The College of Engineering and Science promotes outreach both to the community-at-large and to industrial partners throughout the area.

Industrial Partners develop relationships with faculty and students while providing resources to meet critical needs in the College of Engineering and Science.  Industrial Partner gifts not only enhance academic programs but also support specific scholarships, student organizations and competitions, and student events such as football tailgates, Gumbo Fest and Spring Release. Maintaining partnerships with industry helps ensure that the College continues to produce graduates that are able to meet current and future industry needs.

Students, faculty, staff and organizations throughout the College maintain a connection with the Louisiana Tech and Ruston communities through STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) outreach. Much of this outreach is designed to educate children and teachers about the need for and accessibility of STEM skills.
