Dear Students,

Technological advances occurring at a breathtaking pace are impacting every aspect of society. In this environment, the most successful engineers are those committed to seeking the resources they need to remain at the forefront of their professions. They know it is crucial not only to be well versed in the latest technologies, but also to understand how their fields are evolving, what the consequences of these changes will be, and the knowledge and skills they will need to remain ahead of the curve.

The Whiting School of Engineering provides motivated working engineers around the world with the tools and experiences necessary to advance and deepen their educations in ways that have a direct positive impact on their professional lives.

The breadth of our degree and certificate programs, the real-world experience of our faculty, and our state-of-the-art instructional methods enable us to provide students with unparalleled opportunities—all of which come with the prestige and value of a Johns Hopkins education.

Here, you will learn from instructors who are advancing and redefining their fields, including experienced professionals from the renowned Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, as well as outstanding members of the Johns Hopkins University faculty. These dedicated instructors understand how engineering joins the theoretical with the practical in order to implement solutions to today's grand challenges, and they continually improve and update their course and project content to include the very latest in both the theoretical understanding and the applications of their areas of expertise.

In addition to the tremendous academic opportunities afforded by enrolling in a Johns Hopkins Engineering program, you also will become part of a remarkable community. As a student and, later, as an alumnus, you will be a member of the uniquely successful Johns Hopkins family, connected forever to the traditions and achievements of one of the world's most esteemed academic research institutions.

Congratulations on choosing Johns Hopkins.
