At LHPU, our goal is to help you excel in the automotive engineering industry by providing you with the hands-on experiences you need to succeed. Though online courses can be valuable and convenient, there is no way to replicate the value you get out of in-person lessons.
LHPU started based on our customer's needs to place engineers on site. We realized quickly that there were two options for our customers. One was an expert who was super expensive, and the other was a fresh college graduate, who is inexperienced and took a long time to acclimate and become productive.
Today's pace of technological change in the marketplace is accelerating. Customers and companies are trying to really grasp what's going on in technological development. The goal of LHPU is to provide engineers who can hit the ground running and really help our customers understand what's going on and help to re-engineer their engineering departments to help achieve their goals around data analytics, telematics, and embedded controls and software.
