The department offers combined Bachelor’s / Master’s in Engineering (BS/MS) programs. For students who are admitted to this program, the two degrees typically require five years total to complete.
Combined bachelor’s/master’s students with the following qualifications will receive a Dean’s Master’s Fellowship during their 5th year that covers 50 percent of tuition:
- full-time, resident status in a fall/spring semester,
- admission to a full-time WSE master’s program, and
- completion of eight full-time semesters of undergraduate study at JHU.
Students who enroll in the combined Bachelor’s/Master’s program or pursue a master’s degree after having earned a the BS in civil engineering or systems engineering at Hopkins may double-count one advanced course (400-level or higher) towards both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees with the permission of the master’s faculty advisor. More detail on double-counting courses can be found here.
Students in their 7th semester (fall) must submit their applications by December 1st to be admitted to the combined BS/MS program in the following 8th (spring) semester. Students that are interested before this time may submit their application as early as their 6th semester. Students are encouraged to discuss interest in the combined program with their advisor during the junior year to make sure they are well positioned to gain maximum benefit from the program. Letters of recommendation, GRE and/or TOEFL/IELTS are not required from current JHU undergraduates applying to this program.
