Data & the Duke Engineer

Dear friends,

The explosion of data in the information age promises to give humanity an unprecedented ability to discover new things and make better decisions. From improving health to safeguarding the environment, the potential impact is huge—and so is the need for people who can lead the way. 

That’s why we are investing in our students, our faculty and our infrastructure to create a signature undergraduate experience that gives every student knowledge of data analytics—and expanding our team of faculty thought leaders to inspire and mentor them.  I’m proud to share our ambitious plans and exciting progress, and invite you to contact us to get involved.
