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: 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.

Linden, Michigan

Ben studied the effects of farm-raised pheasants on the seasonal abundance of coyotes. Pheasants are typically present in the area he studied shortly after being released between August and November. Monthly estimates of coyote abundance showed a corresponding increase in number, when the pheasants were present.
