Alum Success

“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.”

"Federal grants through the aquatic research lab let me work on an assessment of lake sturgeon in the St. Marys River," he says. "I've been tracking adult sturgeon by radio telemetry in hopes of identifying their spawning areas." Besides his sturgeon hydrophone telemetry work at LSSU, Brandon has studied adult Atlantic salmon, radio-tracked an elk herd in Canada, and banded migrating owls at Whitefish Point. [ more ]
