an LETU student, you’ll be encouraged to think creatively, solve problems, and embrace technology, no matter what field you study.
- Faith: At LETU, we believe any career can be a holy calling. Our degree programs offer you spiritual development alongside occupational training, so you can take a Christian sense of mission into your workplace after graduation.
