NMC Transfer Guide - MACRAO

To: Lawrence Technological University - Main Campus

Program: Architecture

LTU's Architecture is among the oldest in the United States. Architecture at LTU is based on the belief of Leonardo da Vinci's depiction of man in harmony with his environment. Architecture, unlike Design Technology (which utilizes typical drafting and design) is an artistic based discipline. Due to the specific nature of this program, contact with LTU should be made as soon as possible. Also, the sooner you transfer, the sooner you can work on your professional course work.

For information on LTU, call (248) 204-316
