Electrical and Computer Engineering (Fall 2019 Virtual Information Session)


Whether you work in industry, government,
private research and development or the military, advanced studies can take your career in engineering
to greater heights. We’re delighted you’ve chosen to learn more about how Johns Hopkins
Engineering can help you accomplish your goals. The Engineering for Professionals online,
part-time program at Johns Hopkins Engineering offers thoughtfully designed courses that
enhance your knowledge and build the essential skills to help you excel in your career. Our top-ranked programs are academically rigorous.
And, you will engage in meaningful learning interactions with instructors and classmates. The Johns Hopkins University’s Electrical
and Computer Engineering program will equip you with the methods and tools you need to
develop systems for communication, computation, information transformation, power generation
and transmission, measurement, and control. A key benefit of the program is that you’ll
learn from faculty who are top-level, engineers who are currently developing technical solutions
to address the current and emerging issues in industry and government. The Electrical & Computer Engineering program
offers three paths to earn a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Graduate
Certificate, or Post-Master’s Certificate. You can take courses online, onsite, or a
hybrid of online and on-site. Onsite courses are held at the Johns Hopkins
Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland. The Master of Science in Electrical and Computer
Engineering requires the successful completion of 10 courses to earn the degree. You will
have up to 5 years to complete the coursework. The programs requires 7 Electrical and Computer
Engineering courses and 3 elective courses. This structure gives you the flexibility to
design your learning experience. The graduate certificate requires the successful
completion of 5 courses in up to 3 years. The graduate certificate requires 4-5 Electrical
and Computer Engineering courses and no more than 1 elective courses. The post-masters certificate requires 4-6
Electrical and Computer Engineering courses and no more than 2 elective courses. We offer more than 40 online courses, many
with virtual labs. There are 2 methods for which we can incorporate
laboratories into our online courses. The first method is we mail students a laboratory
kit, which are typically used in our computer engineering courses.
Prior to the start of the semester, you are mailed a kit, and work with that development
board throughout the semester, doing hands-on labs projects. The 2nd method is a technology that we have
developed to enable you to virtually access larger instrumentation located at the Applied
Physics Laboratory. You will be able to interface to the equipment, change instrument settings,
collect data, look at different test points, and measure with a real instrument. This collaboration
with one of the most well-respected organizations in the industry gives our students an unparalleled,
applicable learning experience. The focus areas offered in the ECE program
represent technology groupings that are relevant for students with interests in the selected
areas. You are not required to choose a focus area
to follow. They only serve as an aid in planning course schedules. General admissions and program requirements
must be met to be admitted into the Electrical and Computer Engineering. There are four general requirements. You must:
Hold a degree in electrical and/or computer engineering issued by a program accredited
by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. 
Those who majored in a related science or engineering field may also be accepted as
candidates, provided their background is judged by the admissions committee to be equivalent
to the noted requirements. Have a grade point average of at least a 3.0
in the latter half of your undergraduate studies. Submit transcripts from all college studies.
Unofficial transcripts are accepted to apply. However, official transcripts must be submitted
before you can enroll in any course. GRE scores are not required. The Electrical and Computer Engineering programs
require your prior education include the listed prerequisites.
If prior education does not include the prerequisites, you may be admitted under provisional status,
followed by full admission once you have completed the required prerequisites. Prerequisites
may be taken at Johns Hopkins University or any other accredited college or university.
We take a holistic approach when reviewing applications, considering both academic background
and work experience. Our goal is to fully prepare you to flourish
as an Electrical and Computer Engineering professional. Upon completing the degree programs,
you will have mastered the ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex problems in your
field. Johns Hopkins University was the nation’s
first research university, founded for the express purpose of putting discovery and knowledge
to work for the good of humanity. Today, we are a top-tier university and remain committed
to academic excellence and pioneering research. As a student, you’ll have complete access
to a host of digital and technical resources, academic and career advising, and support
services, from across the university. Every student gets the full value and recognition
of a Johns Hopkins Engineering education. Online students in the Engineering for Professionals
program receive the same Johns Hopkins University credentials and diploma as those who study
on campus and walk across the stage on graduation day! We look forward to supporting your education
and career goals and seeing you in our virtual classrooms! For more information and to apply, go to ep.jhu.edu/apply.
