Louisiana Tech

Louisiana Tech's College of Engineering and Science has some really great programs in Engineering and Computer Science. The school is only 30 minutes from Monroe and is a fantastic resource in our area.

One the innovative programs in the Engineering Department is called "Living with the Lab." Using micro-controllers and robots (Originally the Parallax BOE Bot and now the Parallax Shield Bot with Arduino), the students get to experiment on their own - carry the lab with them - to immerse themselves in their work.

Their Computer Science program is very strong too and they have the country's first Cyber Engineering program which integrates Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. Great stuff. They also have "Living with Cyber" program where each student lives with a Raspberry Pi...
