Undergraduate Study

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.

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.
