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."

Electrical Engineering

LSSU is 1 of only 3 universities in the U.S. with a robotics specialization at the undergraduate level

Engineers create and design the products we use every day. They work to improve the things we use to live, work, and play. As an engineer you’ll use your mind and your creative talents to solve all kinds of problems. The field of engineering is as varied as your imagination.

Degrees

LSSU offers a "private university" atmosphere at a public university price. Because of that, at LSSU, you're not a number; you will know your professors and they will know you. Many of our classes have a student to faculty ratio of 14 to 1!

LSSU is 1 of only 2 universities in the U.S. with a robotics specialization at the undergraduate level. We understand the importance of hands-on learning ; 3 out of 4 of our engineering courses offer lab activities. These labs prepare you for 1 of 3 senior project experiences: co-op, industrial, or applied research.

Our graduates are well educated and prepared to enter the job market; graduates will find a 100% placement rate and high, competitive starting salaries, typically over $49,700, waiting for them.

Additional Programs/Options

  • Robotics Option
    (A rare opportunity to combine robotics with your engineering degree)

    The robotics option will provide you with a strong background in robotics applications, robotics system design and integration, machine vision, sensors, communications, manufacturing simulation and automation. LSSU is ONLY 1 of 3 universities in the U.S. with robotics specialization at the undergraduate level. Nearly 100-percent of our graduates find employment as engineers (companies include FANUC Robotics,GM, Applied Manufacturing Technologies, GE, JR Automation and Kawasaki Robotics). LSSU offers a $1 million robotics lab that includes 14 industrial robots, machine vision systems and intelligent sensors.

    Students begin working extensively with the robots at the junior level. However, there are earlier opportunities for those students who have a personal desire to learn and work in our $1 Million robotics lab that includes 14 industrial robots, machine vision systems and intelligent sensors. Our average engineering class size is 14 students.

    Companies that are involved in robotics and automation specifically seek out LSSU graduates.

  • Industrial Technology
    Your academic experience will include a foundation in the basic sciences, mathematical concepts through algebra and trigonometry, general education, software, technology and automation. You will learn to apply your skills toward the solution of practical, industrial-type technical problems. During your senior year, you will participate in the construction-and-build semester of a real-world industrial project, working with engineers and company representatives. You will also have developed communication skills that will enable you to grow and succeed in your professional career. Not a first-time-in-college student? There are multiple technical and free electives to allow transfer students to fit into the flow of the program. As a graduate, you will have the ability to seek employment in the technical areas of business, industry, and manufacturing.

 

  

Electrical engineering students take a sequence of calculus classes and higher mathematics in addition to chemistry and physics. Labs provide the practical application of the theories learned in lecture.
