Whether you are considering your undergraduate major or embarking on post-graduate study, we encourage you to consider joining the materials science and engineering community at Johns Hopkins University.
Our department emphasizes close interaction between students and faculty, often in collaboration with researchers from other departments, centers, universities, and industrial and national laboratories. We invite you to explore our website to meet our faculty and explore research opportunities. Contact us by phone or email if you have any questions about the application process.
Prospective students, please visit Johns Hopkins University's undergraduate admissions website for admissions requirements and application instructions.
Students interested in applying to the Combined Bachelor's/Master's program must follow the instructions for graduate admissions.
Those interested in applying to the Master's, Ph.D., or Combined Bachelor's/Master's program must use the Graduate Studies Online Application. Paper applications will not be accepted.

The Institute for NanoBioTechnology has two special graduate education programs available to Ph.D. candidates in Materials Science and Engineering:
The IGERT in Modeling Complex Systems provides training in scientific approaches to coupling multi-physics models at different scales and can lead to a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering.
Students interested in the IGERT programs should apply directly to the Ph.D. program in Materials Science and Engineering and mention their interest in the IGERT programs in their application.
