If you already know your academic and career goals, then The Durham School will help you exceed your expectations. If you are uncertain of a major or career path, then we invite you to meet with our recruitment and advising team.
As an Architectural Engineer you design and integrate engineering building system including structural, electrical, lighting, communications, heating, cooling, ventilation, plumbing, and fire protection among others. By effectively coordinating these systems, you design safe, energy efficient, comfortable, and sustainable buildings.
As a Construction Engineer you plan, design, and manage the construction process of infrastructure systems including highways, bridges, ports, tunnels, dams, power plants, rails, and underground utilities among others. By effectively executing these tasks while partnering with nature, you build the infrastructure that sustains our modern world.
As a Construction Manager you blend construction knowledge with business principles to plan and execute projects designed by architects and engineers. By effectively managing projects you coordinate the activities of multiple parties, optimize the use of resources, work with a diverse workforce, and ensure that projects are completed safely, on time, and within budget.
