LEARN AND GROW WITH LDA ENGINEERING
LDA Engineering is committed to the future of the engineering industry and communities that the company serves. With this passion in mind, the firm has pledged $250,000 of employee time and financial donations over the next 10 years (2016-2025) to support school systems in East Tennessee. Our goal is to assist with activities that will develop future engineers and scientists.
