"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

"I just landed my dream job!  I'm moving to Connecticut where I will be designing high-performance racing mountain bike suspensions.  My interest in biking is the reason studied mechanical engineering in the first place and I just wanted to let Professor Devaprasad know that his ability to teach the fundamentals made it possible for me to reach my goal."

"I am thankful for the project management skills I learned from Professor McDonald and the dedication to detail and quality that Professor Duesing required from us. I would not be where I am now if it was not for their valuable influence."

Student Research...

Scottville, Michigan

Andrew investigated factors that stunt the size of northern pike in northern Michigan lakes. His study determined that northern pike in stunted populations exhibited slow growth early on when there was a lack of proper prey species and then stabilized later, possibly due to increased cannibalism. His results will assist northern pike managers in determining management methods for stunted northern pike populations.
