Louisiana Tech’s first-year engineering program provides an immersive, project-focused experience for over 700 students each year. Our six semester hour course sequence, called “Living with the Lab”, boosts experiential learning through student ownership of the “lab.” Students purchase a robotics kit along with tools, software and supplies to provide a platform for laboratory and design projects. Student ownership of the lab expands the scope and complexity of projects that can be undertaken with large groups and fosters the development of knowledge, skills and confidence that lead to innovation.
