About this program

The Master of Engineering (MEng) program in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE)

The Master of Engineering (MEng) program in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Duke Kunshan University is established due to the current strength of interdisciplinary education and research of Duke’s own ECE program.

Through this program, we seek to accomplish the following missions:

Make impactful contributions to talent training in China, facilitating Duke and Duke Kunshan University’s rise to leading global institutions.

Through our collaboration with Duke, we will recruit top ECE candidates from China and its neighboring countries, giving them the environment and resources necessary to become global technical leaders in the field of ECE. These goals will create a global vision for Duke and Duke Kunshan University.

It is important to note that the ECE MEng program at Duke Kunshan University will not be a simple replica of Duke’s existing ECE program. Instead, we have considered the remarkably rapid technological advances of today’s global environment, which includes the United States, China, and other neighboring countries. With these considerations in mind, we have carefully designed our program, making it well-positioned to meet the demands of the evolving market. Designed with industrial needs in mind, students will be exposed to modern Chinese business practices, industry standards, and plenty of networking opportunities. Such experience is not just valuable, it is indispensable in this globalized economy, and necessary whether students eventually return to China or choose to work for US companies engaged in business with China.

The program will offer two years of training for students, who will spend their first year at Duke Kunshan University. Other than a few exceptional cases, students are expected to spend their second year abroad at Duke, where they will receive a Duke MEng degree while gaining valuable international experience. Students spending their second year at Duke will have access to resources if they decide to remain abroad after graduation, such as Optional Practical Training (OPT) from the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, which will aid students in expanding their work experience and industry knowledge in the United States.

Our program will offer integrated classroom education and professional training. This combination will prepare students for the active engagement necessary to devise solutions for global technical challenges. The students we seek are those who desire an international education experience in both China and the US, as our program was designed to give students they need to become technical leaders for global companies.
