Duke's Distributed Master of Engineering Management Program (d-MEMP) is an innovative distance option for early-career working professionals seeking an engineering management degree in a challenging yet personalized environment. d-MEMP provides students the opportunity to pursue a prestigious degree program while maintaining their professional career track.

Our staff is committed to supporting d-MEMP students throughout their course of study.
