Visioneering Center


The University of Dayton's partnership with the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN) is over a decade long and still going strong. UD and KEEN recognize that the entrepreneurial mindset equips students to be more curious about the changing world, make connections from disparate information, and create extraordinary value for themselves and their communities. KEEN is a network dedicated to preparing undergraduate engineering students for success with the entrepreneurial mindset. We are proUD to be part of the KEEN Network!
