The Dayton Area Graduate Studies Institute (DAGSI) is a consortium of graduate engineering schools at the University of Dayton, a private institution; Wright State University, a state-assisted institution; and the Air Force Institute of Technology, a federal institution. DAGSI integrates and leverages the combined resources of the partnership, including faculty, facilities, equipment, and other institutional assets.

The DAGSI partnership, which includes The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati as affiliate members and Miami University and Ohio University as associate members, effectively expands regional engineering education and research opportunities at the masters and doctoral levels.

DAGSI’s ultimate objective is to support Ohio’s economic growth by strengthening the intellectual infrastructure in technology and developing engineering workforce talent.
