Dr. Huseyin R. Hiziroglu, professor of Electrical Engineering
Ph.D. from Wayne State University in Electrical Engineering, with expertise in gaseous electronics, high-voltage systems, and power systems.

Hiziroglu views Kettering students as clever, hardworking, and hands-on. It is the practical understanding of certain concepts that Kettering students gain from the cooperative education experience that he feels distinguishes them from students at other colleges. Teaching high quality students is what first drew Hiziroglu to teaching at Kettering and has become his favorite part of teaching at Kettering.

His hot tip for prospective students is very simple, "study hard!"

Hidden talents and outside interests: When not teaching great students, Hiziroglu enjoys a variety of activities such as classical music, opera, reading, and bicycling.

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.

To Hoff, Kettering students are motivated and have the know-how to work in a professional environment. It sets them apart from others, who are lost when they first enter the work place. Hoff enjoys working with students that go above and beyond and truly want to make things happen. "This was the place to be to teach automotive engineering."

When returning from the Formula SAE competition in 2002, his team leader mentioned that he rode a horse to his school as a child. At first the group thought he was just kidding, but it turned out that he regularly rode his horse to his one-room school house. The team was quite amazed to hear this about someone so young, but it goes to show that Kettering attracts students from all kinds of places.

Hoff would tell prospective students who found high school easy, "Prepare to work harder."

Hidden talents and outside interests: Hoff fills his off hours with reading, traveling, and home projects.

Previously a member of IT's Electronic and Desktop Support group for more than seven years, Deena transferred to the Office of PR & Communications in January 2007 to assist in a campuswide collaborative effort that is working to launch and maintain a new public website for Kettering University. Deena works with Kettering’s Web Team to make the new website more interactive and easier to use.

Her responsibilities include interviewing content owners, writing text, updating content, and helping to create a more consistent voice for Kettering’s Internet presence. Additionally, she will work toward integrating more key words into the website’s text so Kettering can increase its Internet exposure through Google, Yahoo and other search options.

Her current community service activities include: Professional Development Fair Planning Committee and membership in several online groups that foster cooperation and sharing among professional cross stitch designers. Deena also provides an online venue for cross stitch designers to participate in a twice-yearly trade show.

Deena received her bachelor's degree in English from the University of Michigan-Flint.
