Experiments at the University of Dayton.

Minority High School Students Discover Engineering at the University of Dayton.

Overnight Experience before Explore Engineering.

Minority and Women Engineering High School ProgramsEngineers make a 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 AND their parents the night before the School of Engineering's Explore Engineering event.

Parents are invited to participate in a networking dinner with current student employers, parents of our alumni and engineering faculty and staff. A panel discussion by University faculty and staff will follow the dinner. 

During your Overnight Experience, you'll learn about the engineering student experience at the University — in and out of the classroom. You'll meet current WEP and MEP students and 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 and have an opportunity to talk with cooperative education and 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 and are first come, first served, based on registration completion.
