  • Mission Statement

    The Faculty of the Electrical Engineering program at Johns Hopkins University are committed to providing a rigorous educational experience that prepares students for further study and to professionally and ethically practice engineering in a competitive global environment. The mission of the program is to provide a stimulating and flexible curriculum in fundamental and advanced topics in electrical engineering, basic sciences, mathematics, and humanities, in an environment that fosters the development of analytical, computational, and experimental skills that involve students in design projects and research experiences; and to provide our electrical engineering graduates with the tools, skills, and competencies necessary to understand and apply today’s technologies and become leaders in developing and deploying tomorrow’s technologies.

    Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

    ABET Definition – Program Educational Objectives 

    Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies.

    ECE PEOs

    The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) for electrical engineering (EE) at the Johns Hopkins University describe what EE graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. The PEOs are determined in consultation with the Electrical and Computer Engineering External Advisory Committee and approved by the ECE faculty.

    The educational objectives of the EE program are:

    1. Our graduates will become successful practitioners in engineering and other diverse careers.
    2. Some graduates will pursue advanced degree programs in engineering and other disciplines.

    ECE Student Outcomes

    The program has student outcomes (a) through (k) that prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives:

    (a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

    (b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

    (c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

    (d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

    (e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

    (f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

    (g) an ability to communicate effectively

    (h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global,

    economic, environmental, and societal context

    (i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

    (j) a knowledge of contemporary issues

    (k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

  • Mission Statement

    The Computer Engineering program at Johns Hopkins is supported by faculty in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Computer Science, who are committed to providing a rigorous educational experience that prepares students for further study and to professionally and ethically practice engineering in a competitive global environment. The mission of the program is to provide students with a broad, integrated education in the fundamentals and advanced topics in computer engineering, basic sciences, mathematics, and humanities, in an environment that fosters the development of analytical, computational, and experimental skills, and that involves students in design projects and research experiences, and to provide our computer engineering graduates with the tools, skills and competencies necessary to understand and apply today’s technologies and become leaders in developing and deploying tomorrow’s technologies.

    CE PEOs

    The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) for computer engineering (CE) at the Johns Hopkins University describe what CE graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. The PEOs are determined in consultation with the Electrical and Computer Engineering External Advisory Committee and approved by the ECE faculty.

    The educational objectives of the CE program are:

    1. Our graduates will become successful practitioners in engineering and other diverse careers.
    2. Some graduates will pursue advanced degree programs in engineering and other disciplines.

    Enrollment and Graduation Data

    Computer Engineering
    Academic Year Total Enrollment BS Awarded
    2017 58 17

  • To meet the requirements for the BA degree, the program must include:

    1. Thirty (30) credits of ECE courses. Three (3) credits of computer science may be counted towards this requirement.
    2. Twenty (20) credits of mathematical statistics courses. Typically, these include Calculus I (110.108) and Calculus II (110.109) and Calculus III (110.202), or equivalent, and Linear Algebra (110.201). Elementary or pre-calculus courses such as 110.105 or 550.111-112 are not acceptable.
    3. Eighteen (18) credits of humanities and social sciences courses.
    4. Four (4) writing intensive (W) courses.
    5. Additional credits giving a total of at least one hundred and twenty (120) credits.

    Students should be aware that the BA degree program is not accredited by ABET.

  • A combined bachelor’s/master’s degree provides students with a number of distinct advantages:

    1. Students graduate with a competitive edge in the job market.
    2. Master’s degrees can usually be completed in one year instead of two as undergraduate courses may be counted toward the master’s degree.
    3. After a Johns Hopkins student completes eight semesters and earns a Bachelor’s Degree, the Whiting School of Engineering will pay 50% of the student’s tuition every semester while he or she is a graduate student.

    Eligibility and Application Process

    • This program is available only to undergraduates in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department majors.
    • Students intending to complete the combined degree program apply no later than October 1st of the senior year. However, 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.
    • Admission decisions are made on academic performance that includes undergraduate GPA. It is expected that students will have a 3.5 GPA.
    • To apply for admission, the student must submit a formal online graduate application. In addition, the student will need to present a statement of purpose that describes their career plans and rationale for advanced study at JHU. GRE scores are not required. Two letters of recommendation are required for the application.
    • Inquiries about the application process should be directed to Debbie Race.
