“I chose LSSU expecting a very good engineering education. What I didn’t expect was faculty with real-world engineering experience and abilities, labs with real-world equipment, projects with real-world outcomes, and an entire campus staff with real interest in my success, as a student and yet today. My LSSU engineering education has created or supported every desired career opportunity. LSSU was absolutely the right place for me.”

Computer engineer Manar Wadi poses with the controller she adapted to run a plasma cutter in one of Lake Superior State University's manufacturing technology labs. The senior project capped four years of hard work at Lake Superior State for Wadi, who works for PATEL, a telecommunications company, in her home town of East Jerusalem.

"I really wanted to see if I could successfully bridge two cultures while keeping my own solid identity," says Manar. "I wanted to help myself, as well as others around me, overcome barriers of culture and prejudgment that separate us. This was one major goal of my college experience, and LSSU offered a perfect environment to do this.

Being a woman engineer doesn't create any obstacles or awkwardness whatsoever to me pursuing a career in Palestine or any of the Arab countries in the Middle East," she says. "In fact, I just received a job offer by Etisalat in Dubai. This shows that women professionals do have job opportunities in the Middle East."

Asymmetric Synthesis Using Chiral Auxiliaries and Titanium Enolates

Michael Overbeek

Chiral auxiliary-mediated asymmetric aldol additions are an important method for asymmetric carbon-carbon bond formation. Dr. Daveid A. Evans from Harvard University has developed the use of a boron enolate to allow for specific stereochemistry, often called an ďEvanís Aldol Reactioní. The use of a titanium enolate, instead of a borony enolate, has been documented to create the opposite stereocenters when utilizing the Evanís Aldol methodology. This project describes an attempt to form an anti-Evans product with the addition of phenylacetaldehyde to R-(-)-4-Benzyl-3propionyl-2oxazolidinone. The use of an aldehyde substrate when utilizing a chiral titanium enolate has not been well documented in the literature.
