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.
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.
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, 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.
Dr. Janet Brelin-Fornari, professor of Mechanical Engineering and director of the Crash Safety Center
Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in dynamic systems and controls, crash safety, biomechanics, and accident reconstruction.
Dr. Mohammad Firoz Ali, associate professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Mississippi State University in Thermal Fluids, with expertise in adhesion, analysis of energy systems, experimental fluid mechanics, and laser velocimetry.
Ali feels that the valuable cooperative education experience distinguishes Kettering students from students at other universities. He enjoys the small class size at Kettering University and would tell prospective students that Kettering is "one of the best colleges for the money."
Kent S. Eddy, lecturer of Mechanical Engineering
B.S.M.E and E.I.T. from Saginaw Valley State University, with expertise in CAD and HVAC.
Professor Eddy finds Kettering students to be intelligent and possessing above-average potential. He believes students are distinguished by a high maturity academically, emotionally and socially. Eddy enjoys encouraging students to set and attain their life goals. He says he was initially attracted to teaching at Kettering because he "wanted to be an encouragement and example to students to define their career and life goals".
Dr. Susanta Das, associate professor of Mechanical Engineering
Dr. Raghu Echempati, professor of Mechanical Engineering, was presented the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Dedicated Service Award.
