Our faculty welcomes undergraduate student participation in research, which greatly enhances your educational experience beyond coursework. Opportunities are available during the academic semesters, intersession, and summer through independent study and research courses or through paid research positions.
To find Undergraduate Research opportunities in Mechanical Engineering, contact the faculty directly to ask.
The Undergraduate Academic Advising Manual describes undergraduate research opportunities.
ForagerOne assists undergraduate students in finding and contacting the right faculty mentors through a database of faculty profiles and a guided application process. Students can also find specific open projects that faculty are recruiting for and apply directly to join them.
The department receives information on all kinds of Research Experiences for Undergrads (REUs) and Summer Research opportunities from universities all over the United States and beyond. Watch your e-mail for those opportunities.
MUSC meets several times a year to discuss issues such as the way courses are taught, availability of courses, advising, and department support.
Two student representatives from each class are elected by their colleagues during the Fall semester. The minutes from MUSC meetings are distributed to faculty, and the issues presented by the students are brought up for discussion and action at faculty meetings.
MUSC welcomes your thoughts, ideas, and concerns. Contact MUSC by e-mail.

The Senior Design Project, a unique two-semester course, is the capstone of Johns Hopkins’ Mechanical Engineering program. In the class, students, working in small teams, tackle specific design challenges presented by industry, government, and non-profit organizations. It is the most significant (and popular) course in the entire degree program.
Info for Juniors – you will begin preparing for the Senior Design experience in your junior year, as you will form teams then. Watch for announcements from the course instructor.
That big day at the end of a student’s four years at Johns Hopkins culminates in the celebrations of graduation and commencement.
