Dr. Mohamed El-Sayed, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Wayne State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in design optimization, machine design, and vehicle integration.
El-Sayed views Kettering students as future engineering leaders and feels that they are different from students at other colleges due to their real engineering experience, leadership potential, and professional maturity. He had a desire to teach at Kettering because he believes "that engineering is an art as well as a science profession" and that "Kettering is one of the unique universities that provide a balanced experience in both." In fact El-Sayed's favorite aspect of teaching at Kettering is the "ties with the real engineering world and focus on experiential learning."
He would tell prospective students that "if they like technology and would like to be one of its leaders, come to Kettering."
Hidden talents and outside interests: When not teaching the engineering leaders of tomorrow, El-Sayed enjoys community service and conducting research.
