Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description:


The team worked in a close relationship with Lake Superior State University’s newly created Prototype Development Center in an effort to bring the ideas and concepts of area businesses and entrepreneurs to reality. Many of the projects within the PDC are either recently patented or under patent pending status. The team strove to accurately represent the visions of their customers and produce prototypes that were of high quality, technically sound, and practical in terms of potential future production. Each project had its own requirements, challenges and timelines that had to be met to satisfy the customer.

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."
