Janet Brelin-Fornari

Dr. Janet Brelin-Fornari, professor of Mechanical Engineering and director of the Crash Safety Center
Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in dynamic systems and controls, crash safety, biomechanics, and accident reconstruction.

Joel Berry

Dr. K. Joel Berry, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Melon University, with expertise in fuel cells, heat transfer and computational fluid dynamics.

Berry, who has taught at Kettering and led the Mechanical Engineering Dept. for the past 21 years, feels that Kettering students are focused, committed and mature when compared to students at other institutions. Additionally, the three words he uses to describe them are determined, motivated and winners.

Patrick Atkinson

Dr. Patrick Atkinson, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in bioengineering, crash safety, orthopaedics, and solid mechanics (how things deform when they are pushed or pulled).

Basem Alzahabi

Dr. Basem Alzahabi, professor of Mechanical Engineering and director of International Programs
Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Michigan, with expertise in computational engineering mechanics, automotive noise vibration and harshness, and structural optimization and redesign.

Mohammad Ali

Dr. Mohammad Firoz Ali, associate professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Mississippi State University in Thermal Fluids, with expertise in adhesion, analysis of energy systems, experimental fluid mechanics, and laser velocimetry.

Ali feels that the valuable cooperative education experience distinguishes Kettering students from students at other universities. He enjoys the small class size at Kettering University and would tell prospective students that Kettering is "one of the best colleges for the money."
