Welcome to Kettering University!

Kettering University has a global reputation as a leader in applied research and automotive technology. The faculty at Kettering are world class, actively engaged in research and well suited to train the engineering and tech savvy business leaders of the future.

Since 2012, Kettering faculty have received eleven Major Research Instrumentation awards from the National Science Foundation, more than any other Michigan-based institution of higher education in that period. Within the campus footprint, a 21 acre state-of-the-art Mobility Research Center is in the final phase of construction. Combined with a 4G LTE advanced wireless cellular research network and industry recognized crash lab facility Kettering possesses an incredibly unique research infrastructure capability.

A Kettering graduate education is designed to not only prepare you for a productive career but also provide a potentially transformational life experience. Imagine participating in an industrial or government funded research project, working as a summer intern with one of Kettering’s leading industrial partners, being part of a student led competition such as the AutoDrive Challenge or simply networking with Kettering alumni, many of whom (1000+) are currently serving as a C-Level executive.

Funding your graduate education has never been easier. Kettering University offers a number of financial resources and programs. The Graduate Assistantship (GA) program for example, provides support in the form of teaching or research assistantships and stipends. Kettering Graduate Tuition scholarships are also available on a competitive basis to highly qualified students.

So, welcome to Kettering University. We are thrilled that you are considering Kettering University to further your graduate education. As Graduate Dean, I strongly encourage you to take the first step towards transforming your life and apply to a Kettering University graduate program today.
