Dr. B. Lee Tuttle, professor of Metal Casting
Ph.D. from Penn State University in Metallurgy.

Tuttle finds Kettering students confident, goal-oriented and mature. He feels that the two years of professional experience in their field that they have by graduation distinguishes them from students at other colleges. What first interested him in teaching at Kettering was the focus on learning by doing, utilizing a laboratory that was coupled with the lecture in nearly all courses. He enjoys the opportunity to work directly with the students in the laboratory to apply engineering principles.

His advice for prospective students is to "focus first on your academic endeavors to achieve success in this first phase of your life-long, continuous learning experience."

Hidden talents and outside interests: Outside the Kettering community, Tuttle is actively involved with another great community. He conducts role playing and learning training sessions for Cub Scout leaders and staffs Cub Scout special activities.

Dr. Etim U. Ubong, associate professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. in Technology from the Helsinki University of Technology, with expertise in internal combustion engines, alternative fuels and fuel cells.

Ubong, who has taught at Kettering for 13 years, believes Kettering students are one step ahead of their counterparts at other schools because at Kettering students typically know exactly what they want to study. The three words he uses to describe Kettering students are focused, result oriented and confident.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of teaching at Kettering is the pride Ubong feels when his students graduate and go on to successful careers. And as far as the reason he chose to teach at Kettering, Ubong says that the school's efforts in researching fuel cells and alternative energy pushes him to enhance his study into his specific areas of specialization.

Hot tip for prospective students: "Consider studying alternative fuels and fuel cells, since our world will require new sources of power in the near and long-term future."

Hidden talents and outside interests: When he's not on campus, Ubong enjoys playing tennis and soccer.
