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:Upgrade of SAE Mini Baja Transmission

PRS was given the task of designing and building a more robust transmission incorporating stronger chains and heavy duty sprockets, and redesigning the chain tensioning system of the SAE Mini Baja vehicle. The vehicle required greater durability for the harsh conditions of competition which includes hill climbs, mud bogs and rock crawls. The result is a transmission that requires less down time for repairs, providing a more competitive vehicle.
