While a freshman in high school, Stacy Gardner told her English teacher that she would attend Kettering University.
Justin Young (principle investigator), Terri Lynch-Caris, Mehrdad Zadeh, Girma Tewolde and Giuseppe Turini co-sponsored a program.
Dr. David R. Vineyard, assistant professor of Computer Science
Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Computer Science, with expertise in data bases and distributed algorithms.
Vineyard finds Kettering students to be intelligent, organized and dedicated. He enjoys those "aha!" moments when a difficult concept becomes something the student truly understands.
His insider information for incoming Computer Science students is that through the co-op structure they will be able to use what they learn in class immediately.
Dr. Steven C. Cater, associate professor of Computer Science and Mathematics
Ph.D. in Computer Science from Louisiana State University, with expertise in combinatorial enumeration and graph games, compiler/language design and implementation, and mathematical information retrieval.
Dr. Peter Stanchev, professor of Computer Science
Ph.D. and D.Sc. from Sofia University in Computer Science, with expertise in multimedia systems, database systems, multimedia semantics, and medical systems.
Dr. John G. Geske, department head and professor of Computer Science
Ph.D. in Computer Science from Iowa State University, with expertise in software engineering, computational complexity, theoretical foundations, discrete mathematics, logic and the philosophy of computing.
Geske, who has taught at Kettering since 1994, describes Kettering students as driven, self-assured and hard-working. In his eyes, they are also more career-oriented and inquisitive than students at other schools.
Dr. James K. Huggins, associate professor of Computer Science
Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan, with expertise in formal methods, computer science education, theoretical computer science, ethics in computing and the history of computing.
