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.
Dr. Karen Palmer, associate professor of Electrical Engineering
Ph.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Electrical Engineering, with expertise in controls.
A Kettering alumnae, Palmer thinks Kettering students stand out because the cooperative education experience helps them mature quickly. "Our freshmen are like those at other schools," she said, "but by the time they graduate they are years ahead of recent grads from other schools - employers recognize that."
Md Shahnoor Amin '09 has launched a portable energy power source for mobile devices.
