LSSU is a small public university in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. LSSU is known for its academic programs such as fisheries and wildlife management, engineering, chemistry and the environmental sciences, teacher education, nursing, geology, business management, fire science and criminal justice. It offers Michigan’s only accredited undergraduate degree program in environmental health. In addition, students attend for LSSU’s degrees in forensic sciences, recreation management, and legal studies.
LSSU is established in 1946 to address the needs of returning World War II veterans to provide educational opportunities to people in the eastern Upper Peninsula. Lake Superior State University was the first college in the United States to offer an accredited four-year fire science program, and continues to be one of only three universities to offer such a program.
The institution is also one of only three universities in the United States to offer the robotics specialization in the ABET/TAC accredited manufacturing engineering technology Bachelor of Science degree. LSSU is home to one of the best robotics educational facilities in North America. The robotics laboratory is valued at over $3 million.
