Kettering’s Mechanical Engineering program ranked No. 3 in the country. Kettering ranked No. 17 in the country among undergraduate engineering programs and No. 24 among all Midwest colleges.

“The U.S. News rankings reflect positively on Kettering’s desire to be among the country’s best STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) institutions in the country,” said Dr. Robert Simpson, Kettering University Provost. “The rankings are a testament to the rigorous standards of excellence our faculty hold students and to the hard work the students do both in their coursework and in their co-op placements.”

Kettering’s Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering program has been the dominant program in the country in the U.S. News rankings for more than a decade. The diverse offerings in IME have practical applications in many fields. Students and faculty have worked on recent projects in the healthcare industry with Genesys Hospital, McLaren Regional Medical Center and St. Mary’s of Michigan. Students have also applied IME principles working with local Flint/Genesee County agencies, including the non-profit St. Luke N.E.W. Life Enterprises, local government and a successful urban farm in Genesee County.
