Ohio Dominican University has partnered with the University of Dayton’s (UD’s) School of Engineering to offer ODU students an accelerated path toward earning their master’s degree in engineering. The program will begin admitting students in fall of 2018.
The program is available in a 3+2 format, meaning students have the option of completing their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in as few as five years. After completing the first three years of their undergraduate studies at ODU, students will attend UD, where they will complete the final year of their bachelor’s degree while simultaneously working toward a master’s degree.
The engineering program is open to ODU students majoring in biology, chemistry or computer science. Students who apply will not be required to pay an application fee or submit letters of recommendation, a personal statement or other admission materials to UD. Students will receive a 50 percent discount off undergraduate tuition during their first year at UD and a 30 percent discount off graduate engineering tuition during their second year.
“This is an outstanding opportunity for high-achieving students who have aspirations of pursuing a career in engineering to complete their bachelor’s degree and an advanced degree in significantly less time than traditional programs,” said Manuel Martinez, Ph.D., Dean of Undergraduate Studies at ODU. “University of Dayton’s School of Engineering is among the top programs in the region, and this accelerated timeline will help give students the advantage of having a head start as they begin their career in a rewarding field.”
