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.”

Manufacturing Engineering Technology

LSSU's Prototype Development Center puts manufacturing methods, mechanical services, materials testing, electronics, computers and robotics at a company's disposal so it can create functional prototypes of any product
Facilities


Students begin working with 3-dimensional computer-aided design software (CAD) in their first semester. Later in the curriculum they will use the software for computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and animation.


The Manufacturing Processes Laboratory has facilities where students learn to create mechanical parts, processes for production planning and fabrication.

West Branch, MI

Jon Spencer, a junior in mechanical engineering at Lake Superior State University, has married three (3) passions into one (1). His engineered yo-yo (1) might win his alma mater state-of-the-art equipment for its Product Development Center (2), and him a free trip to Japan (3). To accomplish all this, Spencer has entered a custom-designed yo-yo into Roland DG's Creative Awards competition. [ more ]
