National Rankings & Achievements

Nationally Recognized Excellence

The University of Dayton is a doctoral, research-intensive university and a top-tier national Catholic university. The on-campus Marianist mission permeates our environment, and our students' experiences lead them to a lifetime of learning, service and leadership.

Our School of Engineering pursues learning that doesn't stop at the door of the lab — or at the border of our country. We believe in a global education that involves the whole person and incorporates other disciplines for professional life skills, so our graduates stand out in the workplace and the communities they join — professionals who make immediate, intelligent impacts on the world. 

That experience — and our dedication to a comprehensive education — is the difference of a University of Dayton degree.
