Our goal at Johns Hopkins Engineering is to provide a strong program in the major areas of civil and systems engineering. Our curriculum provides a firm grounding in the principles and practice of civil engineering while emphasizing creative problem-solving skills, teamwork, and independent inquiry.
Building on this foundation, our students pursue a wide array of research and professional experiences that provide exposure to more highly specialized subject matter. Our alumni have successful careers in a variety of fields, including academia, civil engineering practice, law, medicine and finance.
With opportunities ranging from using a variety of skills to address a real-life issue during the senior design course to connecting with employers via our annual CaSE career fair, CaSE undergraduates are prepared for the workforce, wherever that may be.
BS - Civil Engineering
The Bachelor of Science program in civil engineering will not only provide students historical context to what civil engineering has meant in the past, but more importantly, what it will mean to our future. Students will gain knowledge in the principles and practice of civil engineering while utilizing creative problem-solving skills, teamwork, and independent inquiry in research and professional scenarios.
BS - Systems Engineering
Venturing beyond the confines of traditional engineering coursework, the Bachelor of Science degree in systems engineering is trans-disciplinary and collaborative, connecting mathematics, engineering, social and physical sciences, and medicine.
Typically require five years total to complete, the BS/MS program allows motivated students to receive both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree from the department.
Minor in Civil Engineering
The minor in civil engineering benefits non-departmental majors who would like an overview of the principles of civil engineering.
The Undergraduate Experience
Student Groups and Clubs
Connect to the Hopkins community and develop your leadership skills by joining engineering student groups. At Johns Hopkins University, about 80 percent of students are involved in one or more of the 350+ student organizations.
All students are strongly encouraged to participate in undergraduate research. Given the small number of students, all interested students typically can be readily placed. The rewards are significant; research itself can be addictive and intensely rewarding as you make the transition from knowledge acquisition to knowledge creation.
