Duke Engineering

The Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University is a vibrant teaching and research institution focused on exploring the frontiers of engineering. In addition to providing a comprehensive engineering program, our students are encouraged to pursue a multidisciplinary course of study suited to their interests and talents. We view teaching as a partnership where students and faculty share the responsibility to excel.

We offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in biomedical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and mechanical engineering. We also offer professional masters degrees in engineering and engineering management, as well as several certificates in specific areas, like aerospace engineering and energy and the environment.

Over the past ten years, Pratt has been among the fastest-growing engineering schools of the top-tier schools, and over the past five years, we have been the fastest-rising in U.S.News & World Report rankings of top engineering schools. We invite you to explore this site and see for yourself what we're all about.
