Careers at Pratt

Your Place to Make a Difference

Every day, the people of the Pratt School of Engineering work toward tangible, positive impacts on local and global scales. Making a difference is important to us.

Whether you’re looking to contribute to the education of our students, join in the search for solutions to grand challenges, or provide world-class professional services to our diverse and supportive community, Duke Engineering is your place to make a difference.

A Place Where People Are the Focus

Within Duke Engineering, we’re building a supportive community that dares to aim higher and take well-considered risks. The cornerstone of support is individual and family well-being.

Duke offers a rich array of benefits helping with child care, infertility, elder care and counseling for family concerns. In recent years, Duke has expanded its parental leave benefit and increased the number of lactation spaces.

There was nobody who was like ‘kids don’t belong here.’ Everyone understands that life happens, so we work around life.

Celebrating Each Other’s Success

We insist on fun. The Pratt Community celebrates together (a lot). We have a lot to celebrate. Harrington Engineering Quad is our community’s outdoor living room. This green expanse hosts student, faculty and staff events (many with snacks!) most weekdays.

The perks don’t end there. As a Duke employee, you’ll have access to PERQS—exclusive shopping discounts with partner local and national businesses on entertainment, travel, gifts, home services and more.

I followed Duke Engineering Instagram stories, and I really enjoyed them. I learned about all the exciting things happening and the growth within the school. I just think it’s a great place to work and I’m so happy to be here.
