Undergraduate Study

'Studying Engineering at Durham University was the best choice I ever made. Even though sometimes the course was demanding, the experience of being at Durham has been amazing. By having a course that is general for the first two years, it really helped me to understand exactly what I wanted to do. I know that my time at Durham has fully prepared me for whatever the future may hold in my engineering career.'

Samantha Brizuela, Graduate at Jaguar Land Rover


At Durham University, we consider Engineering as an integrated subject rather than sub-dividing the discipline into narrow areas. As a result, our courses produce modern engineers who are capable of solving problems across the traditional engineering boundaries. This gives students a huge amount of flexibility and choice through their undergraduate degree.

We have outstanding course content that equips young engineers with the problem solving skills of the 21st century. High quality taught modules will introduce advanced Engineering topics and a substantial group design element will equip students with the ability to carry out advanced design in multinational teams using appropriate design standards and sophisticated engineering analysis tools.
