Dr. Massoud S. Tavakoli, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Ohio State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in product design and safety and vehicle collision reconstruction.

Tavakoli sees Kettering students as mature, ambitious and professional. In fact, he feels it is this accelerated rate of maturity that distinguishes them from students at other universities. Tavakoli originally came to teach at Kettering because of the close ties to industry and the opportunities to learn about what takes place in industry. It is the hands-on flavor of education, the laboratory intensiveness and the students that have become his favorite part of teaching at Kettering.

Hidden talents and outside interests: When not in the lab or teaching his students, Tavakoli enjoys camping and community service.
