Bassem Ramadan

Dr. Bassem Ramadan, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics, combustion, fluid flow analysis and modeling, thermal systems design and modeling, energy conservation and analysis.

Homayun Navaz

Dr. Homayun Navaz, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Rice University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in aerospace, propulsion, combustion, computational fluid dynamics, radiation and reacting flows in porous materials.

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.

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.

Janet Brelin-Fornari

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.

Mohammad Ali

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."
