Duke Engineers for International Development (DEID)

Duke Engineers for International Development (DEID) is a student organization in the Pratt School of Engineering. Every year, DEID sends several groups of Duke students to locations around the globe to assess and implement engineering projects in the developing world. After working with communities to identify their needs, student teams collaborate with professors and professional mentors during the school year to design solutions that are then implemented in the upcoming summer. Students spend from several weeks to two months on-site with responsibilities ranging from project management to physical labor.
