Celebrating 75 Years of Duke Engineering
On June 3, 1939, the Duke University Board of Trustees approved the creation of the College of Engineering—establishing the school as a cornerstone of the young university.
From its beginnings as an undergraduate college with just three faculty members in each department and only 201 students, the School of Engineering has grown into one of the nation’s fastest-rising engineering programs, with more than 2,500 faculty, staff, and students, 12,000 accomplished alumni, a vibrant research engine and a record of trailblazing achievements that benefit people all over the world.
In 2014-2015, we’re celebrating the 75th anniversary of Duke Engineering with a host of special events and activities. We invite you to get involved by exploring our history below, participating in our anniversary celebrations, and sharing your memories of Duke Engineering over the years. Questions?
