Co-op & Experiential Learning

Kettering students benefit both monetarily and experientially by being employed by one of Kettering’s many co-op companies. Many of our majors are offered permanent employment by our co-op sponsors. Some decide to pursue graduate or medical school. Kettering students alternate between taking classes for 3 months and then they are off to work for 3 months giving them 2.5 years of work experience upon graduation. At school, Kettering Chemistry and BioChemistry students learn to use state-of-the-art instrumentation such as Atomic Absorption Spectrometers, Liquid Chromatographs, UV/Vis Spectrometers, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer (NMR), Gas Chromatographs, Infrared Spectrometers, and Ion-Exchange Chromatographs preparing them for their work experiences.
