Alum Success

"I graduated from LSSU in Mechanical Engineering in 1999, and have since had a heavy focus in robotics and systems integration. I spent my first 7 years with FANUC in Rochester Hills as a product manager, and have since worked for Hartness International managing a robotic automation group. We continue to grow at a rapid pace, and will integrate 60+ robots this year and see no slow down in sight. My experience at LSSU has enabled me to take charge in this challenging and growing market."

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.

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 ]
