Dr. Montserrat Rabago-Smith, Assistant Professor of Bio-organic Chemistry
Ph.D. in Chemistry from Michigan State University, with expertise in organic chemistry and bioorganic chemistry.

Rabago-Smith finds Kettering students hardworking, smart and distinguished from students at other universities by their motivation and how hard they study. She was first attracted to teaching at Kettering because it is a small university with "a very good batch of students" and it is the interaction with these students that keeps her here.

Hidden talents and outside interests: When not teaching or working with students, Rabago-Smith enjoys activities such as Aikido, camping, hiking, swimming, and reading.

Dr. Bassem Ramadan, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics, combustion, fluid flow analysis and modeling, thermal systems design and modeling, energy conservation and analysis.

Ramadan finds Kettering students polite, well mannered, and professional and feels that the cooperative education program makes some of Kettering's students serious about their education, responsible, mature, and knowledgeable; setting them apart from students at other colleges. Ramadan was interested in teaching at Kettering because he was intrigued by the cooperative education program, because Kettering works closely with high tech companies and because of the small campus and relatively small class size. His favorite aspect of teaching at Kettering is being able to educate students, knowing that what he is doing has a positive impact on their future lives and careers, and the continued contact he maintains with students who seek his advice or guidance on their careers or higher education after they graduate.

Ramadan would give prospective students the following advice. "Take your education seriously. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get the education you aspire to, and if you don't get it during your years at college, it will be too late to try to catch up after graduation."

Once when Ramadan was giving an exam for one of his colleagues, he was a few minutes late because of his schedule. When he entered the classroom everyone applauded. He asked them, "Why are you applauding; you haven't seen the exam yet?" This made everyone laugh and helped to put them in a good mood before the start of the exam.

Hidden talents and outside interests: Ramadan has a wide variety of interests to keep him busy when not teaching or pursuing research. He enjoys swimming, skiing, exercising, woodworking, writing, listening to music, and of course fixing things.
