Alum Success

“The material covered in LSSU's engineering program provided me a solid foundation for graduate studies. The systematic approach and communication skills needed to tackle engineering projects were taught and then practiced over and over again. In particular I appreciate the many hours spent by the faculty to develop oral presentation skills in each student. As a graduate student now, these skills have proven to be highly beneficial and, to my surprise, obviously not taught to the same extent at many other universities.”

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.

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.
