Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals

Engineering began at Hopkins in 1913, when university leaders decided to establish a curriculum that focused on professional education but included significant exposure to the liberal arts and scientific inquiry. Fostering interdisciplinary creativity, this unique approach to engineering education was in turn emulated by many engineering schools throughout the United States.

Over the intervening decades, thousands of working engineers and scientists earned engineering degrees at Hopkins through part-time study, achieving professional goals without interrupting their careers. That tradition continues today through the Whiting School’s Engineering for Professionals program, which offers part-time graduate courses in 15 disciplines that address industry trends and the latest advances in engineering and applied science. Classes are scheduled at convenient times during late afternoons and evenings and on Saturdays at campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington region, including Aberdeen, Baltimore, Elkridge, Laurel, Rockville, Southern Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Crystal City, VA. Courses are also available online. Depending on their academic program, students earn either a master’s degree or a graduate or postgraduate certificate upon completing their studies.

Further information, applications, and catalogs may be obtained by calling 1-800-548-3647; visiting ep.jhu.edu; or writing to Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, 6810 Deerpath Road, Suite 100, Elkridge, MD 21075. Email inquiries may be sent to jhep@jhu.edu.
