Preparing graduates for a rapidly changing world

Graduate students work one-on-one with faculty members who are world-renowned leaders in their fields. Our approach is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, and we stress the exploration of innovative and often unconventional ideas.

Our graduates tell us their Hopkins degrees have opened doors to enriching careers in engineering practice, management, industry, research, academia, and government.

We welcome the opportunity to review your graduate application for possible admission to our graduate programs, as our professors will be seeking graduate students in all of our research areas for the fall and spring semesters.

The Graduate Experience

Our Graduate Programs

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The Whiting School of Engineering also offers a part-time Master’s Degree through the Engineering for Professionals programs.

Research and Discovery

You’ll work on interdisciplinary research with pioneers in the field. The Department has a number of widely recognized research strengths, including fluid mechanics, biomechanics, and robotics.

Living in Baltimore

Get off campus and explore! Johns Hopkins University is based in Baltimore, a hub of social, cultural, and economic activity that retains the smalltown, neighborhood feel that earned it the nickname “Charm City.”

Beyond the Lab

Our diverse and active graduate student body hosts lab socials and group outings, competes on intramural sports teams, and gathers weekly for coffee and bagels. You can join several graduate student groups and organizations.

Coming to Hopkins has let me take my career in any direction, whether I want to work in academia, industry, or a national lab. I have all those opportunities, and I’ve been able to work with someone in every one of those disciplines to get a feel for what I want to do.
