Culminating Undergraduate Experience Thesis

The Culminating Undergraduate Experience (Thesis) represents a Kettering student’s crowning achievement – the tangible proof of growth, knowledge, understanding, and mastery of applicable, real-world skills necessary for success. The Thesis is the ultimate example of integrated experiential learning, combining faculty-led guidance, class and lab work, hands-on working experience, and a focused study topic. The Thesis typically involves a thesis project from the student’s co-op sponsor, but students also have Thesis opportunities with research faculty, non-profit community organizations, entrepreneurs, and other business ventures. Kettering Thesis projects have been in areas such as new product development, process improvement, community enrichment, and new business planning.
