Whiting School of Engineering


Engineering education at Johns Hopkins began with the establishment of an engineering school in 1913. Throughout its history, the Whiting School has maintained close ties with the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, which has led pioneering education and research since the Faculty of Philosophy was assembled in 1876. The Whiting School of Engineering provides its students with an education and research environment that fosters a lifetime ability to create and apply new knowledge and to contribute to their professions.

The Whiting School offers 10 ABET-accredited programs in engineering leading to the Bachelor of Science degree: biomedical engineering, chemical and biomolecular engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, engineering mechanics, environmental engineering, materials science and engineering, and mechanical engineering. The school also offers B.S. and B.A. degrees in applied mathematics & statistics as well as B.A. degrees in biomedical engineering, computer science, and general engineering.

Our commitment to advanced study and research yields outstanding programs that lead to masters and doctoral degrees. In the descriptions that follow, each department lists its faculty and their research, research facilities, graduate programs, and the elementary and advanced courses they offer.
