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.”

Left Border About the Engineering House Right Border

The Engineering House is an on-campus student residence part of the Living Learning Communities that make up the Row Houses, where the Engineering House is located as the Chippewa House and is a short walk from the CASET Building. The Living Learning Communities provide students within the same academic goals with additional support and resources from faculty in addition to opportunities to collaborate and learn with their peers.

The Engineering House is open to both male and female engineering students of any level (Freshman, Sophomore, etc.) and has no additonal costs from the standard dorm fees on campus. The house itself is also equipped with additional comforts and amenities including a media room containing a large flat screen TV, computers with various engineering-specific software, a library/study including engineering-related literature, and a small set of electrical laboratory equipment such as a power supply generator, an oscilloscope, a function generator, and miscellaneous parts.

In exchange for these amenities and conveniences, the house members are required to participate in a house project that is above and beyond their normal class work. The subject of the project is decided upon by the house members and approved by the house advisor(s). The house project is a great way for students to gain experience working on an engineering team and being part of the engineering process as a project goes from design to build and test.

Last year (2011-2012) the house project was to design and build a data logging system for the SAE Baja vehicle. This project is in its final stages and the students hope to have it completed by the end of October. This year, the Engineering house is designing and building a rapid prototyping (RP) machine. This project is being funded and supported by the LSSU Engineering Department. The main user of this product will be the LSSU Summer Robotics Camps which are put on every summer by the LSSU Engineering Department. This RP maching will be mostly responsible for printing small model robots which are handed out to the participants of the summer camps.

The Engineering House also likes to get together occasionally throughout the year to participate in some sort of fun activity. Before this academic year started, house members along with the house advisors played a round of disc golf with the disc golf course right here on Lake State's campus. This was a great way to get to know fellow house members and have a little fun too!

Jonathon studied the foraging behavior of white-tailed deer. Previous studies claim that deer have the ability to determine which vegetation will benefit them the most during different times of the year. In the fall, deer select diets high in energy content to maintain body mass and temperature. Nachazel's study explored the relationship between preferred white-tailed deer forage and energy levels found in the three types of vegetation. His results will assist managers in helping decrease mortality rates during the winter.
