We make hands-on learning a priority.

The undergraduate educational mission of Johns Hopkins Mechanical Engineering is to provide an excellent mechanical engineering curriculum with hands-on design and research experiences, so that our students are prepared to become the next generation of leaders in mechanical engineering.

Our mechanical engineering students are exposed to many exciting career possibilities, including robotics, aerospace, advanced manufacturing, biomechanics, and energy systems.

The Undergraduate Experience

Degree Options

You have options! We offer two majors and two tracks, and minors in other disciplines are available in a variety of specialties. Hear from Academic Program Manager Mike Bernard about our undergraduate majors and tracks.

Student Groups and Clubs

Connect to the Hopkins community and develop your leadership skills by joining engineering student groups. At Johns Hopkins University, about 80 percent of students are involved in one or more of our 350+ student organizations.

Senior Design

The capstone of the Mechanical Engineering program is a unique two-semester sequence in design. Through the 530.403 and 530.404 Senior Design courses, students work in small teams on real projects sponsored by local industry, government, or non-profit organizations.

Research Opportunities

One of the most distinctive features of Johns Hopkins is the access that all undergraduates have to the research laboratories of some of the leading researchers in the world. Current student work ranges from assisting our faculty with remotely piloted deep-sea robots, to the design of advanced medical equipment for minimally invasive surgery.

For Inquiries and to Arrange Prospective Student Visits

We welcome your inquiries! Prospective undergraduate student and family in-person visits are temporarily unavailable. The academic staff will be working completely remotely until at least March 2024 as the department's administrative offices are being renovated. Remote visits by Zoom are available at a mutually agreeable time between visitors and staff.

After the administrative offices are reopened, we will welcome pre-arranged visits that will include a visit with the academic staff and a lab tour. Walk-in visits might be able to be accommodated after reopening, assuming staff are available at the time of the walk-in.
