Graduate Student Resources

Explore our resources to support our students in mind, body and spirit.

Grad School Isn’t Easy. We Get That.

When you join the Duke Engineering community, you create bonds that go deeper than projects, papers and performance. We’re invested in your success, not only professionally but personally.

Duke isn’t a place for sink-or-swim attitudes. We’re about building a support network that works to keep everyone afloat and striving for their goals. We’re about making connections, lasting and beneficial.

Support for the Whole Person

Engaging Socially

Our warm and welcoming graduate student community is an active one. Students and staff work together to build a calendar of engaging events—from the professional to the purely social. Who’s up for some badminton?

Supporting Authentically

Duke Engineering’s support team is your gateway and liaison to significant resources that support health and wellness. Our staff works with students one-on-one to make referrals to Duke’s rich array of support services.

Building Community, at Every Level

A body to represent the voice of our master’s students. Board members provide valuable insights and ideas and plan events and activities that build and strengthen the community.
