Lawrence Technological University (LTU) in Southfield, MI, is offering a new associate’s degree in mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology at Focus: HOPE’s training facility in Detroit.
Sixteen students enrolled in the inaugural class, which began in January. Upon completing the program, they will be among the more than 115 students who have earned Lawrence Tech college degrees since LTU and Focus: HOPE launched their partnership in the early 1990s. Students will also have the opportunity to transfer to LTU’s bachelor’s program after completing their associate degrees.
Focus: HOPE, an organization dedicated to creating solutions to such problems as hunger, inadequate education and racial divisiveness, also partners with Wayne State University (Detroit), University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, University of Michigan-Dearborn, Oakland University (Rochester) and the University of Detroit-Mercy.
