In 2019, with the goal of reinventing civil engineering at a national scale, the Department of Civil Engineering at Johns Hopkins University was renamed the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering.
What’s the same?
The department remains dedicated to providing a high-quality, comprehensive education in which leading research in the areas of mechanics of materials, structures, and systems is cross-fertilized with research from other fields.
What impact will these changes have?
As the first program of its kind, the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering will not only set a new national standard for the field of civil engineering, but will also provide students with a highly collaborative degree program, expand faculty funding and project opportunities, and increase the potential for partnerships both within and outside the university.
