Kettering Chemical Engineering, Physics programs receive accreditation

The Kettering University Chemical Engineering program was recently accredited by ABET, a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that accredits university applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology programs. This makes Kettering the sixth ABET accredited Chemical Engineering program in Michigan.

“This is very exciting news for our program,” said Stacy Seeley, the Chemical Engineering Program Director and Department Head for Chemistry and Biochemistry. “It is an affirmation of the significant work we have put into developing a rigorous and unique Chemical Engineering program that fully prepares students to make a positive and immediate impact in the professional world.”

The Kettering University Applied Physics and Engineering Physics programs were recently accredited by ABET, a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that accredits university applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology programs. Kettering’s Applied Physics program is the first in the world to receive the ABET accreditation and the Engineering Physics program is now among only a handful of ABET-accredited.

“Kettering University’s Physics programs are unlike any in the country because of our co-op and experiential-based model,” said Dr. Kathryn Svinarich, Physics department head. “Students apply what they learn in Kettering’s classrooms and labs in industry settings on their co-op term. This accreditation of the Applied Physics and Engineering Physics programs validates how well-prepared Kettering students are to make positive, meaningful contributions to their fields immediately upon graduation.”
