Dr. K. Joel Berry, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Melon University, with expertise in fuel cells, heat transfer and computational fluid dynamics.
Berry, who has taught at Kettering and led the Mechanical Engineering Dept. for the past 21 years, feels that Kettering students are focused, committed and mature when compared to students at other institutions. Additionally, the three words he uses to describe them are determined, motivated and winners.
Dr. Patrick Atkinson, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in bioengineering, crash safety, orthopaedics, and solid mechanics (how things deform when they are pushed or pulled).
Dr. Basem Alzahabi, professor of Mechanical Engineering and director of International Programs
Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Michigan, with expertise in computational engineering mechanics, automotive noise vibration and harshness, and structural optimization and redesign.
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."
This is an optional make-up advisement session for ALL ME students including those requiring mandatory advising as well as those registering for back-to-back academic terms. This is the last advisement session of the term, so please plan accordingly.
This is a mandatory academic advisement session for students registering for their final academic term at Kettering and all ME students pursuing a dual degree. This session is not for Freshmen I or new transfer students unless currently enrolled in a dual degree program.
Dr. Raghu Echempati, professor of Mechanical Engineering, was presented the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Dedicated Service Award.
Chaz Mancino, a member of the Formula SAE team, writes about the team's two strong performances this month.
