            I owe my career to TechDuring my 35-year career, I have rubbed shoulders with engineers from other engineering schools and realized that the "little" school in Louisiana provided me with a quality education that was superior to the "big name" schools. Tech put me at a level that allowed me to excel in my field of endeavor. I highly recommend Tech for a great education and learning experience!

            It's has grown and modernizedI just drove through Ruston last night and cruised through campus. My wife was really impressed with the size of La Tech. I was surprised at how many new buildings were there, some old ones are missing and some old buildings have been maintained in excellent condition. They are constantly improving. La Tech produces strong leaders, musicians, teachers, engineers and so many others. A big part of my life was shaped there and I recommend it to anyone that wants to be successful in life. Ruston is a small town with a big heart. You won't regret going to school there. You might even want to stay.
