Congratulations for making it to Durham and particularly to Engineering! You have a great time ahead of you, and you are studying a subject vital to many of the global challenges we face in coming decades. Engineers have for centuries been solving societal problems and making advances in materials, design and efficiency that have had environmental and economic benefits, and your job as fledgling engineers is to step up to join that challenge. Our general engineering approach is, we think, the future and our programmes here are delivered by world-class engineering experts across the engineering disciplines, who are constantly striving to update content to prepare our graduates for the world outside. I wish you all the best for your time at Durham and I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can.

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.
