We offer online and on-site classes at times that complement the busy schedules of today’s practicing engineers and scientists.

Instructors working at the top of their industries impart cutting-edge knowledge and real-world skills in collaborative, interactive learning environments—providing students with a unique opportunity to forge lasting professional connections as they work, study, and maintain a manageable work-life balance.

As the part-time arm of the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering, and one of the largest continuing education schools in engineering in the United States, we provide our students with the flexibility to earn master’s degrees and certificates while they continue working. A Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals diploma means you learn while you work and can apply what you study immediately.

Johns Hopkins University has provided evening education for the technical workforce for nearly a century. Here at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, we uphold that tradition and now provide even more options for today’s engineers.

I really enjoyed the flexibility of the EP program. While deadlines were set, the week and content was planned out well to make it manageable. I also enjoyed the cohort I was a part of, and learning from them alongside the professors. Everyone came from various backgrounds and brought different skills that made discussions very interesting and fun.
