Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description: Mini-Baja Vehicle Development

The key goals for Team ORD were to design and build a lightweight, fast, and strong mini Baja vehicle to compete at the Baja SAE Illinois Competition in June. The competition will consist of several dynamic and static events that will test the performance of the vehicle. Dynamic events measure the acceleration, handling, and endurance. Static events measure the quality of the design, safety and costs.

“Pick-up Trucks and Aerodynamic Drag CFD Analysis” Presentation by senior Robert Camp based on research work done with Dr. Mokhtar during summer 2008.

An engineer, like all professionals, must possess a well-developed ability to communicate, both orally and in writing. This competition is designed to emphasize the value of an ability to deliver oral presentations.
