Research Opportunities

Research Programs

Nearly 70 percent of Duke Engineering undergraduates pursue independent research with our faculty. Several programs within engineering offer undergrads research opportunities while earning credit.

Independent Study

Undergraduate students can conduct intensive, hands-on research for academic credit by taking independent study courses.

Independent study can qualify you for Graduation with Departmental Distinction. And, with some planning, these courses can be a part of several of our signature research programs described below. (See department courses: BMECEEECEMEMS).

Independent Study + You Pick the Faculty

If you even want more flexibility for your independent study, explore the research interests of Duke Engineering's faculty. With the right match of interests, you can work with faculty from any departmentnot just faculty from your department or major.
