Minority Engineering and Technology Enrichment Camp for Young Men (METEC)

JUNE 21-27, 2015

Join us for engineering action at METEC this summer at the University of Dayton. 

Minority high school males who will be seniors in the fall are invited to live on campus, conduct experiments, network with professional engineers, and visit engineering and science laboratories at the University and at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.

You'll be introduced to career opportunities in engineering and technology with college-level classes and exciting hands-on experiments during METEC's weeklong program. Academic coaches will help you build the skills you need to ace the ACT and SAT. And, you'll learn about the college admission process, including how to select a college and how to apply for scholarships.

Our camp is open to minority high school men who will be seniors in the fall; you must be a U.S. citizen and currently enrolled in a college-preparatory program with a minimum GPA of 3.0.

It's time to satisfy your curiosity about engineering, apply now!

Overnight Experience

Fall 2015

Engineers make a difference! Attend our Overnight Experience for women and minority high school students and discover the University of Dayton difference. 

The Experience begins Friday at 6 p.m. and includes a student track and a parent track. After dinner and the program, students are accommodated in on-campus housing, and parents are responsible for their own overnight accommodations. Members of our School of Engineering Women Engineering (WEP) and Minority Engineering (MEP) programs will host the program.

Students learn about the University of Dayton student experience — in and out of the classroom and meet with current students and key campus partners. Parents participate in a networking dinner with current student employers, parents of our alumni, and engineering faculty and staff. After dinner, University faculty and staff contribute to an enlightening panel discussion. 

On Saturday, the Overnight Experience shifts to an Explore Engineering day at the University, where you'll participate in hands-on laboratory activities, learn about engineering design and innovation from faculty and current students, and talk with cooperative education and admission representatives, current students, faculty and staff. Explore Engineering begins at 10 a.m. (9 a.m. for an optional campus tour) and also includes a student track and a parent track.

The Overnight Experience is limited to current female and minority high school juniors and seniors. The Explore Engineering event is open to all current high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. Registration for the Overnight Experience and the Explore Engineering events will be online this fall. Note: Space is limited and is first come, first served, based on registration completion.

Once you complete the Overnight Experience section on the Explore Engineering online registration form, the School of Engineering Student Services office will contact you with details. For more information, call Student Services at 937-229-5080 or email Julie Brill at jbrill1@udayton.edu.
