Envisioning Tomorrow's Technology - Today

Electro-optics and photonics is changing the way we see the world — and rapidly revising the way we use technology.

At the University of Dayton, we’re on the forefront of this research. We were one of the first universities to develop electro-optics and photonics programs, and we are ranked among the top three by the National Research Council.

Through our 20 dedicated labs, students and faculty, we are conducting research at the heart of new technologies in telecommunications, medicine and manufacturing.

Take, for example, Jay Mathews, Ph.D., who was awarded the Young Investigator Award by the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research for his research in silicon photonics. His goal? Making electronics better, faster and more affordable.

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.
