Kettering University, Theta Epsilon Chapter
Kettering University is a private, cooperative education and experiential-learning-based university. Since its founding in 1919 as The School for Automotive Trades, Kettering University in Flint, Michigan has had deep ties with General Motors and the automotive industry. In fact, the University was acquired in 1926 by GM and renamed General Motors Institute of Technology (GMI). The tie was later severed in 1982 and the school was renamed to Kettering University in 1998 to honor Charles Kettering, who helped found the school.
The Theta Epsilon chapter of IEEE Eta Kappa Nu was founded at Kettering University on March 16th, 1978. Over the years, the chapter has inducted over 1100 members. More recently, the Theta Epsilon group has remained active through frequently holding ECE student study sessions, inviting & sponsoring food for guest speakers from industry, attending volunteer judging events for local robotics competitions, and hosting soldering workshops for ECE students.
