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: Product Development Projects

Team MTD designed, developed, fabricated, assembled and tested a prototype anti-thrombosis device, in collaboration with LSSU’s Product Development Center (PDC). This device was a redesign of a previous senior project/PDC prototype for Dr. G. Chandran, of the Cardiovascular Research Institute of Albuquerque, New
Mexico. It uses a new technique to prevent blood clots in the legs of non-ambulatory patients. The design requirements included small size, low power, low noise, and precision timing of events to ensure optimum performance.

Dereck Wonnacutt Robotics and Computer Science

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
