About this course

Duke’s Master of Engineering (MEng) in Mechanical Engineering is an alternative to a traditional master of science program that will improve students' understanding of technology and develop their business leadership and management expertise they need to succeed in their career. In the Master of Engineering program, students will take specialized technical classes and a core of business leadership and management courses, with a required internship or a project completing the degree.

Duke's Mechanical Engineers are refining the design of helicopter rotor blades, developing models to help robot mine-sweepers navigate strange surroundings to find hidden explosives, and building a device that uses droplets of water to carry payloads such as proteins and drug capsules. This kind of real-world research is reflected in the courses we offer to our Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering students. In addition, many of our faculty consult with industry and bring that experience back to our students through classes and projects. The MEng program will help students to become an expert at solving technical problems and prepare them to smoothly navigate corporate culture.
