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: 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.

"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."
