Summer Engineering Experiences

SEE-UD: Summer Engineering Experiences at the University of Dayton

 

The SEE-UD experiences for 2024 are day-long, non-residential.

The School of Engineering invites rising high school juniors (class of 2026) and seniors (class of 2025) to our Summer Engineering Experiences June 24, 25, and 26. Participants have the opportunity to learn in depth about a specific discipline of engineering while striving to solve some of the most prominent problems our world faces today, called the Grand Challenges of Engineering. Throughout this experience participants will engage with University of Dayton faculty and students to learn more about engineering at UD through interactive modules and hands-on lab experiences.

Note: Our experiences have changed from a multi-day residential camp to a one day experience for the summer of 2024. Overnight accommodations are not available.

Registration will be available early March. Be the first to know!

Grand Challenges for Engineering

Our summer engineering experiences are focused around how engineers can impact the Grand Challenges for Engineering — 14 game-changing goals for improving life on the planet through sustainability, health, security and joy of living.
