Over 100 Years of Engineering at the University of Dayton.

Over 100 years of excellence in engineering education and research.


In our Catholic, Marianist tradition, engineering students at the University of Dayton design adaptive devices to help children with disabilities gain independence, create eco-efficient cook stoves in countries where open-fire cooking causes deadly respiratory problems and develop solar-powered devices to sterilize medical equipment in Nicaragua. Our students work with regional industries on a low-risk alternative to gastric bypass surgery, an energy-efficient commercial dishwasher and a solar-triggered security light system. You'll benefit from our research and cooperative education opportunities at nearby Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and others or study abroad for international experience. Our programs blend core foundational courses for multidisciplinary studies, and business leaders and corporate recruiters say that engineering graduates leave the University ready to make an immediate impact — prepare for a global profession at the School of Engineering.
