We’d Visit You, If We Could

If Duke Engineering were a truck, you’d want to take it for a test drive. You’d want to see it for yourself, so you could kick the tires and make sure you felt right driving it.

You’re invited to visit us and do just that (but no kicking, please).

Looking for the Duke Undergraduate Tour?

First-year students participating in Project Seed, an Experiential Orientation program for incoming students, use a laser cutter at the Co-Lab to create designs.

Engineering Tours

Our one-hour walking tours see our tool-filled maker spaces, modern laboratories and landscaped quad. Don’t worry, you won’t miss a thing. We’ve designed our schedule to complement the Duke Undergraduate Admissions campus tours.

Undergraduates and graduate students head to class and socialize with friends during FDOC (First Day of Classes) on Duke’s West Campus.

Virtual Events

Not being here in person doesn’t mean you can’t experience what makes Duke an amazing place. Join us for a live, interactive online program.

Directions to Campus and Duke Engineering

Duke University is located in Durham, North Carolina. The campus is a 20-minute drive from Raleigh-Durham International (RDU) airport. An Amtrak passenger train station and a Greyhound bus stop are located near downtown Durham. From there, it’s a 9-minute car-share ride to the center of campus.

The Pratt School of Engineering is headquartered in the Nello L. Teer Building. Lock your e-bike at the rack out front. Or, take the short walk from the Science Drive Circle transit stop. Visit for campus bus and visitor parking info.

Undergrad tours begin in the Teer lobby. While you wait, browse a copy of I/O Magazine.

If you’re visiting us on business, you’ll find the Office of the Vinik Dean of Engineering just one floor above in 305 Teer.
