Where Do Duke's ...
Biomedical Engineering Students Go?
Graduates of Duke's biomedical engineering program are prepared to work in medical device design and development, engineering consulting, medicine, biotechnology and more.
In recent years, about half of our BME graduates went to work full-time after graduation. About 40 percent went on to medical school or graduate school.
Civil engineers design infrastructure that provides drinking water and energy, and facilitates movement, communication and commerce. Environmental engineers find methods to control pollution and make communities resilient to climate change.
About two-thirds of our recent Duke CEE graduates went directly into full-time work after graduation. A third went on to graduate or professional school.
Where do Electrical & Computer Engineering Students Go?
Electrical and computer engineers apply their knowledge of advanced computing, including AI and machine learning, and electronics to design digital systems, networks, software, and hardware.
Nearly 80 percent of Duke's recent graduates in ECE went into full-time positions with leading tech companies after graduation. About 15 percent went to graduate school.
Where do Mechanical Engineering Students Go?
Mechanical engineers design machines and systems that make life better. Many of our recent graduates took roles working with robotic, aerospace and medical technologies.
Recently, about two-thirds of Duke's ME graduates went into full-time work after graduation. A third went to a graduate or professional school.
