What do you think you will be able to do with what you learn in the DKU ECE MEng program?
We require a resume highlighting experience, activities, and leadership, whether in the classroom, in a volunteer setting, a club or organization, or on the job. Work experience is not required for the campus program, but current undergraduates can focus on any internship experience they have.
If you have a preferred format, please use it. If you don’t, you might find it helpful to view a sample resume from current Duke students. Notice the kind of information they highlight. Generally, students with little experience should be able to get their resumes down to a maximum of two pages.
Recommendations are submitted electronically via the online application.
We require Master of Engineering (MEng) applicants to provide three (3) letters of recommendation.
The letters can be academic or professional. If you’re still a student, at least one should be academic. If you’re a working professional, it’s fine for all to be professional.
When choosing academic recommendation providers, do not simply choose those professors who gave you the highest grades. Instead, think about selecting those who can give insight into your preparedness for the Master of Engineering (MEng) program. Give them an overview of the program, along with a copy of your resume and an understanding of your goals.
Recommendations must be submitted electronically via the online application. You will be required to enter the contact information of your recommenders (including email address), and the recommenders will, in turn, be sent a link from which they access the online recommendation form and be given the opportunity to upload a letter in support of your application.
