Minority High School Students Discover Engineering at the University of Dayton.
Overnight Experience before Explore Engineering.
Engineers make a world of difference. Discover the difference that a University of Dayton engineering education makes in preparing engineers for lives of leadership and service.
The School of Engineering's Women Engineering Program (WEP) and Minority Engineering Program (MEP) host an Overnight Experience for high school minority and women students the night before the School of Engineering's Explore Engineering event.
During your Overnight Experience, you'll learn about the engineering student experience at the University of Dayton — in and out of the classroom. You'll meet current WEP and MEP students as well as key campus partners who interact with our students. The program begins at 6 p.m. on Friday and includes a student track and a parent track. After the program, the student stays in a University dorm. Parents are responsible for their own overnight accommodations.
On Saturday at Explore Engineering, you'll participate in hands-on laboratory activities and learn about engineering design and innovation from faculty and current University students. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about cooperative education and talk with admission representatives, current students and faculty. The program begins at 9 a.m. and includes a student track and a parent track.
The Overnight Experience is open to all women and minorities but is limited to current high school juniors and seniors. The Explore Engineering event is open to all current high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. You can register for the Overnight Experience and the Explore Engineering events at go.udayton.edu/exploreengineering. Note: Space is limited for the programs, and they are first come first serve based on registration completion.
Once you complete the online registration for the Overnight Experience, you will be contacted by the Women Engineering Program or the Minority Engineering Program with additional details regarding the Overnight Experience. For additional information, call our Student Services office at 937-229-5080 or email the WEP at firstname.lastname@example.org or MEP at email@example.com.
Once you complete the online registration for the Explore Engineering event, you will be contacted by the engineering dean's office with additional details.
Minority Engineering and Technology Enrichment Camp for Young Men
METEC: JUNE 2014
Application required. Tuition fee.
Engineering will come alive next summer on the University of Dayton campus — and you can be part of the action. Minority men who will be high school seniors in the fall, join us and conduct experiments, live on campus, network with professional engineers, and visit engineering and science laboratories at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
This weeklong camp introduces career opportunities in engineering and technology with college-level classes and exciting hands-on experiments. Academic coaches help to build skills needed to ace the ACT and SAT. Learn about the college admission process, including how to select a college and how to apply for scholarships.
The program is open to minority high school men who will be seniors in the fall, U.S. citizens and currently enrolled in a college-preparatory program with a minimum GPA of 3.0.
Now's the time to satisfy your curiosity about engineering.
