“I found that the passion the professors had for their research and learning made my experience at Duke extremely rewarding. Because they really loved the science they taught, I loved learning it.”Janelle Balesh, MEng in Biomedical Engineering Graduate

Blending complex science with innovative concepts and designs that empower humanity, engineering, as a discipline, is an engine for growth and progression.

As Albert Einstein famously said, “Scientists investigate that which already is; engineers create that which has never been.”

To put this into context, science helps us understand the laws of gravity but engineering helps us defy them through expertly constructed rocket ships that launch us into space. The potential of the discipline truly knows no bounds.

Universities are where engineering talent can be developed and refined, granting students the tools, techniques and dedication that elevates success. Coming in at #8 among top US engineering schools ranked by U.S.News & World Report in terms of per-faculty research funding, Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering produces high-caliber graduates who go on to inspire and thrive.

“Duke is a prestigious university, so its reputation is a big draw,” says Yaying Feng, a Master of Science (MS) in Materials Science student who went onto PhD-level studies at Duke.

“The school also offers a two-year MS program with research opportunities. This is different from many other universities, which only provide 1-year or 1.5-year, class-based master’s programs with limited research requirement. I also had an advisor at Duke who could supervise my research and........
