Congratulations and Welcome to the Department of Engineering
Welcome and congratulations on joining our Department. This is an exciting time to become a professional engineer. The world is changing with global challenges such as the need to counter climate change and the impact of the global pandemic. Engineers have played a pivotal role in addressing societal challenges and opportunities for hundreds of years. Our contribution is probably needed now, more than ever before, to ensure a sustainable future for all. Our programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels are continually being updated and are delivered by world-class engineering experts in their fields, to best prepare our graduates for what lies ahead in their professional development. I wish you the very best for your time with us here at Durham and afterwards and I look forward to meeting many of you as you study with us.

Your first week in Durham – University Induction Week Events Timetable
The Timetable has been designed so College events don’t clash with any of your academic departmental events, but offer you lots of opportunities to meet your fellow Freshers, find your way around and settle into student life.
To help you keep track of where you need to be, and what you need to do during your first busy days at university, in your College and your Department, we have created a day-by-day University Induction Planner. This should help you to plan your schedule, so you don't miss anything - from being issued with your Campus Card or meeting the staff in your Department, to trying out for a sports team or joining a student society.
We're working hard to welcome you safely and delivering quality education and student experience. Visit our Covid Safety Information webpages for applicants for the latest advice. We can't wait to see you soon!
