“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.”

"I just landed my dream job!  I'm moving to Connecticut where I will be designing high-performance racing mountain bike suspensions.  My interest in biking is the reason studied mechanical engineering in the first place and I just wanted to let Professor Devaprasad know that his ability to teach the fundamentals made it possible for me to reach my goal."

"I am thankful for the project management skills I learned from Professor McDonald and the dedication to detail and quality that Professor Duesing required from us. I would not be where I am now if it was not for their valuable influence."
