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: Robotics System Integration

Team AIM (AUtomation in Motion) will design and implement a robotics workcell at LSSU's Robotics Lab. The workcell, which will include 3 new Fanuc robots, will serve as an industry-like training platform for LSSU Engineering students and as a station to demonstrate robotics processes for visitors. The project will involve the newly purchased ROBOGUIDE simulation software which will be used as a tool to develop and present an assembly demonstration process that will showcase the various automation technologies that will be incorporated in the workcell.

Second place

Design Competition Senior project Team Rock Rover Design & Development qualified to advance to the international student design competition on November 18, 2009.

ASME Student Design Expositions provide a platform for all engineering students to showcase their innovative design and build projects to a broad audience. Bringing practicing engineers, faculty and students into one venue, this program also provides educational and professional development opportunities for exhibitors as well as spectators. For students, it is an opportunity to demonstrate their products or present their design concepts to potential employers and even investors. For industry leaders, the Expos are like career fairs in reverse; an opportunity to observe the landscape of student design, get to know extraordinary engineering students in the region and see first-hand the innovative ideas and skills students can bring to their companies.
