Alum Success

“I chose LSSU expecting a very good engineering education. What I didn’t expect was faculty with real-world engineering experience and abilities, labs with real-world equipment, projects with real-world outcomes, and an entire campus staff with real interest in my success, as a student and yet today. My LSSU engineering education has created or supported every desired career opportunity. LSSU was absolutely the right place for me.”

Project Description:Process Measurement Device


The project focused on the design and build of an in-line prototype device to be used by industrial facilities to monitor the quality of cooling and lubricating fluids. Several properties of the fluid are measured such as temperature and contamination levels. The resulting data is collected, analyzed, and stored. The device incorporates a human interface using a liquid crystal display with push button inputs. Data is accessible through an Ethernet port, a USB connection or a secure digital card.

Asymmetric Synthesis Using Chiral Auxiliaries and Titanium Enolates

Michael Overbeek

Chiral auxiliary-mediated asymmetric aldol additions are an important method for asymmetric carbon-carbon bond formation. Dr. Daveid A. Evans from Harvard University has developed the use of a boron enolate to allow for specific stereochemistry, often called an ďEvanís Aldol Reactioní. The use of a titanium enolate, instead of a borony enolate, has been documented to create the opposite stereocenters when utilizing the Evanís Aldol methodology. This project describes an attempt to form an anti-Evans product with the addition of phenylacetaldehyde to R-(-)-4-Benzyl-3propionyl-2oxazolidinone. The use of an aldehyde substrate when utilizing a chiral titanium enolate has not been well documented in the literature.
