Extraordinary! Celebrate Achievement Expo is Friday

By Deena Hosmer | Apr 13, 2012

The Achievement Expo at “Celebrate Kettering” on April 20th is the best showcase of academic research and projects in University history.

An EaselThe largest, best and most important gathering of academic research and projects in Kettering University history awaits visitors at “Celebrate Kettering” on Friday, April 20.

Around 60 poster displays are planned during the University’s special day, “Celebrate Kettering,” which also includes the Inauguration of Dr. Robert K. McMahan as the University’s seventh president.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to see the state-of-the-art research performed by Kettering faculty, students and student clubs; samples of instructional projects and services of the faculty and staff; outreach and other important activities,” said Dr. Huseyin Hiziroglu, professor of Electrical Engineering and chair of the Achievement Expo.  “Personally, I am quite impressed with the quality of each poster that will be presented by Kettering’s faculty and students.”

Dr. Hiziroglu said diversity of the poster topics enhance the strength of the Poster Sessions, which run on Friday, April 20, from 2-3:15 p.m. and again from 5:30 p.m. during the Inauguration reception.  The Celebrate Achievement Expo is on the third floor of the Campus Center.

“Kettering faculty, students and staff should be complimented for the time and effort they all put in preparing the posters in a professional way in order to have a successful Poster Session. By the way, this is the largest Poster Session with 59 Posters that we have ever had at any such Kettering event,” he added.
