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:Upgrade of SAE Mini Baja Transmission

PRS was given the task of designing and building a more robust transmission incorporating stronger chains and heavy duty sprockets, and redesigning the chain tensioning system of the SAE Mini Baja vehicle. The vehicle required greater durability for the harsh conditions of competition which includes hill climbs, mud bogs and rock crawls. The result is a transmission that requires less down time for repairs, providing a more competitive vehicle.

Hands-on Training...

Brian Applegate

LSSU's dedicated three-story fire lab made all the difference to Brian Applegate. "Our certification training classes offered real situations," Brian says. Students practice victim search techniques while controlling and extinguishing fires. Applegate says his favorite exercise was the live fire flashover simulation. "We saw how fires evolved as they burned," he says. "Itís as close as you can get to the real thing." [ more ]
