Mechanical Engineering Program Overview

Johns Hopkins Mechanical Engineering online master’s program is ranked one of the best in the country, holding the #4 spot among programs ranked by U.S. News & World Report. Instructors are executive-level mechanical engineers who deepen understanding of fundamentals and introduce modern technologies. As a student, you will learn to use advanced analysis techniques, translate mechanical engineering problems into a quantitative form, and analyze experiments. Take elective courses from other Engineering for Professionals programs—giving you the control and flexibility to gain the precise knowledge you seek.

Students will be able to:

  • Master advanced techniques of analysis and modern tools.
  • Translate practical mechanical engineering problems into a quantitative form amenable, as appropriate, to analytical or numerical solution, or to experimental investigation.
  • Analyze, interpret, and apply the information obtained by experiment, computation or analysis, or available in the literature.
  • Choose a specialization that best fit your area of interest.
  • Apply knowledge, facts, and theories immediately in your work.
