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: Upgrade Dynamometer System/Create Interactive CAN Trainer

Team SVT (Superior Vehicle Testing) will expand the data acquisition and analysis opportunities within the Vehicle Systems courses by upgrading the existing dynamometer. In addition, team SVT will design an instructional CAN trainer to aid students in better understanding CAN networks. The process of upgrading the dynamometer will involve implementation of new hardware to expand the current dynamometer system. The design of the instructional CAN trainer will include the use CANOE software to acquire and analyze input and output CAN (computer area network) network signals.

The Unique Properties of Sand: Its Use as Criminal Trace Evidence

Whittney Laderoute

Sand was collected and analyzed from five beaches in the upper peninsula of Michigan: The Shallows, Brimley State Park, Point Iroquois, Big Pine and Pendillís Creek. Tests were undertaken in order to determine the reliability of sand as trace evidence in criminal investigations. Size and visual comparisons were made using a compound light microscope and chemical composition was determined by using SEM-EDS analysis. Results showed several size trends and SEM-EDS trends but gave no concrete evidence to suggest that the sand used in this experiment can be used as reliable trace evidence. Further research is necessary to confirm or deny this.
