Research Fellowships

Nearly 70 percent of our undergraduates pursue research opportunities with Duke Engineering faculty.

Many do so through structured research fellowship programs, including:


Independent Study

Through IDEAS: Interdisciplinary Engineering & Applied Science, Duke Engineering students create focused and specialized Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) degrees.

Students may propose their own independent-study curricula or choose from pre-approved curricula on these topics:

  • Computational Simulation
  • Environmental Chemistry and Microbiology
  • Risk, Data & Financial Engineering
