Alum Success

"Lake State is a local University that gave me the option to earn my education while be located close to my family.  My short-term goal is to gain as much experience as possible in the community and to possibly continue my education toward a Masters Degree.  I’d like to continue my work within the city and take advantage of opportunities to be more involved in local politics.  In the long term, after I’ve made myself as competitive as possible the marketing field, I’d like to get a job at a medium to large size company and work more with individual products or brands as opposed to marketing a company itself."

" Currently I am a Board Member on the Sault Ste. Marie Downtown Development Authority, in which my marketing background has been beneficial.  Also, I work with the International 500 Snowmobile race as the Chairperson of the Non-Race Events Committee and I work in the pits doing timing for the race and other tasks.  I am studying snowmobile mechanics to eventually become a race official or snowmobile technician.  I compete on the Soo Co-op Credit Union bowling team and I’m continually involving myself in various community events."

Thank you for visiting the College of Business and Engineering website.  We are a college devoted to the education of undergraduates and have a rich history of innovation and service.

Having recently combined the School of Business, School of Engineering and Technology, and the Product Development Center into the newly-formed college, Lake Superior State University (LSSU) forges a bold path forward.  Via this strategic alignment, the innovation and prototyping laboratories currently in place within engineering are leveraged with business school expertise and community resources to allow multidisciplinary teams to design, develop, prototype, finance, market, pilot, manufacture, and distribute products.

Taking the new collaborative linkage to the next level is the South Hall Renovation Project.  This new $12 million facility will provide a Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, where market-needs brainstorming can occur among students and faculty.  South Hall will also include the Global Export Center and the Investment Laboratory.  The Information Commons and multiple meeting spaces of the facility will foster idea interchange, and high-tech classrooms will ensure that students learn both the theory and current “tools of the trade” most expediently.

LSSU is an institution which prides itself in application of theory.  Students receive a very hands-on education.  In essence, they learn by doing, whether in the classroom, laboratory, or via multiple extracurricular activities.  Our exciting future will enable LSSU to reinforce what it already does best!

If you’ve never been to “Lake State”, please visit us.  Less than an hour north of the Mackinac Bridge, the twin Soos (Michigan and Ontario) is a place where you can discover who you truly are within one of the most beautiful natural settings in the Midwest.  Our dedicated, caring faculty and staff sincerely want to see you succeed.

Second place

Design Competition Senior project Team Rock Rover Design & Development qualified to advance to the international student design competition on November 18, 2009.

ASME Student Design Expositions provide a platform for all engineering students to showcase their innovative design and build projects to a broad audience. Bringing practicing engineers, faculty and students into one venue, this program also provides educational and professional development opportunities for exhibitors as well as spectators. For students, it is an opportunity to demonstrate their products or present their design concepts to potential employers and even investors. For industry leaders, the Expos are like career fairs in reverse; an opportunity to observe the landscape of student design, get to know extraordinary engineering students in the region and see first-hand the innovative ideas and skills students can bring to their companies.
