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.

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.

Hargrove, who is also a graduate of Kettering/GMI, has taught at the institution for 14 years and believes that Kettering students tend to be more mature and competent about real world matters than students from other schools. Additionally, he believes Kettering students have a much better appreciation of the value of business and industry than typical college students.

Mohamed El-Sayed

Dr. Mohamed El-Sayed, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Wayne State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in design optimization, machine design, and vehicle integration.

Kent Eddy

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.

Eddy finds Kettering students to be intelligent and possessing potential. Kettering students are distinguished by an above-average 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" while advancing his own education.

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.
