Whether you are looking to take your career to the next level or wish to pursue a full-time position in academia or research, The University of Dayton School of Engineering is a great place to pursue your graduate education.
The University of Dayton is No. 2 in the nation for federally sponsored materials research, and we are the No. 1 Catholic University in the nation for all sponsored engineering research and development.
As a top-tier Catholic research University, we offer 14 master’s programs and five doctoral programs that support local industries and national research efforts. Our courses are planned for your convenience, with on-campus evening classes, off-site classes and distance education options.
With $117 million dollars of sponsored research performed by the University last year, you are likely to find a challenging project in your area of interest. In addition, we have formed partnerships with Fortune 500 companies, such as GE Aviation and Emerson, who have constructed R&D facilities right in our campus research park.
The University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at nearby Wright Patterson Air Force Base and more than 88 faculty-led campus laboratories add to the breadth and depth of research opportunities.
