“The material covered in LSSU's engineering program provided me a solid foundation for graduate studies. The systematic approach and communication skills needed to tackle engineering projects were taught and then practiced over and over again. In particular I appreciate the many hours spent by the faculty to develop oral presentation skills in each student. As a graduate student now, these skills have proven to be highly beneficial and, to my surprise, obviously not taught to the same extent at many other universities.”

Project Description: Design and Prototype Hose Reel for Forklift

Team CH will design a hose reel for forklifts that will be either a single function (two hoses) or twin function (four hoses), left-handed or right-handed model. The design will involve a modular system that utlizes a minimal number of parts to achieve a single or twin function. Further, the design will be analyzed using finite element analysis (FEA) and fluid dynamics software, as well as cycle testing of a prototype using Superior Fabrication's test platform.

"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful." [ more ]
