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.
