Dr. Homayun Navaz, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Rice University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in aerospace, propulsion, combustion, computational fluid dynamics, fluid dynamics, radiation and porous materials.
For Navaz, Kettering students are mature, experienced and successful. He feels Kettering students are more mature, respectful and familiar with the work environment than students at other universities. Navaz enjoys interacting with students and ensuring that they become successful. He came to Kettering to teach because he felt he had "experiences that students can benefit from."
He would tell prospective students that he thinks Kettering has "one of the best undergraduate programs with labs for them to acquire the hands-on experience they need."
Hidden talents and outside interests: With hobbies as varied as his research, Navaz enjoys running, tennis, music and more.
