Beyond the Classroom


At Hopkins Engineering, education happens both inside and outside the classroom. You’ll have a wealth of opportunities to put your engineering coursework into practice as you take part in design teams and student groups, conduct research with world-class faculty members, and gain real-world experience through the Center for Leadership Education.

  • 9:1 undergrad-to-faculty ratio
  • $113.2 million in research funding in FY15
  • 70% of undergrads participate in research

Dare to Design

Throughout your Hopkins education, you’ll have the opportunity to create solutions to real world problems. Hands-on design is a hallmark of the Hopkins Engineering experience. A year-long Senior Design course for undergrads majoring in biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering will test your engineering expertise and stretch your creativity.

Learn to Lead

The groundbreaking science done at Hopkins Engineering has the potential to improve and save millions of lives, but only if it finds its way to the public marketplace. That’s where the Center for Leadership Education comes in. Established to foster the development and growth of an entrepreneurial culture within the Johns Hopkins community, the CLE offers intellectually rigorous and national recognized programs in leadership and professional communication. You’ll be taught and mentored by full-time and part-time faculty members who are professional practitioners in business, marketing, intellectual property, and other relevant fields. Whether you want delve deeply into possible careers, identify and land that perfect internship, or start your own business, the CLE is here to help.

Create Knowledge

At Hopkins, it’s not enough to simply transmit and receive knowledge; we create it. Innovation and discovery are woven into the fabric here, and undergraduates are no exception. You’ll be challenged to find novel answers to the tough questions through a wide variety of undergraduate research experiences. What do you want to explore?

Group On!

Whatever your interest, Hopkins has a student group that will help you explore it, expand it, and even discover new directions and horizons – both locally and internationally. Students involved in Engineers Without Borders and Engineering World Health use their skills to help people in South Africa, Central America, and Tanzania. Closer to home, the Center for Social Concern offers you the chance to participate in 70 different community groups working to effect change locally. It’s amazing what we can accomplish together.
