UD School of Engineering Student Opportunities

Go Beyond the Classroom

Bachelor's Plus Master's Program (BPM)
The BPM program makes it easy to earn an M.S. degree by linking your University of Dayton undergraduate and graduate programs.  Interested University undergraduate students must have a 3.0 grade point average and apply for the BPM program during their undergraduate program, as well as apply directly to the graduate program of their choice.  If accepted, students can take two courses at the graduate level during their undergraduate years and reduce the number of required classes for an M.S. degree from 10 to 8. In addition, the cost of tuition for BPM students is about 2/3 the normal cost of tuition during their first 12 months of their M.S. program.

The Ethos Center
In the ETHOS service program, students help integrate technology with global cultures and communities. The emphasis is placed on ideas and implementation of appropriate technology, sustainable development and service-learning through technical immersion, integrated classroom work, collaborative research and on-campus activities.

Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam
The FE Exam is typically the first step to obtaining a Professional Engineer (P.E.) license.

Grand Challenges Scholars Program
The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) GRAND CHALLENGES FOR ENGINEERING  globally serves people and society for the “continuation of life on the planet and a more sustainable, secure, healthy and joyful world" and has sparked a global movement for engineering. In 2009, the NAE endorsed an engineering education that focuses on global awareness and social skills along with Grand Challenges that broaden undergraduate study in engineering to the global community — the Grand Challenges Scholars Program (GCSP).
