WE BRING INNOVATION AND NEW THINKING TO EVERYTHING WE BUILD. INCLUDING OUR OWN CURRICULUM.
Sure, we have state-of-the-art labs and a plethora of research opportunities. But that’s not why we're ranked the No. 1 Catholic university in the nation in engineering research. It's the way we teach, pushing you beyond the walls of engineering and instilling in you an equal appreciation for the arts and humanities. You'll gain new, broader perspectives that show you how to connect integrity with innovation. You become a global citizen with a strong sense of moral responsibility for the world and a profound understanding of your ability to shape it.
We have a long history of innovative contributions to science and technology. In fact, this year marks 100 years of engineering education and research.
WE COME BY OUR IMAGINATION NATURALLY.
INVENTION IS ROOTED IN OUR HISTORY.
If two bicycle repairmen from Dayton, Ohio, can design an airplane, our students can build a high-tech driverless car — or an eco-efficient cook stove.
The University of Dayton is a pre-eminent center for engineering education, research and service. As we celebrate the School of Engineering's 100th anniversary, we are proud to provide a transformative education, strong in the technical component, well rounded by a liberal arts and leadership education, and distinguished by the development of innovation and entrepreneurial minds.
While no other Catholic university in the nation performs more sponsored engineering research, what distinguishes us is our imaginative spirit — and a philosophy that engineers work best in collaboration with others toward the betterment of the world. In our new Innovation Center or in villages in developing countries, we cultivate "possibility thinkers" — students who are committed to excellence, possess a sense of integrity and act as persons of faith.
At the intersection of skill and compassion, dedication and ingenuity, you'll find our engineers.Tony E. Saliba
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS WE'LL HELP YOU At the School of Engineering, innovation isn't just the focus in the lab. It's built in how we prepare you to make an immediate professional impact from the moment you graduate. We blend traditional engineering instruction with a modern, experiential learning environment, giving you the knowledge, know-how and willingness to change the world. So when engineering technology graduate Michael Vehar goes to Boliva to help build solar-powered cook stoves, or when Joseph Hinrichs uses his electrical engineering degree to become Ford's youngest VP and help rebuild an American icon, we know we've taught them more than just professional and technical skills. We've prepared them for a life of leadership and service in the global community.
ENGINEER IS A REWARDING CAREER.
