"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."

Computer engineer Manar Wadi poses with the controller she adapted to run a plasma cutter in one of Lake Superior State University's manufacturing technology labs. The senior project capped four years of hard work at Lake Superior State for Wadi, who works for PATEL, a telecommunications company, in her home town of East Jerusalem.

"I really wanted to see if I could successfully bridge two cultures while keeping my own solid identity," says Manar. "I wanted to help myself, as well as others around me, overcome barriers of culture and prejudgment that separate us. This was one major goal of my college experience, and LSSU offered a perfect environment to do this.

Being a woman engineer doesn't create any obstacles or awkwardness whatsoever to me pursuing a career in Palestine or any of the Arab countries in the Middle East," she says. "In fact, I just received a job offer by Etisalat in Dubai. This shows that women professionals do have job opportunities in the Middle East."

"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."
