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.
