High School Students

An Evening with Women and Minority Engineering

NOVEMBER 13, 2015

Registration available in October.

MARCH 4, 2016

Registration available in February.

Engineers make a difference! Attend our Evening Experience for women and minority high school students and discover the University of Dayton difference. 

The Experience, begins Friday at 6 p.m. and includes a student track and a parent track. Because this event is held in conjunction with our Saturday, Explore Engineering program, students and parents are responsible for overnight accommodations. 

During the Evening Experience, your hosts will be engineering students from our Women Engineering (WEP) and Minority Engineering (MEP) programs. Join us and learn about the University of Dayton student experience — in and out of the classroom — and meet with current students and key campus partners, while parents participate in a networking dinner with current student employers, parents of our alumni, and engineering faculty and staff. After dinner, University faculty and staff contribute to an enlightening panel discussion. 

On Saturday at 10 a.m. (9 a.m. for an optional campus tour), you'll participate in an Explore Engineering day at the University. Saturday's program also includes a student track and a parent track, hands-on laboratory activities, engineering design and innovation, and conversations with representatives from cooperative education and admission, current students, faculty and staff.

The Evening Experience is limited to current female and minority high school seniors for the fall event and juniors and seniors for the spring event. The Explore Engineering fall and spring events are open to all current high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. Registration for Evening Experience and Explore Engineering will be online this fall. Note: Space is limited and is first come, first served, based on registration completion.

Once you complete the Evening Experience section on the Explore Engineering online registration form, our School of Engineering Student Services office will contact you with details. For more information, call Student Services at 937-229-5080 or email Julie Brill at jbrill1@udayton.edu.

Minority Engineering and Technology Enrichment Camp for Young Men (METEC)

JUNE 2016

Join us for engineering action at METEC this summer at the University of Dayton. 

Minority high school males who will be seniors in the fall are invited to live on campus, conduct experiments, network with professional engineers, and visit engineering and science laboratories at the University and at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.

You'll be introduced to career opportunities in engineering and technology with college-level classes and exciting hands-on experiments during METEC's weeklong program. Academic coaches will help you build the skills you need to ace the ACT and SAT. And, you'll learn about the college admission process, including how to select a college and how to apply for scholarships.

Our camp is open to minority high school men who will be seniors in the fall; you must be a U.S. citizen and currently enrolled in a college-preparatory program with a minimum GPA of 3.0.

It's time to satisfy your curiosity about engineering, apply now!
