    about us

    Our Goal

    Our goal is to provide you with a quality education and to help you develop your talents, skills, and knowledge for a sustainable career in a strong and viable industry. We design each of our programs with this in mind. We get input from employers who meet with our faculty, staff, and administration to improve existing programs and to help create new ones, depending on the how the economy and needs of industry are evolving. This means that the skills and knowledge you gain when you earn a degree from LTI come directly from the people who do the hiring and who know what qualities make a reliable and valuable employee. In short, once you graduate, you're ready to join other successful graduates who've helped us embody our theme: Real Degrees for the Real World.
