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.

Cost: $35

Limited Financial Assistance is available for eligible students. If you or your child would like to learn more about financial assistance, please email engineeringcamps@udayton.edu.

All camp registrations are final and non-refundable.

Dates: Each day will cater to one or two specific engineering disciplines. Participants may attend multiple days if interested.

  • June 24: Choose from Mechanical Engineering (energy, sustainability, mechanical systems) or Chemical Engineering (food engineering, process engineering). Mechanical Engineering is full. Chemical Engineering has limited spots still available - register soon.
  • June 25: Engineering Technology (sustainable manufacturing, process optimization using methods from mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and industrial engineering). Engineering Technology is full.
  • June 26: Choose from Electrical and Computer Engineering (bioengineering, analog wave applications) or Civil Engineering (geotechnical, transportation, hydraulics). Electrical and Computer Engineering is full. Civil Engineering has limited spots still available - register soon.

On days with two disciplines, these camps will run at the same time. Students will not be able to attend both at the same time.

Time: 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Lunch is included.

Through our summer camps, you'll be able to

  • Engage with faculty, engineering professionals and engineering students.
  • Explore the diverse fields of engineering through interactive sessions. Guided by University faculty, you'll discover how engineers tackle some of the most pressing challenges facing society.
  • Optional parent/guardian programming to learn about the college admission process, along with UD and engineering specifics.

Each day will cater to one or two specific Engineering disciplines. 

  • June 24: Choose from Mechanical Engineering (energy, sustainability, mechanical systems) or Chemical Engineering (food engineering, process engineering). Mechanical Engineering is full. Chemical Engineering has limited spots still available - register soon.
  • June 25: Engineering Technology (sustainable manufacturing, process optimization using methods from mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and industrial engineering). Engineering Technology is full.
  • June 26: Choose from Electrical and Computer Engineering (bioengineering, analog wave applications) or Civil Engineering (geotechnical, transportation, hydraulics). Electrical and Computer Engineering is full. Civil Engineering has limited spots still available - register soon.

On days with two disciplines, these camps will run at the same time. Students will not be able to attend both at the same time. (For example, a student cannot attend both mechanical engineering and chemical engineering. But they can attend another camp on June 25 or 26).

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.
