Alum Success

“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.”

Project Description: Mini-Baja Vehicle Development

The key goals for Team ORD were to design and build a lightweight, fast, and strong mini Baja vehicle to compete at the Baja SAE Illinois Competition in June. The competition will consist of several dynamic and static events that will test the performance of the vehicle. Dynamic events measure the acceleration, handling, and endurance. Static events measure the quality of the design, safety and costs.

Creating an updated version of a System Monitor product was the focus of this project. The first area of emphasis was to maintain backwards compatibility with the existing data files; the remainder of the project focused on using those data types to create a working 3D model of a factory. This allowed a user to monitor the workflow of the factory and be quickly notified of any issues.
