Develop the multidisciplinary analytical, technical, and engineering design skills necessary to innovate and create, from computer engineering to satellite communications—instructed by a professor involved in NASA’s New Horizons Pluto mission—to systems and controls. Ranked the #5 best online master's in electrical engineering programs by U.S. News & World Report. The Electrical and Computer Engineering program is offered at Johns Hopkins University.


Electrical and Computer Engineering Program at Johns Hopkins University Overview

Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Electrical and Computer Engineering online, part-time master’s program is one of the largest in the country. And our highly regarded program is one of the best, ranked #5 by U.S. News & World Report.

We value the opportunity to create a hands-on experience. That’s why each student can remotely connect to equipment on campus to conduct measurements. We offer a wide breadth of courses to align with your area of expertise and interests, from computer engineering to satellite communications (instructed by a professor involved in NASA’s New Horizons Pluto mission) to systems and controls.

From a thorough grounding in foundational topics such as electromagnetics, electronic devices, and systems theory, to building the hardware and software architectures of next-generation mobile platforms, students gain valuable skills and knowledge and will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the ability to apply advanced electrical and computer engineering theory and methods to translate functional system descriptions into component-level designs and structures.
  • Demonstrate the ability to design and conduct experiments or simulations, as well as analyze and interpret the results.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in the use of advanced mathematical and analytical techniques and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
