Environmental Engineering and Science Program Overview

Acclaimed scientists in the Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Environmental Engineering and Science program teach the proven engineering techniques and management tactics that sharpen your ability to construct and evaluate environmental health risk assessments, craft a data-driven response to climatic trends and extreme events resulting from global climate change, and design solutions for practical fluid mechanics problems. Choose from optional focus areas that are of most interest to you. The program prepares you to:

  • Solve and analyze practical fluid mechanics concerns by applying continuity, momentum, and energy principles and concepts
  • Quantify components of the hydrological cycle
  • Construct and evaluate environmental health risk assessments
  • Master an understanding of the principles of toxicology, dosimetry, and exposure assessment
  • Demonstrate proficiency in environmental project management concepts, principles, and techniques
  • Choose a path that’s right for you in terms of selecting elective courses

It was super convenient to make everything online so that I didn’t need to travel/move to go to school. The ‘weekly’ schedule was also very helpful. As a full-time employee, I could schedule my studies around my schedule and I always felt like I had enough time during the week to complete my assignments.
