Applied Physics Program Overview

The Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Applied Physics graduate program—one of the few available in the nation—offers a wide variety of courses that will enrich your experience as an engineer and will prepare you for exciting careers in the research and development of cutting-edge technology. Taught by notable scientists from the Johns Hopkins Physics Lab, NASA, and the Naval Research Laboratory, you can focus on a wide range of topics, including optics, interstellar space, ocean science, solid-state physics, and more.

The program prepares you to:

  • Master mathematical methods that are essential to the fields of applied physics and engineering, including integral transforms, ODEs, complex analysis, PDEs, and boundary value problems.
  • Solve practical problems using Maxwell’s Equations and classical electrodynamics, such that static and time-varying fields in free space and media, conservation laws, and gauge invariance can be investigated.
  • Establish a firm understanding of the mathematical foundation of quantum mechanics.
  • Select courses to tailor your degree and gain the knowledge that works best for you.
