Faith in the Future

"St. Joseph Trusting in Dreams" represents St. Joseph carrying Jesus and greets all to campus, including engineers and those who pray to the Saint for intercession on behalf of workers and craftspeople.

100 Year Anniversary Events

The School of Engineering's 100th Anniversary celebration began June 11 with the dedication of the new statue St. Joseph Trusting in Dreams, which was installed at the entrance of the School of Engineering building — Kettering Laboratories. The statue was commissioned through the generosity of Tim '81 and Karen Beach and created through the artistry of Joe Aspell '68. 

Join the University of Dayton's School of Engineering as we honor our past, cherish our present and build for a bright future.
