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: Concentrated Photovoltaic System

Team HT (Helio-Tech) will be designing, constructing, and testing a prototype window module that contains solar cells to allow for both transmission of light as well as electrical engergy generation. Furthermore, the design will incorporate 3 M Brand Prestige Film to incresase the amount of the energy that the cells produce. This Building- Integrated PhotoVolaic(BIPV) window module will replace either vertical windows or skylights in residential and commercial buildings.

Thaddeus Lewandowski Fisheries and Wildlife

Thaddeus assessed habitat changes over the past 11 years at the Vermilion Ecological Research Station, located some 10 miles west of Whitefish Point on Lake Superior. He compared vegetation records with a survey of current plant communities to describe aspects of ecological processes at the site. While changes to the landscape have occurred during the past decade, the effects may not significantly impact animals such as the Great Lakes endangered Piping Plover.
