Admitted Master's Students

Congratulations on your admission to Duke Master’s Programs in Engineering!

We are excited for you to join our Duke Engineering master's student community and look forward to assisting you with enrollment.

Fall 2020 Orientation

All students starting in Fall 2020 will participate in a mandatory orientation in August.

Importantly, students should aim to be in Durham, North Carolina, at least a few days before orientation. Please keep this timeline in mind as you start to plan your journey to Duke. Arriving a few days early will give you time to adjust and get settled in Durham before orientation begins.

When to Arrive – International Students

All international students should arrive in Durham by August 1.

Please keep this timeline in mind as you start to plan your journey to Duke, so that you have time to adjust to the United States and get settled in Durham before Orientation begins. You may arrive in the United States up to 30 days before the first day of classes (July 25). Classes start Monday, August 24.

When to Arrive – Domestic Students

Domestic students should arrive in Durham by August 14 for Pratt Master's Student Orientation.

Classes start Monday, August 24.
