Alum Success

“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.”

Electrical Engineering

LSSU is 1 of only 3 universities in the U.S. with a robotics specialization at the undergraduate level
Facilities

The Robotics and Automation Laboratory has over $1 million in robotics equipment. Courses in systems integration and machine vision, automated manufacturing systems, and robotics engineering prepare you for robotics careers in the fields of applications, design, software, equipment development, and controls. Students work with Karel and V+ software, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and application of C programming concepts.


The Robotics and Automation Laboratory has 14 robots and equipment valued at over $1 million for use in the undergraduate curriculum.

Meet our Robots

  • Staubli: One of the fastest and most accurate articulated robots with six degrees of freedom.
  • Adept: Made by the only U.S. robot manufacturer and one of the most widely used selective compliance articulate robot arm (SCARA) type robots fitted with machine vision
    systems and cameras.
  • Fanuc: From the Arcmate family with six degrees of freedom built by one of the world’s largest robot manufacturers.
  • Motoman: One of the three largest robotics companies and one of America’s fastest-growing companies.

In the Lab


Electrical engineering students have access to several labs including control systems, digital/microprocessor and integrated systems.

"Engineers apply scientific knowledge to design things that help people live better lives. As electrical engineers, we convert the motion of electrons into practical devices that do things like making cars safer, enabling deaf people to hear, and allowing a daughter in Michigan to instantly send family photos to her father in China. What a great way to make a living!"

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.
