Degree Programs

We offer a range of options for pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Our students can pursue dual or second majors and minors, and even earn both bachelor's and master's degrees in just five years.

Program Emphasis Overview

BSE

Bachelor of Science - Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE)

Major in electrical and computer engineering. Students have considerable flexibility to select an area of concentration, as well as pursue minors and second majors available in ECE and engineering, and elsewhere at Duke.

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) consists of 34 units of which 19 are general engineering requirements and 15 are departmental specific requirements.

Minor in ECE

Minor in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE)

A Minor in Electrical and Computer Engineering provides Duke undergraduates with a creditable exposure to ECE that complements the program of study in their first major. It is designed to provide students with a broad, fundamental foundation in ECE, coupled with the opportunity to explore advanced topics tailored to a student’s specific interests.  The Minor in Electrical and Computer Engineering requires completion of a minimum of five technical courses, including three courses drawn from the set of core courses required of all ECE majors and two upper-level ECE courses.

Minor in ML/AI

Minor in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence (ML/AI)

The Minor in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligences provides undergraduates with an understanding of the core concepts of ML and AI, a rigorous and coherent exposure to both fundamental theories and applications.

The Minor in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence requires a minimum of five technical courses, including three courses drawn identified core areas and two upper-level "focus" courses.

4+1 BSE/MS

4+1 Bachelor of Science/Master's Degree

Completing both a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) and a master's degree in five years is a great opportunity to advance your training. Increasingly, a master's degree is considered the starting point for careers in civil and environmental engineering. The 4+1 program is for students who have enough credits to begin taking graduate courses towards a master's degree during their senior year.  There are three master's programs to choose from: master of engineering, master of science or master of engineering management.
