University of Dayton River Campus

Performance Matters

More than 50 faculty and researchers collaborate to make the University of Dayton No. 2 in the nation for federally sponsored materials research. Our work encompasses nanomaterials, advanced composites, high temperature materials and the next generation ceramics and metals.

External research funding for our work now exceeds $40 million annually. And the University has been recognized as a Center of Excellence in High Performance Materials by the State of Ohio and has received funding for an Ohio Research Scholar endowment in this area.

As dean of the School of Engineering, I am privileged to watch our students growing into engineers dedicated to a better world for us all. At the University of Dayton, we're committed to supporting student success by providing opportunities that connect learning, research and scholarship with leadership and service — the Catholic, Marianist tradition.

With our shared knowledge, we can continue to transform engineering education to prepare our students for even greater success.
