Summer Engineering Experiences at the University of Dayton (SEE-UD)

SEE-UD Changes Because of COVID-19

2020 Summer Engineering Experiences at the University of Dayton have been canceled due to the evolving and unknown situation with the COVID-19 virus. Application fees are being refunded to those that applied to attend.  

While this is not the outcome that any of us wanted to see this summer, the health and safety of the student participants and our faculty and staff are of utmost importance.

Even though we cannot be together in person this summer, we’d still like to engage with you around your interest in engineering! We have several ways to engage:

  • We are developing free virtual summer content for rising high school juniors and seniors. More details will be coming soon! Fill out this form if you are interested, and we will notify you closer to this summer with details.
  • Juniors and Seniors can schedule a virtual appointment now with an engineering department and engineering student ambassador by going to go.udayton.edu/virtual-engineering-visit.
  • High school students can take a virtual UD campus visit and schedule a fall visit here: https://udayton.edu/apply/undergraduate/virtual-visit.php.
  • We plan to host onsite camps again during Summer 2021. The info on these SEE UD pages for Summer 2020 will give you an idea of the structure of camps for Summer 2021.
