Professional Development for Professional Engineers

Technology moves fast. Don’t let your competitors move faster. When you invest in your team’s professional development, you not only help your engineering and scientific teams perform at the cutting edge of today’s best technologies and best practices, but you also boost morale, productivity, and retention.

Employee development opportunities can come in many forms:

  • Comprehensive training and onboarding
  • Regular upskilling and reskilling
  • Tuition assistance for individual employees
  • Industry certification preparation
  • Career pathway planning
  • Fellowships for upcoming talent

Hopkins Engineering offers you multiple ways to leverage our award-winning faculty, innovative curricula, and world-class research facilities for the benefit of your team, from online degree and certificate programs designed for working adults to customized corporate training for engineers and scientists.

Example in Action

Example in action: We teamed with RK&K, a national full-service planning, engineering design, and construction management company, on an exclusive, 23-week project management course.

Career-Advancing Skills With Graduate Certificates

With many requiring five or fewer courses, graduate certificates boost career and technical skills without the need to invest in a complete master’s degree program. Hopkins Engineering offers more than a dozen options, including artificial intelligence and financial risk management.

Employees who already hold graduate engineering or science degrees can add an extra layer of expertise with a post-master’s certificate; we offer more than 20, including data science and environmental planning and management.

Doctor of Engineering Designed for Working Engineers

Invest in talent development and cultivate a culture of learning while solving critical work-related challenges. Put Hopkins Engineering’s resources, research and education to work for you with a doctoral program customized for your organization’s needs.

While earning their employer-supported degree, your team member will integrate what they’re learning into their day-to-day work activities. They’ll also receive mentorship from a Hopkins faculty advisor and a senior-level professional within your company.

Building Your Talent Pipeline and Tomorrow’s Workforce

In addition to professional development for your current team, you can partner with Hopkins Engineering to build your talent pipeline and support education for tomorrow’s engineers and scientists.

Industrial Fellowships

Gain access to top technical talent by sponsoring a graduate, post-graduate or post-doctoral fellow. Along with this also comes opportunities to collaborate with renowned faculty members and their lab teams.

Student Scholarships

Johns Hopkins is proud to be one of a handful of “need-blind” universities, meaning a student’s ability to pay is not considered as part of the admissions process. Your organizational support helps make an engineering education possible for students of all backgrounds.

Partners in Professional Development

Industry leaders who’ve entrusted Hopkins Engineering to provide professional development experiences to their employees include: Booz Allen Hamilton, Leidos, Lockheed Martin, The MITRE Corporation, Northrup Group, Raytheon, RK&K, U.S. Department of Defense.
