The College of Sciences and Liberal Arts is home to the Department of Chemistry, Biology, Chemical Engineering and Biochemistry as well as the Departments of Computer Science, Liberal Studies, Mathematics, and Physics. Courses offered through the college range from biotechnology to statistical analysis to nanotechnology to system and data security to humanities and social sciences.

Academic Programs

Kettering’s Applied Biology program places a strong focus on the molecular and cellular levels. It is intellectually rigorous, heavily lab oriented, and includes significant hands-on experience gained from laboratory classes, undergraduate research, and participation in the required, paid cooperative education program.

Applied Mathematics

At Kettering, we specialize in Applied Math. That’s right—math for the real world. Small classes, state-of-the-art facilities, co-op and experiential learning opportunities that start in your first year—it’s no surprise that Kettering math grads are the ones employers want most.

Any field that needs high-tech tools and creative thinking needs applied physicists. At Kettering, that’s our specialty preparing physicists who solve real-world problems. Kettering offers the first and only ABET-accredited Applied Physics program in the nation offering state-of-the-art labs, world-class faculty, and the nation’s most extensive co-op and experiential learning program. No place does physics like Kettering.

So many of the most promising innovations and ideas of the 21st Century depend on the work of chemists and biochemists. At Kettering, that’s our specialty: preparing scientists to change the world. With small classes, state-of-the-art labs, co-op and experiential learning opportunities — no one does Chemistry and Biochemistry like Kettering.

Nearly every company in the chemical process, materials science, food production, and medical fields industries employ chemical engineers. The Chemical Engineering program at Kettering is one of only six accredited programs in the state of Michigan. At Kettering, that’s our specialty: preparing scientists to change the world. With small classes, state-of-the-art labs, co-op and experiential learning opportunities — no one does Chemical Engineering like Kettering.

The work of computer scientists is essential to virtually every human endeavor. Organizations from Microsoft and Apple to the U.S. Government are seeking programming whizzes, software gurus, and information architects to create even better, faster, smarter technologies. And there’s no better place to get ready for life on the cutting edge than Kettering. Small classes, state-of-the-art labs, co-op and experiential learning opportunities that start in your first year— it’s no surprise that U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks us as one of the nation’s top programs.

Any field that requires multidisciplinary knowledge to solve technical problems involving physics and engineering applications needs engineering physicists. At Kettering, that’s our specialty: preparing physicists who solve real world problems. With state-of-the-art labs, world-class faculty, an ABET accredited curriculum and the nation’s most extensive co-op and experiential learning opportunities, no place does physics like Kettering.
