Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Students begin to learn design concepts in the freshman year and apply those concepts throughout the curriculum. Each program has at least one capstone design course where students must work in teams on significant projects, frequently provided by corporate employers. Teams of students also participate in design competitions such as the Mini-Baha, Propane Vehicle Challenge, Hybrid Electric Vehicle Challenge,Process Engineering, Facility Layout, Reliability and Maintainability, Workplace Design/Redesign, Ergonomic and others. Some of these projects are completed for local manufacturing companies.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Kettering University provides an exceptional education that is based on experiential learning, innovation and entrepreneurship, and an expanding set of relevant degree programs. Our students take their classroom learning to a variety of work settings and bring their working knowledge to the classroom. They are prepared to move into the "real world" with practical experience and first-hand knowledge of how business, industry, service organizations, research and development actually work. Our faculty is dedicated to teaching excellence in a learner-centered environment and infuses concepts of innovation and entrepreneurship across the entire curriculum. We have small classes led by full-time, Ph.D.-level faculty members and first-class labs that provide "hands-on" education right from the first semester. More than 92% of Kettering students receive some sort of financial aid and/or earn a generous merit scholarship. In addition, many students are paid for the work they perform during experiential learning terms. Any university can take you places; Kettering University will help you reach your goals.

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. College staff begin the co-op enployment search process for incoming students when they confirm their plans to enroll. Decisions are based on strength of preparation (must complete Math through at least intermediate algebra and trig and either chemistry of physics, both are recommended) grades, rank and test scores. A strong record of achievement is expected on academic criteria and in non-academic activities and experiences.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Kettering University welcomes students from foreign countries. The academic qualifications are assessed on the student's record of achievement in secondary school or university studies. International students are encouraged to present the results of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Testing (ACT). Students for whom English is a second language, or who did not attend a school where English was the language of instruction, are required to present the results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing Service (IELTS). Certified copies of transcripts/educational certificates and records with English translations must be filed with the application.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer students who have pursued an equivalent program of full-time study will have their academic qualification evaluation based on their college record. A separate GPA is calculated for English, Math and Science coursework. Candidates who have not pursued full-time collegiate study and/or followed a program that does not include extensive math and science are evaluated on both their high school and college records and test scores.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

Students may concurrently pursue more than one undergraduate degree program by obtaining the approval of each degree department's academic advisor. Only a single thesis project is required but must meet the approval of each department. If an academic plan is approved in lieu of a thesis project, the course plan must also meet the approval of each department. Each degree beyond the first requires a minimum additional 28 earned hours. No waiver in any specific degree requirements will be allowed; however, common required courses may be allocated to each degree. The second degree must be completed within two years of receiving the first degree or additional requirements may be invoked.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

The Gemini Research Group conducts research at the interface of Chemistry and Biology. Faculty members have diverse academic backgrounds in Organic, bi-organic, and ploymer chemistry. Research topics include: Organic Synthesis & Characterization; Polymer Synthesis & Characterization; Polymer Structure/Property Relationships; Industrial Coatings & Adhesives; Heavy Metal Chemical Analysis; Mechanistic Study of Enzymatic Reactions; Analytical Method Development; Hazardous Material Management; Protein Purification & Characterization; and Ames Mutagenesis Testing.
The Biomedical Engineering Research Group is a dynamic, multi-disciplinary team whose work includes the development of devices to improve clinicians' ability to diagnose and treat debilitating diseases such as arthritis, fibromyaligia, and myofacial pain sydrome. Additional efforts include research on the biomechanics of injury and injury prevention, which is used by the automotive industry to improve safety equipment in automobiles. Other areas of interest to this group include Biochemical Analysis, Enzymology, Protein Purification and Characterization, High Pressure Liquid Chromatography, Gas Chromatography and UV/Visible Spectroscopy.

Mechanical Engineering

1.Developing federal safety standards for child safety seats.
2.Developing an understanding of how biogas (mainly methane + carbon dioxide) can be used to fuel internal combustion engines
3.Developing an understanding of flow patterns in an automotive transmission to improve efficiency
4.Developing an understanding of the effects of mid-level ethanol blends on internal combustion engines
5.Developing fuel cell + reformer system for use as an auxiliary power unit for idling long-haul trucks
