Alum Success

Dan Goodrich

“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.”

Student Workers

The LSSU PDC employs students to work on projects. Students are hired based up their skills to complete specific tasks. Although PDC Student Workers tend to be Juniors and Seniors, any students with needed skills may apply. Besides the areas of Engineering and Engineering Technology, projects sometimes require skills in business, marketing and computer science.
Student Workers are under the supervision of Engineering Projects Managers who have experience in industry and provide mentoring through the projects.
Most of the PDC projects involve pre-patent prototypes which can not be made public. These projects provide the opportunity to work with inventors on novel product concepts.
Experience gained from working on PDC projects is a resume' builder and has drawn the interest of potential employers.
