Overview

Kettering University Overview

"Where do you want to go? What do you want to be?" No university helps students answer those questions better than Kettering University. Kettering is a highly-acclaimed, private university located in Flint, Michigan, that combines innovative, hands-on programs in engineering, math, science, and business with a ground-breaking professional cooperative education and experiential learning program. Students are connected with amazing, hands-on learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom through our innovative co-op program, undergraduate research projects, entrepreneurship and service learning opportunities, incredible design competitions, and more. Those who know Kettering students agree -- tomorrow's business and industry leaders are at Kettering today. Kettering University students learn more, simply because they do more, and as a result are positioned to live truly extraordinary lives.

Think differently, learn differently

Kettering leads the way in professional cooperative and experiential education. Kettering students alternate between study terms and work terms. During study terms students learn amazing material in small, intense classes taught by professors, not teaching assistants. During co-op work terms, they gain professional experience at a corporation that connects to their studies and interests. Kettering gets students working sooner than any other school. So they find out early about what they like to do -- and what they never want to do again. Kettering's students have done everything from testing ballistic systems to designing biomedical tools. All of our employer partners -- more than 500 companies including UPS, Ford, Argonne National Laboratory, Bosch and Boeing -- are defining innovation in industry. Students graduate with up to 2.5 years of real world experience. All of this experience pays off -- research shows that students who participate in co-op programs are more mature, better problem solvers, and are more technically knowledgeable. Because of this, 98% of Kettering students are employed within their fields or attending graduate school within six months of graduation.
