What else would you like to see here? What questions do you and your classmates ask often? Send your ideas to co-webmaster Mike Bernard.
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.
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, the Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Student Council enables communications between undergraduate students and the faculty.
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.
Students can work right on campus! There are all kinds of paid jobs all over campus, some engineering, many administrative, and all rewarding and fun.
Students have all kinds of questions about how to prepare for life after college.
“Is my major the right one for me?”
“How can I maximize my summer experience through internships?”
“What do I want to do after graduation?”
“Should I go to graduate school?”
Occasionally, students may feel overwhelmed by the rigors of education, especially if coupled with outside stresses like health and family concerns. Johns Hopkins offers a host of resources where you can ask for and receive help.
If you need someone to listen, you can talk to your faculty advisor and Academic Program Manager Mike Bernard. Sometimes, venting to someone may be all you need.
Other times, though, you may want to talk to someone who is trained to help people in distress. View these pages for information and hours:
That big day at the end of a student’s four years at Johns Hopkins culminates in the celebrations of graduation and commencement.
