The Department of Engineering at Durham University is the department engaged in the teaching and research of Engineering across a broad range of disciplines. It was formed following the split of the School of Engineering & Computer Sciences in October 2017. The engineering research covers civil, mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering research groups cover topics within three distinct Research Challenge areas; Future Energy Systems, Next Generation Materials & Microsystems and Sustainable Infrastructure. 
The School offers four-year Master of Engineering programmes in both General Engineering and Computer Science. The School also offers three-year BSc in Computer Science and BEng in General Engineering. In all these programmes, the first two years are common to all students with the opportunity given for specialisation in later years, into civil, mechanical, aeronatics, electronic and electrical engineering.
Relevant undergraduate programmes are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Institution of Engineering and Technology and, through the Joint Board of Moderators, the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers. This means that the degrees offered by the School are recognised as meeting the academic requirements for progression to Chartered Engineer status. Computer Science BSc programmes are accredited by the British Computer Society.
In 2016, The Times Good University Guide ranked General Engineering 2/49 and ranked Computer Science 7/105.
