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.”

Senior Projects

Baccalaureate programs in engineering include a senior design experience that prepares students for the transition from college to employment or the rigors of graduate school. All engineering and engineering technology baccalaureate students participate in a senior project, selecting from one of the following options:

  • Industry-sponsored project
  • Cooperative education work site
  • Research

Students are placed into groups with diverse backgrounds to be able to problem solve and develop the final product or conclusion. See the links below for senior projects from this and previous years.

Brochure PDFs from past projects are available for download:

Thaddeus Lewandowski Fisheries and Wildlife

Thaddeus assessed habitat changes over the past 11 years at the Vermilion Ecological Research Station, located some 10 miles west of Whitefish Point on Lake Superior. He compared vegetation records with a survey of current plant communities to describe aspects of ecological processes at the site. While changes to the landscape have occurred during the past decade, the effects may not significantly impact animals such as the Great Lakes endangered Piping Plover.
