Flexible curriculum, world-class instruction, and one-on-one advising
A major effort of the department is directed toward the creation of a stimulating intellectual environment in which both undergraduate and graduate students can develop to their maximum potential.
Faculty members encourage undergraduate students to participate in both fundamental and applied research along with the graduate students. In most junior and senior undergraduate classes, and in graduate classes, small enrollments permit close contact with faculty members. Students have excellent opportunities to participate actively in the classroom and laboratories, and to follow special interests within a subject area.
Explore Our Programs
One of the most distinctive features of undergraduate education at Johns Hopkins is the access that all undergraduates have to the research laboratories of some of the most outstanding faculty members in the world. Through this contact with our faculty, students are able to develop skills not easily taught in the classroom.
We offer highly-ranked graduate programs designed to prepare students for a rapidly changing world. Graduate students work on problems defining the state-of-the-art, alongside one-on-one faculty who are world-renowned leaders in their fields.
Combined Bachelor’s/Master’s Program
A combined BS/MSE in Mechanical Engineering allows students to earn a graduate degree in five years and increase their
earning power after graduation.
Living in Baltimore
Baltimore is where JHU students grow and build their lives. From popular tourist attractions—the Inner Harbor, the National Aquarium, and Fort McHenry (birthplace of “The Star Spangled Banner”)—to more off-the-beaten-path destinations—the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum or the tranquil Sherwood Gardens—there is always something new to discover.
Future leaders in mechanical engineering
We are committed to creating a vibrant culture of scholarship, innovation, and leadership within our department.
