Dual Degree Option
Master of Environmental Engineering (Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals) and Flexible MBA (Johns Hopkins Carey Business School)

Students in the Environmental Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals strengthen their backgrounds in quantitative engineering principles while learning about the latest technologies used in the design of collection and treatment processes. Through the use of interactive learning tools and online course delivery, experienced instructors delve into the concepts underlying biological, physical, and chemical treatment, preparing students to design and lead projects in real-world settings.

Upon completing the degree program, students will:

  1. Apply engineering and management solutions to municipal solid waste problems utilizing knowledge of contemporary technologies for the design and operation of landfills, incinerators, transfer stations, and processing facilities.
  2. Apply the basic principles of water and wastewater treatment to the design of major components of drinking water treatment systems, water distribution systems, wastewater collection systems, and wastewater treatment processes.
  3. Develop knowledge of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities.
  4. Evaluate environmental and public health hazards, recommending technologies and approaches to cost effectively eliminate waste and pollution while reducing energy consumption.

Master's DegreeAdmission Requirements

  • The curriculum consists of five courses from the Environmental Engineering program and five electives.
  • At least four courses at the 700-level or above.
  • Electives may be selected from any of the three environmental areas of study: Environmental Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Science, or Environmental Planning and Management, subject to prerequisite restrictions.
  • Only one grade of C may count toward the master's degree.
  • All course selections are subject to advisor approval.
  • The Principles of Environmental Engineering (575.404) course is required of all degree students who do not possess an undergraduate degree in Environmental Engineering, Science, and Management or a related discipline.
  • Any deviation from this program, including transfer of courses and any other requisites specified in the student's admission letter, will not be approved by the program chair.

Graduate CertificateAdmission Requirements

  • You must meet the general admission requirements that pertain to all post-master's certificate candidates.
  • If you decide to pursue the full master's degree, all courses will apply to the master's degree provided they meet program requirements and fall within a five-year time limit. The student must declare their intention prior to the completing the certificate.
  • If you are an international student, you may have additional admission requirements.

Certificate Requirements

  • Six courses must be completed within three years.

Post-Master's CertificateAdmission Requirements

Certificate Requirements

  • Six courses must be completed within three years.
  • At least three of the six courses must be taken within the Environmental Engineering program and at least three at the 700-level or higher.
  • Only grades of B− or above can count toward the post-master's certificate.
  • All course selections are subject to advisor approval.
  • Any deviation from this program, including transfer of courses and any other requisites specified in the student's admission letter, will not be approved by the program chair.

Dual Degree OptionAdmission Requirements

  • You must satisfy the admission requirements of both the Environmental Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals and the Flexible Master of Business Administration program at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School.
  • Each school decides on admission separately.
  • Applicants applying for the dual degree should complete the Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals application, and submit supporting documents to Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals.
  • If you are an international student, you may have additional admission requirements.

Dual Degree Requirements

  • Students must successfully complete the requirements for both programs in order to be awarded the two degrees.
  • For the Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals degree, students will be able to count two Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals course equivalents of academic credit from their Carey MBA toward their ten-course Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals degree requirements.
  • For the MBA degree, students will be able to count the academic equivalent of twelve credits from their Engineering for Professionals program toward the Carey fifty-four-credit MBA program.
  • By the end of the dual degree program, students will have completed sixty-six credits (twenty-eight courses) rather than eighty-four credits (thirty-six courses) that would otherwise be required when pursuing these two programs independently.
  • Students in this program will complete the Master of Environmental Engineering online.
  • All course selections are subject to advisor approval.
