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: Concentrated Photovoltaic System

Team ISS project that will be upgraded by Team ISI

Team ISI will analyze and improve upon the prototype solar array system designed by the 2010-11 senior project team ISS (Innovative Solar Solutions). The enhancements will include the optimization of the housing design adn electronics that contain and control the solar array incorporating 3M Brand Cool Mirror Film. The focus will be on cost reduction, improved manufacurability, and increased power output.

Bloodstain Pattern Analysis: A compara- tive Study between Spatter for Human and Porcine Blood

Jessica Beaudry

The forensic investigation of violent crimes and deaths lead to one of the most significant and frequently encountered types of physical evidence, blood. From the early discoveries and advances in technology, the field of forensics continues to grow, especially in the field of bloodstain pattern analysis (BPA). It is necessary to devise experiments or controlled reproductions to continue the expansion of the BPA field. Human blood can be extremely dangerous due to infectious diseases. There are a few safer alternatives to using human blood and they include using spatter training blood and porcine blood. This study focuses on the comparison between human, porcine, Evident, and Sirchie spatter training blood. The data strongly indicates that while porcine blood is comparable to human blood, Evident and Sirchie spatter training blood is not.
