Dr. Michael Elta, associate professor of Electrical Engineering
Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in Electrical Engineering, with expertise in solid-state devices, optics, electronics manufacturing and VLSI processing.

Another alumnus, Elta feels Kettering students have an advantage over students at traditional universities in that they gain practical experience from their co-op employment that can be directly related to their field of academic study.

He enjoys interacting with his capable and creative students in small classes, and believes the Kettering experience develops "real world" engineers.

Hidden talents and outside interests: Off campus Elta keeps busy motorcycling, skiing, kayaking and participating in shooting sports and martial arts. His artistic side enjoys photography and music and he keeps his cool by meditating.

Dr. Huseyin R. Hiziroglu, professor of Electrical Engineering
Ph.D. from Wayne State University in Electrical Engineering, with expertise in gaseous electronics, high-voltage systems, and power systems.

Hiziroglu views Kettering students as clever, hardworking, and hands-on. It is the practical understanding of certain concepts that Kettering students gain from the cooperative education experience that he feels distinguishes them from students at other colleges. Teaching high quality students is what first drew Hiziroglu to teaching at Kettering and has become his favorite part of teaching at Kettering.

His hot tip for prospective students is very simple, "study hard!"

Hidden talents and outside interests: When not teaching great students, Hiziroglu enjoys a variety of activities such as classical music, opera, reading, and bicycling.

Dr. Kenneth L. Kaiser, professor of Electrical Engineering
Ph.D. from Purdue University in Electrical Engineering, with expertise in electromagnetic compatibility, applied electrostatics, and electrical safety.

Kaiser sees Kettering students as experienced and able to "get the job done" which he feels is what distinguishes them from students at other universities. The strong emphasis on teaching, the cooperative education program, small class size, and interaction of professors with students all figured highly in Kaiser's decision to teach at Kettering. It is the small class size and experienced students that Kaiser enjoys most.

Hidden talents and outside interests: When not working with his students, Kaiser enjoys painting portraits in oil and beekeeping.
