Department of Engineering
Welcome to Engineering at Durham
As part of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive universities, Durham University has a longstanding and powerful commitment to research and research-led teaching. We are recognised as one of the leading centres of research in Engineering in the world. Our research covers a wide range of topics, and we encourage interdisciplinary research within the Department as well as national and international cooperation.
Our degree programmes are accredited by the Professional Engineering Institutions on behalf of the Engineering Council. This means that graduating students will be deemed to have satisfied certain academic requirements. The MEng programmes fully satisfy the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). The BEng programmes partially satisfy the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng), and will fully meet the requirement when complemented with accredited Further Learning. The accredited MSc programmes meet the accreditation requirements of the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an accredited CEng (partial) BEng (Hons) or an accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree.

We went out as a team of 16 engineers from Durham University to race our solar powered race car that we’d been building for two years.
Two of our graduates Peter Kirby (Engineering, University College, 2011-15) and William Smith (Engineering, University College, 2011-15) have been working with colleagues at Durham to launch Tred, the UK’s first and only green debit card that helps users spend more sustainably.
