Start at Home. Finish on Campus.

Today, students are seeking opportunities to earn a master’s degree at a pace and place that is convenient for their lifestyle and career aspirations. Recognizing this high demand for the engineers of tomor­row, Home-to-Hopkins at Johns Hopkins Engineering is a revolutionary way to meet students where they are, offering an opportunity to earn a master’s degree in engineering starting from home.

In the Home-to-Hopkins Master’s Program, students begin by enrolling in two-to-four remote graduate courses from   their home country or location, tapping into the specially designed remote education engineering courses offered by Engineering for Professionals. Then, students spend a full academic year on campus at Johns Hopkins University with an opportu­nity to take courses on our main Homewood campus. This also opens the door for OPT eligibility, as candidates will be full-time residential students at Johns Hopkins.

A special note to Chinese applicants: The Chinese education department (i.e., Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange) evaluates the educational credentials of Chinese citizens returning to China by request, and because a component of the Home-to-Hopkins program is online, it may disqualify you from civil service or other public sector jobs administered by the Chinese government. Different provincial bodies view flexible start programs (that is, residential programs that allow students to begin their coursework online before they arrive in the U.S.) differently and there is no published standard for determining the validity of such flexible start programs.
