Dr. Diane Peters, assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, with expertise in combined design and control of mechatronic systems.
Dr. Peters joined Kettering in 2013. She was attracted to Kettering in particular because of the school’s strong connections with industry and the students’ enthusiasm and drive. She thinks that Kettering students are talented, mature, and a lot of fun to be around. She enjoys teaching them and advising the students in both A and B sections of the Society of Women Engineers.
Hot tip for prospective students: “Don’t be afraid to come to office hours. I like to have students stop by, and sometimes there are M&M’s in the bowl on my desk.”
Outside interests: Dr. Peters enjoys sewing, woodworking, and volunteering with homeless animals when she’s not on campus working. She has two rescued dogs of her own.
