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: Robotic Automation Flow Line - Mechanical

Team PAS, in partnership with team AIR, has designed and implemented a 4-robot automation flow line in LSSU’s robotics lab. The line consists of four Staubli industrial robots, a PLC with DeviceNet, a conveyor system, four vision systems, robotics tool changers, end of arm devices, and several other flow line sensors and components. The team selected and integrated a pallet conveyor system, designed and manufactured end-of-arm tooling, installed and integrated components, and provided PLC programming. Automated assembly of model zambonis will be demonstrated.

Amanda Zoerner Honors Biology Pre-veterinary Science, Business Minor

Amanda studied the interaction of genes that determine coat color in English Springer Spaniels. Springers are medium-sized hunting dogs that display a variety of colors and markings, depending upon the interaction of several genes. Zoerner's study used polymerase chain reaction and restriction enzyme analysis in the laboratory to detect gene mutations that caused differences in coat color.
