FLINT, MI — Kettering University is the nation’s best automotive engineering school in 2021, according to higher education publisher College Gazette’s most recent rankings.
In a top-ten ranking, Kettering was chosen as the No. 1 school for its academic concentrations, curriculum and alumni successes.
The ranking sites Kettering’s Mobility Services and Automotive Engineering Design concentrations and lists multiple labs that students have the opportunity to use.
The university uses a “cooperative learning” model, which ditches semesters for 11-week terms in the classroom and in the workplace.
“Kettering University (formerly GMI) has been teaching Automotive Engineering for over 100 years, so it’s no surprise that we’re good at it,” said Dr. Craig Hoff, Dean of Kettering’s College of Engineering. “Still, it’s always nice to be recognized for our expertise and the profound success of our graduates.”
Kettering partners with hundreds of employers across the country, including GM, Ford Motor and DTE Energy, to place students based on their interests.
Michigan was the only state to have more than one top ten auto engineering school.
Lawrence Technological University in Southfield made the list as the third best automotive engineering school. Ferris State University in Big Rapids placed seventh.
