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: Vermilion Point Project

Team VIPERS undertook the first phase of a 10-year project for Vermilion Point, located west of Whitefish Bay in Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula for the non-profit land trust company, Little Traverse Conservancy. The main goals were establishing a communication infrastructure and an energy assessment. The team installed a weather station, constructed a communication network, and proposed an alternative energy solution to LTC for future phases of the project.
