The Culminating Undergraduate Experience (CUE) represents a Kettering student’s crowning achievement – the tangible proof of growth, knowledge, understanding, and mastery of applicable, real-world skills necessary for success. The CUE is the ultimate example of integrated experiential learning, combining faculty-led guidance, class and lab work, hands-on working experience, and a focused study topic.
The CUE typically involves a thesis project from the student’s co-op sponsor, but students also have CUE opportunities with research faculty, non-profit community organizations, entrepreneurs, and other business ventures. Kettering CUE projects have been in areas such as new product development, process improvement, community enrichment, and new business planning.
When successfully completed, students have a professionally-printed thesis showcasing their abilities.
