"I have been afforded many great opportunities through LSSU. My senior project brought me to an international competition and gave me a chance to see what it might be like working on a race team. I work with graduates from many states and universities, including Michigan, Ohio State, Tennessee, and Auburn. My course work at LSSU gave me knowledge in practical areas that bolster a solid foundation in theoretical study. That knowledge base has helped me to adapt quickly to the fast paced automotive industry."

Dereck Wonnacutt Robotics and Computer Science

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
