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.
SPOTLIGHT ON SENIOR DESIGN TEAMS AND PROJECTS *5 of 6*
Team SEA Superior Engineering & Automation Automated Alignment of Robot with Steering Column
Team Members: Sarah Becks (CE), Jacob Kline (ME), Scott Lordson (CE), Roberto Valdez (ME) Faculty Advisor: Masoud Zarepoor Company: Nexteer Automotive (Saginaw, MI) Industrial Contacts: Tim Bennett, Fred Berg, Dave Prior
Project Description: Team Superior Engineering Automation (SEA) was tasked with automating the current alignment process between a robot arm and steering column using a vision system and a compliance device for Nexteer Automotive. The goal of the system is to reduce the amount of time required to run the alignment process and improve the repeatability of that process and the testing effort. The system includes a camera and laser system to check alignment at each point, and a force cell to record the force efforts on the steering column. The compliance device allows the robot to move from one point to another with minimal stress on the column. Additionally team SEA was tasked with developing a data acquisition system (DAQ) to collect the force readings of the tests.
