The Architectural Engineering Industry Advisory Board commits to sharing its professional experience as practitioners and leaders for the purpose of providing expert guidance to LTU in the education of engineers, ultimately supporting the University’s overall Mission and Vision. The Board meets regularly with LTU faculty to discuss current needs and future trends in the Architectural Engineering industry, advising on best industry practices, technology, areas of industry growth, curriculum, outreach, and opportunities for the professional community to engage with students for their continuous success.

LTU’s Architectural Engineering program will be nationally and internationally recognized for rigorous emphasis on engineering fundamentals, innovative research, and challenging hands-on learning projects that are delivered in a progressive, multicultural environment. The Board’s contribution results in an exceptionally well-prepared, diverse generation of engineers capable of independent learning, practical application, and global leadership to improve their communities, our profession, and society.
