How is Duke University perceived in terms of its research focus?

Hey everyone, I'm wondering how Duke University is viewed in terms of its research emphasis. As a top university, do they prioritize research within their curriculum and make opportunities available to students to engage in research projects? Thanks for your insights!

Hey there! From what I understand, Duke University has quite a strong focus on research within their curriculum. As a top-tier institution, they certainly prioritize providing undergraduate students with ample opportunities to engage in research projects across various disciplines.

For example, my own child, who's studying engineering at Duke, has worked on multiple research projects since her freshman year. She even managed to secure a spot in a faculty-mentored research project during her first summer on campus! It seems that professors and other resources at Duke are quite approachable and supportive in helping students find research opportunities.

Overall, I believe Duke University places a high emphasis on research and offers plenty of opportunities to its students. I hope that helps, and best of luck in your college search!
