Each spring, the Pratt School of Engineering’s doctoral degree programs send invitations to selected applicants for expense-paid, full-day information sessions. Participants receive tours of the Duke campus and Duke Engineering research facilities, as well as meet students and faculty.

These arranged group visits are typically scheduled for the last Fridays in January, February, and March. For those unable to attend on group dates, individual visits can be arranged.
