At the University of Dayton School of Engineering, we are motivated by "Engineering that Matters" — engineering with a higher purpose.
We are concerned with educating the engineer of the future so our students can become complete professionals. It’s not only about educating competent engineers who excel technically but also about educating engineers who embrace innovation, possess an entrepreneurial spirit, understand social and global awareness and who will serve as leaders in their communities.
Our University enjoys collaborative resources and partnerships that ensure the success of our undergraduate and graduate students through our programs that offer real-world, hands-on education, research and service.
Following our Catholic, Marianist tradition, we value an education of the whole person and are committed to graduating engineers who will impact the lives of many for the betterment of all.
Partnering with other KEEN universities is a complete win-win scenario. We share our best practices with the network and we learn and adopt best practices from others. We also work together within the KEEN community to collaboratively enhance entrepreneurially minded learning outcomes for our students and to provide rich development opportunities for our faculty. We are both thankful and proud to be a member of the KEEN community.Current Achievements
"Engineering that matters is something I want all of our students to know and understand."
Dr. Kim Bigelow has won University of Dayton's 2023 Faculty Teaching Award. Hear from Kim and her students
We have experienced an unprecedented level of faculty development around entrepreneurially minded learning and other advanced pedagogies. We’ve also reached beyond engineering to faculty in communications, English, history, math, and physics who teach undergraduate engineering students. Importantly, our dean, provost, and president recognize the benefits of being engaged with KEEN and are enthusiastic supporters - and faculty know this.
