Dr. Tony Lin, professor of Industrial Engineering
Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and Statistics from Iowa State University, with expertise in quality assurance, reliability and maintainability, statistical methods and design of experiments.
Lin finds Kettering students smart and motivated with more real world experience than students at other universities. Lin originally came to teach at Kettering in order to excite students to pursue knowledge in industrial engineering. He enjoys the ability to connect his teaching with practical industrial applications.
Dr. Kenneth L. Kaiser, professor of Electrical Engineering
Ph.D. from Purdue University in Electrical Engineering, with expertise in electromagnetic compatibility, applied electrostatics, and electrical safety.
Dr. Beverly Jones, associate professor of Management
Ph.D. from Union Institute in Management
What Jones appreciates most about Kettering students is their time management skills. She went into teaching because she wanted to share her knowledge and professional experience and she's glad she did because of her interaction with what she calls "smart, assertive thinkers" at Kettering.
She encourages all prospective students to come to Kettering for the outstanding learning experience cooperative education has to offer.
