As part of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive universities, Durham University has a longstanding and powerful commitment to research and research-led teaching. We are recognised as one of the leading centres of research in Engineering in the world. Our research covers a wide range of topics, and we encourage interdisciplinary research within the Department as well as national and international cooperation.

Collaboration with colleagues across the wider university and the Research Institutes, is a key facilitator for our research, as well as collaboration with leading academic and industrialists in the UK and worldwide. The overall research strategy in the Department of Engineering includes a desire to diversify the research funding sources by increasing the industrial engagement with our research activity. The Department strategy aligns with the overall University strategy of Quality rather than Quantity, reflecting the world class research across the breadth of the institution.

Our degree programmes are accredited by the Professional Engineering Institutions on behalf of the Engineering Council. This means that graduating students will be deemed to have satisfied certain academic requirements. The MEng programmes fully satisfy the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). The BEng programmes partially satisfy the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng), and will fully meet the requirement when complemented with accredited Further Learning. The accredited MSc programmes meet the accreditation requirements of the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an accredited CEng (partial) BEng (Hons) or an accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree.
