Transforming Engineers for the Future of Automotive

Talent Development for Underutilized or Underemployed Engineers


Our Purpose 

LHPU exists to provide dynamic, industry-relevant, hands-on training in technical and business skill domains to engineering professionals at any career point. We strive to build relationships that benefit our alumni, LHP Engineering Solutions’ customers, and the entire engineering profession alike.


At LHPU, we strive to help our students be as successful as possible, which is why we focus on the skills they will need to use in their everyday lives as engineers. We define success as a student who graduates from our programs and then secures a job post-graduation in the area of engineering that they can thrive in.

Since 2011, we have had over 750 students enter our programs, full of immersive, hands-on technical training. Over 90% of our students graduate and find jobs in their technical fields.

Diversity & Inclusion Statement

Diversity. Inclusion. They’re more than just words for us. They were foundational principles used in the beginning and they continue to guide LHP on how we build our teams, cultivate employees and create a company that’s the right fit for every person inside of it. Most importantly, creating an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work is the right thing to do.


Is LHPU the Right Fit for You?

LHPU brings training and talent development to engineers across the entire experience spectrum. LHPU specializes in kick starting and re-tooling engineering careers. 

Engineering Graduates

For a recent engineering graduate coming out of school, our program at LHPU offers an opportunity to be immersed in a real-world, project-based engineering environment. They will be part of a team, either as a leader or a participant, that works together throughout the project. As a team, trainees will learn to overcome the challenges that occur in any real-world engineering project.

The recent engineering graduate and their team will then have the opportunity to present their well-developed solutions for project deliverables to a group of engineering managers that LHPU invites to Demo Day. This creates a highly beneficial, real-world learning environment for a recent engineering graduate.


Workforce Re-Entry 

For an engineer who may have left the workforce for any reason and is now looking to restart their career, there will be hurdles to overcome. The challenges they face include having been out of the workforce for varying periods of time, knowing again how to present to a hiring manager or a recruiting manager, and re-establishing the experience that they have already had in the industry.

At LHPU, we recreate the engineering experience to really ramp that engineer back up. The program prepares the engineer in terms of technology, in terms of working on a team, and in terms of being able to deliver a project. This program is a great option for someone who is looking to really accelerate that process of re-entering the workforce.


Re-Engineering Your Career

For engineers that have been out of school for a period of time and already have a role in the workforce, yet are looking to explore new engineering spaces, such as autonomous technology or controls engineering, and aren't sure how - LHPU can help. At LHPU, our training courses give you the opportunity to gain experience and learn the technologies needed to break into a new engineering field. LHPU also provides engineers access to staffing agencies and hiring managers in those advanced technologies. Taking advantage of the LHPU training programs, development programs, and networking opportunities can help experienced engineers who are looking to re-engineer their careers.
