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.”

Project Description: Design and Simulate Noise Abatement System

Team NVHM( Noise Vibrations and Harshness Management) will propose and evaluate noise control measures to mitigate the community noise footprint of the Essar Steel Mill in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The project will begin with measurements to establish and prioritize predominant noise sources at the Essar site. Subsequently, engineering solutions will be recommended, their performance in terms of decibel reduction projected, and cost-benefit analyses of these provided.

Linden, Michigan

Jon assessed algae for potential biodiesel production. Two species were examined, Pediastrum sp. which has never been assessed for the amount of oil it could produce and Chlamydomonas sp., which has a known content of oil for biodiesel. The study found that Pediastrum sp. produced about 5% oil per dry mass compared to 24%. for Chlamydomonas sp. Hayes concludes that Pediastrum sp. would not be efficient for biodiesel production.
