Research for the Common Good

The University of Dayton School of Engineering is excited to announce its 2017 graduate colloquium on Research for the Common Good to motivate and promote cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary discussions on finding optimal solutions.

UD Degree Programs and Partners

Our School offers Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering, electro-optics, materials engineering, and mechanical and aerospace engineering, in addition to M.S. degrees in the above areas as well as chemical engineering and civil engineering. We also have strong interactions with biology, chemistry, computer science, and physics within the College of Arts and Sciences, and also with the University of Dayton Research Institute, which has an annual research expenditure of approximately $100M, and strong collaborations with government and industry through the Air Force Research Labs, General Electric EPISCenter, Emerson Climate Technologies, IDCAST and others.

In keeping with the vibrant teaching and research atmosphere in the School of Engineering, we look forward to illuminating presentations by, and interactions between, graduate students specializing in areas relating to advanced manufacturing, including addition, automation, controls, Internet of Things, materials and robotics. These individuals will also participate in tours of various research facilities on campus, tour GE and Emerson, interact with our own students and researchers, and engage in workshops on proposal writing and faculty job interviewing. In return, this event will help us learn from the best and the brightest in the the above areas, so that we can continue to grow and contribute more effectively in this very important area.
