Graduates of the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals advance their careers in many industries including biopharma, energy, electronics, and green manufacturing for fuels and chemicals.
Program Pages Content
The Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering program gives students the opportunity to develop skills that are fundamental to this expanding field. From biotechnology to nanotechnology and the environment, participants in the program acquire a broad range of advanced engineering and science knowledge from prominent faculty.
Upon completing the degree program, students will:
- Apply chemical engineering principles to obtain a constraints-based mathematical model from a known biochemical pathway.
- Demonstrate knowledge of the various constraints including regulatory requirements that affect drug development.
- Apply chemical engineering knowledge to solve pharmaceutical process problems.
- Develop simplified approximations to solve open-ended complex engineering problems in colloid and interfacial science.
- Develop proficiency in using mathematical tools and formalism to solve well-defined engineering problems in colloid and interfacial science.
- You must meet the general admission requirements that pertain to all master's degree candidates.
- Your prior education must include the following prerequisites: (1) a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, or a closely related technical or scientific discipline; (2) mathematics through integral calculus and differential equations; and (3) coursework in physical chemistry and thermodynamics.
- If your prior education does not include the prerequisites listed above, you may still be admitted under provisional status, followed by full admission once you have completed the missing prerequisites. Missing prerequisites may be completed with Johns Hopkins Engineering (all prerequisites beyond calculus are available) or at another regionally accredited institution.
- When reviewing an application, your academic and professional background will be considered.
- If you are an international student, you may have additional admission requirements.
- Ten courses must be completed within five years.
- The curriculum consists of five recommended core courses and five electives.
- At least four of the courses must be at the 600-level or higher. An elective may be substituted for a required course if the student has previously completed an equivalent graduate-level course.
- Only one C-range grade (C+, C, or C−) can count toward the master’s degree.
- All course selections are subject to advisor approval.
Please refer to the course schedule published each term for exact dates, times, locations, fees, and instructors.
If your prior education does not include the prerequisites listed under Admission Requirements, you may still be admitted under provisional status, followed by full admission once you have completed the missing prerequisites. All prerequisite courses beyond calculus are available at Johns Hopkins Engineering. These courses do not count toward the degree requirements.
RECOMMENDED CORE COURSES
Students should work with an advisor to choose an appropriate selection of courses in keeping with their desired focus area (Biotechnology or Nanotechnology) and career goals. Focus areas do not appear as official designations on a student's transcript or diploma.
ADDITIONAL REPRESENTATIVE COURSES
Additional relevant courses are available from Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and other related majors. The following are presented as aid to students in planning their class schedules. The students are encouraged to seek out other courses of relevance to the Master's degree.
Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals has received a DELTA grant to build Faculty Forward, an intensive faculty development program to train fellows in the latest and most effective online and digital learning tools and techniques. The grant was awarded by JHU's Office of the Provost.
The online programs at the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering are ranked highly according to the latest report from U.S. News & World Report released January 9, 2018.
During the 2017 spring faculty meeting held at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins Engineering honored ten outstanding online and part-time instructors for their dedication in the classroom this past year.
