2024 - 2025 Catalog and Student Handbook

Welcome from our President

Welcome to Lamar Institute of Technology!


Whether you are a first-time student or continuing in your academic journey, I want to thank you for trusting Lamar Institute of Technology (LIT) as your source for education and training. Since 1995, LIT has been offering affordable degree, certificate and workforce programs that are responsive to the needs in our community and result in high-demand, high-quality jobs following completion.


I have no doubt that you are in excellent hands with our team of faculty and staff that are dedicated to your success. You will notice many of our faculty members have worked many years in the fields in which they teach, and are uniquely qualified to share their experiences and connect their industry knowledge to their courses. Our staff is invested in your success, supporting you through financial aid, scholarships, advising, internship and co-op placement and more.  We also maintain strong relationships with industry partners and alumni, who often return to share guidance, build lifelong connections, share job opportunities and give insight into the careers that students are seeking. These experiences go hand-in-hand with academic coursework to produce career-ready individuals upon graduation.


It is an exciting time to be an eagle, as our campus continues to grow in student life opportunities, program offerings, and state-of-the-art facilities. I hope that your time as a student at LIT is empowering and that you take great pride in what you achieve here.
