Gianfranco DiGiuseppe

Dr. Gianfranco DiGiuseppe, associate professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology, with expertise in thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, energy systems, batteries, and fuel cells.

DiGiuseppe has taught at Kettering since 2005 and finds Kettering students to be highly motivated, geared toward leadership, life-long learners and team players. He describes Kettering students as self-starters, leaders and passionate about their work and studies.

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.
