Our dean's message.

At the University of Dayton School of Engineering, we are motivated by 'Engineering that Matters' — engineering with a higher purpose.

We are concerned with educating the engineer of the future, so our students can become complete professionals. It's not only about educating competent engineers who excel technically but also about educating engineers who embrace innovation, possess an entrepreneurial spirit, understand social and global awareness and who will serve as leaders in their communities.

Our University enjoys collaborative resources and partnerships that ensure the success of our undergraduate and graduate students through our programs that offer real-world, hands-on education, research and service.

Following our Catholic, Marianist tradition, we value an education of the whole person and are committed to graduating engineers who will impact the lives of many for the betterment of all.
