Materials Science and Engineering
The Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Materials Science and Engineering program gives working engineers the tools they need to develop and improve the materials that impact everyday life.
The curriculum takes a close look at the connections between materials’ structure and performance, how particular properties can be achieved through state-of-the-art processing, and how newly engineered materials can be used in modern technologies. After studying with instructors working at the top of their fields, students are prepared to tackle today’s most pressing questions in nanotechnology, electrochemistry, biomaterials, and more.
- Master of Materials Science and Engineering
- Concentration: Nanotechnology
- Focus Areas: Biotechnology; or Nanomaterials
The Master of Materials Science and Engineering degree is awarded after successful completion of ten one-term courses within five years. All students are required to take 515.401 Structure and Properties of Materials and 515.402 Thermodynamics and Kinetics. Of the remaining eight electives, at least one must be 600 level or higher. Courses offered by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering are acceptable as electives. Students interested in taking the 515.730/731 Materials Science and Engineering Project must get prior approval from the departmental coordinator and be assigned an advisor.
