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.
