Open Days and Visits

 

We pride ourselves on our world leading research and links to significant industry partners. It is a very challenging and exciting time to become an Engineer and Durham University provides the perfect environment to begin this journey.

Professor Simon Hogg
Head of the Department of Engineering

Pre-application open days

Open Days provide talks and tours for the Department of Engineering, with the talk session giving you an insight into the subject, how it is taught at Durham and why you should study at Durham. The tours will show you some of our facilities and give you an opportunity to see demonstrations of students' work. We would encourage you to sign up for both a talk session and a tour. More information can be found here.

Post-application open days

Students holding Durham offers will be invited to open days which take place in February and March each year. These open days will provide you with the opportunity to stay overnight in a college (March days only) and to come into the Department to learn more about the degree programmes. Find out more about these days here.

Alternatives to Open Days

The best way to see the Department is via the open days but if you cannot attend these open days for any reason, please contact us at engineering.admissions@durham.ac.uk. There are a number of dates when it is possible to attend a Campus Tour and a good approach is to book on a campus tour and arrange to visit the Department for the same day.

Department of Engineering Virtual Tour

In the Department of Engineering at Durham University, we appreciate that not everyone can physically visit us prior to applying to and/or joining one of our courses. We therefore encourage you to take advantage of our self-guided virtual tour, where you can digitally take yourself around the Department and see some of the facilities that you would be using as a student on our courses. The tour webpages can be accessed here and each location is accompanied by information points that explain more about the activities in the particular area.

Did you know the department is now on Instagram? Please follow us @duengineering we will be posting all things Engineering and also things happening across the University community.
