Arnaldo Mazzei Jr.

Dr. Arnaldo Mazzei, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in dynamics and vibrations of mechanical systems and computer aided engineering (CAE).

Henry Kowalski

Dr. Henry Kowalski (a.k.a. Doc K), professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Wayne State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in engineering mechanics and aeronautical engineering.

Best known for unleashing his students' explosive creativity in his Experimental Mechanics class, Kowalski has spent 43 years encouraging "outside of the box" thinking. He likes teaching at Kettering because it has "the best students in the world to teach - very eager yet very pragmatic." He also sees them as future leaders.

Craig Hoff

Dr. Craig J. Hoff, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in automotive powertrains (conventional, hybrid electric, fuel cell), in-vehicle data acquisition, design for the environment, and thermal and mechanical design.

Richard Stanley

Dr. Richard E. Stanley, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Wayne State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in dynamics and vibrations (specifically in the area of internal combustion engines) and development of internet animation software for dynamics and statics courses.

Jeffrey Hargrove

Dr. Jeff Hargrove, associate professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University, with expertise in bioengineering, medical research and mechatronics.

Dale Eddy

Dale Eddy, staff lecturer of Mechanical Engineering
M.S. in Manufacturing Management from Kettering/GMI Engineering and Management Institute.

Eddy, who is a graduate of the Kettering/GMI graduate program, has taught at Kettering since 1990. He feels the biggest distinguishing feature between Kettering students and those at other schools is that a Kettering student can handle a heavy academic load at a very swift pace, then turn around and be a highly productive worker at whatever co-op assignment they have during their work term.
