Kettering University, Rated #1 in 2008, Has Leading Co-Op Program

Kettering University has been ranked by US News and World Report as “the #1 University in the nation for Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering” in its “America’s Best Colleges Guide for 2008.” The university is unique because they place students in companies their freshman year and rotate them between the school and their co-op job. They alternate every three months so they can gain valuable hands-on experience, starting with their first year at Kettering.
As an educator, I see the value in that type of education. They offer engineering co-op programs industrial engineering, but they also have a whole list of degree program majors with various concentrations of study, the highest degree being a bachelor’s or master’s degree. As soon as they graduage, 98 percent of Kettering graduates have job offers, and these offers are often where they’ve had their co-op educational experience. That’s an excellent track record!
that provide engineering work with an integrated learning experience. This allows students to experience the best undergraduate engineering programs in the country. Each year, there are 2,300 Kettering undergraduates placed as professional co-op students at places like the CIA, General Motors, Sandia Research Labs, TRW, UPS, and Walt Disney World.
