From small class sizes to collaborative research projects, Kettering BSE students learn in an agile environment that promotes mentorship, classroom interactions and side-by-side participation. You’ll work at the intersection of mechanical, electrical, computer, and industrial engineering at the heart of all modern engineering systems - from mechatronic systems,  to robotic systems, to advanced manufacturing systems.

Dynamic and Hands On

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) program prepares students for a rewarding career in multidisciplinary engineering. Through a dynamic blend of classes and hands-on experiences, you’ll develop essential computer, electrical, industrial and mechanical engineering skills that serve as the bedrock for deeper learning.

After taking a baseline of core engineering courses, you’ll choose between the following concentrations:

  • Advanced Manufacturing Systems
  • Mechatronic Systems
  • Robotic Systems

The Kettering Advantage

With our co-op program, you’ll have as much as two and a half years of experience by the time you graduate. That puts you ahead of other students who don’t start a co-op or learning assignment until their junior year. You don’t have to wait – you get to the good stuff now! It’s worth repeating: the learning experiences you gain give you the advantage, the Kettering advantage. Through co-op and our experiential learning opportunities you’re a professional and any money you earn is yours to keep.
