Alum Success

"I graduated from LSSU in Mechanical Engineering in 1999, and have since had a heavy focus in robotics and systems integration. I spent my first 7 years with FANUC in Rochester Hills as a product manager, and have since worked for Hartness International managing a robotic automation group. We continue to grow at a rapid pace, and will integrate 60+ robots this year and see no slow down in sight. My experience at LSSU has enabled me to take charge in this challenging and growing market."

Project Description: Thrombus Prevention Device

Team IVI designed a medical thrombosis prevention prototype to decrease the risk of lower-extremity venous thrombosis, blood clots in the leg veins of human individuals. It improves blood circulation by applying pressure to different parts of the patient’s lower extremities in a timed sequence. The parts of the device include two cuffs: one for the upper thigh and another around the foot along with a controller to synchronize the operation with an air pressure supply unit. It allows medical professionals to conduct clinical trials and produce documentation to assess the effectiveness and safety of the device.

Second place

Design Competition Senior project Team Rock Rover Design & Development qualified to advance to the international student design competition on November 18, 2009.

ASME Student Design Expositions provide a platform for all engineering students to showcase their innovative design and build projects to a broad audience. Bringing practicing engineers, faculty and students into one venue, this program also provides educational and professional development opportunities for exhibitors as well as spectators. For students, it is an opportunity to demonstrate their products or present their design concepts to potential employers and even investors. For industry leaders, the Expos are like career fairs in reverse; an opportunity to observe the landscape of student design, get to know extraordinary engineering students in the region and see first-hand the innovative ideas and skills students can bring to their companies.
