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 engineering—instruction 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
