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: PDC Projects & LSSU Lab Refurbishment

Team ProtoTech used its resources to develop prototype devices for several of the Product Development Center’s clients in addition to refurbishing the School’s thermal- fluids laboratory. Tasks included research, development, troubleshooting, construction and evaluation of custom and proprietary parts and systems. The projects made full use of the team’s diverse knowledge base of in-depth mechanical and electrical design work.

"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."
