Degrees & Concentrations
Electrical Engineering Technology
You can earn an associate degree with 50 credits in electrical engineering technology, math and science and nine general education credits. Another 35 engineering technology credits and a senior year sequence to complete your general education requirements will complete a bachelor’s degree. You can also minor in Robotics Technology!
Manufacturing engineering technology (MfgET) is a multi-disciplinary field that integrates knowledge from areas of study such as science, math, computers, mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, management and economics. MfgET is a profession that gives you the expertise to develop tools, processes, machines and equipment to make quality products at a reasonable cost. The profession also involves working with and coordination of people from several other fields. In addition to providing a strong background in the fundamentals of manufacturing engineering technology, the program places an emphasis in the application of computer systems to modern manufacturing. This includes topics such as robotics, computer-aided design (CAD), programmable logic controllers (PLC), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). The classes and labs in the curriculum average about 15 students and are taught by faculty who are dedicated to undergraduate teaching excellence. Students pursuing the B.S. degree in manufacturing at LSSU have the option to minor in robotics technology. LSSU is one of only a few universities in the U.S. to offer the robotics specialization in the ETAC of ABET-accredited manufacturing engineering technology B.S. degree. LSSU is home to one of the best robotics educational facilities in North America, and recently listed among in the 20 Colleges with Really Cool Robots on Campus by the blog at www.universitiesonline.com. Our MfgET graduates have had 100 percent job placement with competitive starting salaries. A scientific “high technology” basis in the field of manufacturing engineering technology is evolving. The MfgET program is designed to place LSSU graduates at the leading edge of this evolution.
A minor in Robotics Technology is a perfect compliment to this degree.
Ever wonder what your fellow students are up to during the summer?
Here is an update we received from Kerry Pierce. Kerry is a Computer Engineering student from Northville, Michigan. She's going into her senior year, Kerry will be having fun in senior projects this year!
"I started out the summer doing a lot of travelling throughout the "tourist traps" of Michigan, from a trip to Mackinac Island to an adventure in Presque Isle at a friend's cottage. Been to a lot of lighthouses, including the nearby Whitefish Point and Point Iroquois stations. Just last week, I also decided to start my life as a real-life "superhero" called Intrepid, and I've been doing a whole lot of volunteer work since. I've gone out picking up litter on the city streets in full costume, assisted a gentleman with his computer, and helped a woman move into her new house. I'll be attending a superhero pancake breakfast at the end of August to support the Diane Peppler Center and to inspire the children of the community. My caped escapades have only just begun, as I have year round plans on how to help our campus, our city and its residents!"
How cool is she?! Enjoy the last of the summer, I hope you're having as much fun as Kerry is!! ... See MoreSee Less
Interested in checking out what our mini baja team is up to? You can watch a live-stream of the competitions at the link below.
Go number 42!
The dynamic events are on Saturday - which are the sled pull, suspension, maneuverability and acceleration. Then on Sunday is the 4 hour endurance event. Either of those days would be good to scope out the live stream!
