The materials engineering graduate program at the University of Dayton provides state-of-the-art facilities, cutting-edge topics and real-world research opportunities in collaboration with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI). The program accommodates students from a wide range of academic and technical backgrounds and attracts full- and part-time students nationally and internationally. We maintain a position of "front-line" leadership in materials engineering.
Areas of Emphasis
Concentrating on research and study in areas integral to our region: aerospace-alloys, composite-materials, composite processing, non-destructive evaluation (NDE), nano materials and structural-ceramics, our national and international reputation attracts students from around the globe — Japan, France, India, China and Germany.
