Dr. Ram S. Chandran, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Monash University, Australia, in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in dynamic systems, control systems, and fluid power systems.
Chandran views Kettering students as go-getters and feels that their skills in effective time management and leadership set them apart from students at other colleges. It was the cooperative education program that first attracted Chandran to teaching at Kettering. His appreciates that Kettering students are knowledgeable about the real world and that many of them can relate class work to industrial work and learn accordingly, often making teaching a challenge.
Hidden talents and outside interests: When not involved with research and students, Chandran enjoys reading, exercise, and listening to classical music.
