Kettering University is one of five universities across the country to be featured in a recent Automobile Magazine article about careers in the industry.
The article, entitled “So you want to break into the automotive industry,” highlights five colleges “that provide a road map to a plum position in one of the country’s most vibrant industries.”
Kettering was noted for its reputation for producing automobile engineers.
“For seven decades, Kettering University was known as the General Motors Institute and it provided the world’s largest automaker with annual infusions of fresh engineering blood,” the article states.
Mike Hurley ’95, who currently works was a General Motors vehicle dynamics engineering, was quoted in the story about his Kettering experience.
“By the time I graduated, I’d already spent two-and-a-half years in the work environment, so I was better prepared than students who came from more conventional schools,” Hurley said.
The article has not yet published but will appear on pages 18-20 of the December issue of Automobile Magazine.
The other four schools highlighted were Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., McPherson College in McPherson, Kan., University of North Carolina in Charlotte, N.C., and Northwood University with main campuses in West Palm Beach, Fla. and Midland.
