"An opportunity like this never would have come available to me if I had not taken the program in the Sault College/LSSU International Division," Hornblower said. "My employer was very impressed with the fact that I not only had a degree in computer networking, but the hands-on knowledge, as well. This is the main reason that I was hired."

Competing as a team of 1 against teams of 3 student programmers, Lake Superior State University student Paul Carley of Sault Ste. Marie took third place at the eighth annual Northern Michigan University Programming Contest.

Carley, and 15 other LSSU students competed in the contest with four other universities and 24 teams total.

"We had 16 LSSU students that wanted to compete this year, so I made five teams of three and just put Paul on a team by himself," said Mark Terwilliger, Computer Science Professor, ."For him to finish third is a remarkable effort."

The project was to develop a mobile application to work on smart phones via Bluetooth to replace an old, bulky pendant used for moving autonomously-guided vehicles manually. The idea was not to be able to do it remotely, but simply eliminate the cost of the pendant. The project consisted of two stages: (1) Learn the Android Software Development Kit; (2) Develop a marketable application. The safe operation of the vehicle was critical.
