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: Robotics System Integration

Team AIM (AUtomation in Motion) will design and implement a robotics workcell at LSSU's Robotics Lab. The workcell, which will include 3 new Fanuc robots, will serve as an industry-like training platform for LSSU Engineering students and as a station to demonstrate robotics processes for visitors. The project will involve the newly purchased ROBOGUIDE simulation software which will be used as a tool to develop and present an assembly demonstration process that will showcase the various automation technologies that will be incorporated in the workcell.

Second Place

“Simulated Arterial Blockages for Ultrasound Training" Presentation by Natasha Flynn of senior project Team Innovative Medical Training Devices.

Engineers, like all professionals, must possess a well-developed ability to communicate. This poster competition, held at the local District Student Conferences, is designed to emphasize the ability to deliver a visual presentation. Subject matter is to be related to some area in the field of mechanical engineering.
