Civil Engineering Program Overview

Civil engineering is the world’s oldest engineering discipline, yet increasing public demands on structures and systems, as well as changes in society’s economic and environmental attitudes, mean that today’s civil engineer regularly faces new challenges. Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Civil Engineering program provides graduate instruction in the fields of structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, ocean and coastal engineering, and preservation engineeringinstruction aimed at helping you meet these new challenges.

Designed specifically for working professionals, the civil engineering program features practice-oriented courses in small classes taught by industry and academic experts who facilitate engaging learning opportunities and provide personalized attention. As a student, you can focus your studies in geotechnical engineering, ocean and coastal engineering, structural engineering, or a general civil engineering course of study. You can also choose to engage in an independent study under the guidance of an instructor.

As a student, you will gain a firm understanding of how to:

  • Apply mathematics, science, and engineering principles
  • Identify, formulate, and solve solve complex problems in civil engineering
  • Use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

Master’s Focus Areas

  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Ocean and Coastal Engineering
  • Structural Engineering

Degree Options

We offer two program options for Civil Engineering; you can earn a Master of Science in Civil Engineering or a graduate certificate.

I really enjoyed my time in the EP program. It was flexible, I was always able to find a course I could take, and most importantly, I was able to finish my degree while moving from Baltimore to Denver without interruption. I felt that for the most part, the courses were well structured to accommodate working professionals. I rarely felt as if I was in over my head. I feel that this was a great career and professional move and I would recommend it to anyone seeking to further their technical education.
