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."

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.

Dereck Wonnacutt Robotics and Computer Science

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
