Upcoming Admitted Student Days:

December 4, 2017*
February 12, 2018

*December 4 registration is limited to 50 people.  If registration is full, we will have a second session available on February 12, 2018.

At The Durham School's Admitted Student Day, you will have the opportunity to tour lab spaces, meet current students and professors, interact with alumni and industry professionals, learn about student life and scholarship opportunities.  During this full-day program, you will learn about the fields of Architectural Engineering, Construction Engineering and Construction Management.

 Architectural Engineering (AE) focuses on the integrated design, creation and operation of buildings. This includes the engineering of building structures, mechanical systems (heating, ventilation and cooling), electrical systems (power distribution and communications), acoustics and lighting. Buildings are designed by a team of professionals in which AE plays an integral role.  

Construction Management (CM) is the management of construction projects.  Similar to a conductor for an orchestra or a coach for a sports team, the CM is responsible for ensuring that the team is organized and performing  in a safe and efficient manner while delivering the project on time and within budget.  Often the CM works with the designer (an AE, for example) to assist in creating a more constructible, maintainable, and environmentally friendly design.

Construction Engineering (CONE) blends fundamental principles of engineering with new and emerging technologies for the planning, design, and management of the construction process for the infrastructure that sustains our world. This infrastructure includes highways, bridges, ports, tunnels, dams, power plants, railways, and underground utilities. Construction engineers bring others’ interests and ideas together with their own, aiding in the design of structures and applying science with engineering methods.
