Kettering University Reviews

If you're a technically-minded person who likes to get your hands dirty and wants to pursue a career Engineering, Kettering is definitely the place for you. The co-op program is unrivaled at other universities and the school does everything possible to help you achieve your personal and professional goals. The campus is on the smaller side compared to larger public universities, but I enjoyed having a smaller student body, as it allowed for lower student-to-professor ratios and an environment where you got the chance to know most of your classmates. Additionally, the school has done a lot in recent years to upgrade and modernize the campus and facilities. I'd recommend the school with absolutely zero reservation.

Kettering University is challenging in some ways, however the lessons learned during college is well worth it. The faculty here are amazing to work with and the Co-op program is amazing!
Kettering University is a wonderful school! The classes you take prepare you for your co-op experiences in your designated fields. The co-op experience has been by far the greatest thing that I've experienced. It lets me experience what I will do in the future with my degree once I graduate. Also with the co-op experience it allows me to manage my money, gain responsibilities living on my own, and gain responsibilities within the company I work for.
