Program Overview

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.
