Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Students who wish to undertake graduate work at Duke University, whether for degree or nondegree purposes, must be formally admitted to the Graduate School.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) from an accredited institution and satisfactory GRE scores. Submit application with the following support documents: official transcript ; statement of purpose; 3 letters of evaluation; official GRE test scores; GPA; & non-refundable application fee to the Graduate School.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

If your first language is not English, you must submit scores from either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the academic modules of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). The scores will be a decisive factor during the application review process. The Graduate School only admits applicants who have one of the following minimum scores (some departments may require a higher score):

577 for paper-based TOEFL
90 for an Internet-based TOEFL
7.0 for the IELTS


NOTE: All international graduate students whose first language is not English are required to take oral and written English placement exams administered by the EIS program upon matriculation. Depending on your exam results, you are either exempted from or placed into one or more EIS courses.

Residency Requirements

The minimum residency required is one academic year of full time registration at Duke (12 units each semester). The minimum registration requirement is 60 units of graduate degree credit, of which not more than 15 units of a completed master's degree may be accepted by transfer.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer of up to 15 units of credit for graduate work completed at another school will be considered only after a student has earned a minimum of 12 units of graduate study at Duke. After completing the 12 units, the student should file a request for transfer of credits on the appropriate Graduate School form.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Research Description

Research Description By Graduate Engineering Department

Biomedical Engineering

Duke BME provides a superior interdisciplinary research and education
environment that prepares graduates to be leaders in integrating engineering and biology to detect and treat human disease. A unique aspect of the program is the integration of research and education. Over two-thirds of the undergraduates are involved in independent study research projects, and the graduate program offers students early immersion in research. Current departmental research activities include
biomechanics of cells and hard and soft tissues, biomaterials, cellular and
biosurface engineering, electrical activity of the heart and brain, medical imaging systems, medical informatics, biophotonics and biomedical optics, and
cardiovascular and orthopaedic tissue engineering.

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Pratt's CEE department's mission is to teach and conduct fundamental research in the discipline of civil and environmental engineering. It is built on a three-tiered foundation: prepare tomorrow's leaders, create new knowledge and technologies through research; provide public service to the nation and profession. Research is concentrated in three principal areas: hyrdology and environmental fluid dynamics; chemical and biological processes; and mechanics, structure, and geosystems.

Computer Science

The Department encompasses six active areas of expertise: systems & architecture; algorithms; scientific computing; artificial intelligence; computational geometry & computational biology; and computer science education. We seek to continue our successes in novel research and to identify and develop the key new frontiers that will shape tomorrow's world. This department is adminstrated through Trinity College of Arts and Science.

Electrical and Computer Engineering

The mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to facilitate the development of well rounded, educated, productive, and
ethical individuals who are well versed in technology and in social, political, and environmental issues. Our goals are to develop within each student a robust repertoire of professional skills, to provide each with avenues for exploring diverse interests, and to launch each successfully into one of a variety of careers offering lifelong learning, service, and leadership within their own local, national and global communities.

Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science

The MEMS curriculum capitalizes on the exceptional abilities of our students and distinguished faculty to cultivate the learning, thinking and problem-solving abilities needed to adapt, to develop and to exercise responsible leadership through times of rapid change. The MEMS program provides excellent preparation in the essential engineering topics while allowing wide flexibility for students to pursue their own broader interests. Research areas include: aerodynamics, acoustics, and aeroelasticity; biomaterials and biomechanics; materials science; cellular and membrane mechanics; computational fluid mechanics and heat transfer; nonlinear dynamics and control; thermal science and engineering.

Research Description By Engineering Research Center

Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology

Headquartered at Duke, CEINT integrates the activities of ecologists, cell and molecular biologists, geochemists, nanochemists, materials scientists, social scientists, ecotoxicologists, environmental engineers, and mathematicians. Faculty and students from Duke, Carnegie Mellon, Howard, Virginia Tech, Stanford, Clemson, and the University of Kentucky collaborate with government laboratories and facilities of the EPA and NIEHS, NIST, and DOE. We bridge disciplines in our research and educational program using a multi-institutional team-based model we have developed and tested through our experience with international collaborations. This model places students at the center of the collaborative process and de-emphasizes distinctions between undergraduate and graduate education.

Center for Materials Genomics

Based at Duke University, the Center for Materials Genomics uses high-throughput computational methods to accelerate the process of discovering and developing new materials. The team employs extremely complex calculations to build recipes for new materials composed of novel combinations of elements that deliver the desired propertiesâ€"making it possible to custom-create materials for specific applications that are cheaper, more efficient and more effective than existing materials. The Center makes the formulas for its new compounds freely available via an open-access repository (http://www.aflowlib.org/). A consortium comprising researchers from Duke, Brigham Young University, University of North Texas, Central Michigan University and University of Maryland, the Center serves as a multidisciplinary hub of education and research activities with collaborations across the US and around the world.

Center for Metamaterials and Integrated Plasmonics

Metamaterials and plasmonics are emerging and rapidly growing fields that are expected to contribute to new and breakthrough electromagnetic devices, spanning radio (RF) and microwave frequencies through telecommunications and visible wavelengths. Metamaterials have indeed captured the imagination of the community, particularly with the demonstration of an “invisibility cloak” performed at Duke University in 2006. A primary mission of CMIP is to serve as a comprehensive source of information and education regarding the opportunities that metamaterials provide. CMIP also works with industrial partners to determine the most viable entry points for metamaterial and plasmonic based devices, providing training and design resources, as well as test and fabrication resources over the entire electromagnetic spectrum.

Fitzpatrick Center for Advanced Photonics & Communication Systems

The Fitzpatrick Center is committed to creating innovative solutions for high-content information acquisition, distribution, display, and visualization through the development of technologies and the education of expert practitioners in key areas including: Optical materials; optomechanics & packaging; digital optical sensors & memories; fiber-based switching devices; and broadband, dense-wave-length division multiplexed distributed networks.

Guide 5 Consortium

The research sponsored by the GUIde Consortium is interdisciplinary in nature and requires research in the areas of structures and fluid mechanics. The first three iterations of the GUIde Consortium were centered at Carnegie Mellon University for nearly 15 years. In 2008, the GUIde 4 Consortium Center for Aeromechanics was established within the Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science (MEMS) Department at Duke University. The newly formed GUIde 5 Center for Aeroelasticity continues this tradition of interdisciplinary collaboration with a focus on high-cycle fatigue in turbomachinery. The GUIde 5 consortium includes three government participants, 9 industry participants, and 4 University partcipants.

MRSEC

The Triangle MRSEC is having a major national and international impact in soft matter materials science through generation of (i) new fundamental insights and theoretical understanding, (ii) new design principles, (iii) new applications and uses for new materials made by programmed assembly, and (iv) an ambitious education and outreach program. In response to new MRSEC guidelines, the research and educational activities of the Triangle MRSEC are deliberately designed to emphasize both advances in fundamental materials science and enhanced materials innovation and translation.
