THRUST Masters of Engineering (MEng) Program

Study turbomachinery aeromechanics in Europe and at Duke

Duke MEMS has partnered with the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) to offer an international Master of Engineering (MEng) in Mechanical Engineering program with concentration in turbomachinery aeromechanics dubbed THRUST.

The program offers you the opportunity to earn degrees from partner institutions in Europe and the United States. Duke participants earn both a master's degree from KTH (where you spend the first program year in residence), and a master's degree from Duke (where your second year is spent).

Program Highlights

  • Broad international learning experience – through a suite of turbomachinery aeromechanics courses offered at world-class universities
  • Master's-level program focused on aeromechanics in turbomachines
  • Extended industrial contacts through internships and workshops, where the students, teachers and industrial partners meet in person
  • Expert faculty make use of remote teaching technology for virtual and interactive workshops and project courses
