    Kettering is extremely expensive. For mechanical engineering it might be worth it, especially if you want to go into a career in the auto industry. However, if you wish to venture outside of the auto industry, Kettering is absolutely not the place you want to be. You can get an equivalent education (arguably better for some majors) at Michigan State or University of Michigan, for a fraction of the price (in state tuition).

    Kettering's tuition is not cheap, but when you factor in the 6 months spent working in a great paying engineering job with irreplaceable experience it is an incredible value.
