Program Overview

Program Overview

The Bioinformatics program at Kettering University represents a collaborative effort between the Computer Science and Chemistry/Biochemistry departments. It provides students with a strong foundation in computational methods used to analyze biological systems.

Microsoft DreamSpark

Microsoft DreamSpark

DreamSpark Premium (formerly MSDN Academic Alliance (MSDNAA)) is a Microsoft program available to Kettering University students.  Students and faculty can acquire licensed copies of Microsoft software such as Microsoft Windows, Visual Studio and other products.  The software can be used in coursework and personal non-commercial projects. Students may continue to use these products for non-commercial purposes, even after they graduate.

Co-op Experiences

Co-op & Experiential Learning

Kettering students benefit both monetarily and experientially by being employed by one of Kettering’s many co-op companies. Many of our majors are offered permanent employment by our co-op sponsors. Some decide to pursue graduate or medical school. Kettering students alternate between taking classes for 3 months and then they are off to work for 3 months giving them 2.5 years of work experience upon graduation.
