School Details

Kettering University is a four-year private school located in Flint, Michigan. The school was originally founded as The School of Automobile Trades in 1919 by Albert Sobey. General Motors acquired the school in 1926 and re-named it General Motors Institute of Technology. In 1998, the name was changed again to Kettering University to honor Charles F. Kettering as well as to create an identity separate from both General Motors and the auto industry.

Kettering University offers bachelor’s degrees, post baccalaureate certificates, and master’s degrees in math, science, and business. Curriculum combines experiential, hands-on learning with traditional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and Business classes. Kettering also offers students more than 40 minors, concentrations, specialties and courses of study. Departments include: Business, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Liberal Studies.

Kettering requires co-op or other forms of experiential learning for every degree program. KU’s co-op program places students possessing intelligence, initiative, and a strong work ethic with business partners in a hands-on internship experience that can last for their undergraduate career.

KU has over thirty years of experience with distance learning and provides practical graduate programs to students.
