High School Students: Discover University of Dayton Engineering.
Overnight Experience before Explore Engineering.
Engineers make a difference! You can discover the difference that a University of Dayton engineering education makes. We prepare engineers for lives of leadership and service.
The School of Engineering's Women Engineering (WEP) and Minority Engineering (MEP) programs will host an Overnight Experience for high school women students, minority students AND their parents the night before our Explore Engineering event.
Parents are invited to participate in a networking dinner with current student employers, parents of our alumni, and engineering faculty and staff. A panel discussion by University faculty and staff will follow the dinner.
During your Overnight Experience, you'll learn about the engineering student experience at the University — in and out of the classroom. You'll meet current students and key campus partners who interact with our students. Your Overnight Experience begins at 6 p.m. on Friday and includes a student track and a parent track. After the program, students stay in campus accommodations. Parents are responsible for their own overnight accommodations.
On Saturday at Explore Engineering, you'll participate in hands-on laboratory activities and learn about engineering design and innovation from faculty and current University students. You'll also have an opportunity to talk with representatives from cooperative education and admission, current students, faculty and staff. Explore Engineering begins at 10 a.m. (9 a.m. for an optional campus tour) and includes a student track and a parent track.
The Overnight Experience is open to all female and minority students but is limited to current high school juniors and seniors. The Explore Engineering event is open to all current high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. Registration for the Overnight Experience and the Explore Engineering events will be online in late January. Note: Space is limited and is first come, first served, based on registration completion.
Once you complete the Overnight Experience section on the Explore Engineering online registration form, the 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 email@example.com.
Minority Engineering and Technology Enrichment Camp for Young Men (METEC)
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!
