“I chose Kettering because of the co-op program,” said Mallek, who is also enrolled in Kettering’s online Masters of Business Administration program. “I wasn’t entirely sure when I graduated high school if I wanted to be an engineer and what I liked about Kettering is I could try it starting in my freshman year.”
