The Johns Hopkins University's Environmental Engineering and Science program focuses on how physics, chemistry, biology, and geology play a role in today's most pressing environmental challenges.


While refreshing their knowledge of the fundamentals of engineering and natural sciences, students in the Environmental Engineering and Science program at Johns Hopkins University learn cutting-edge methods for treating and responding to modern environmental threats. Instructors, who are experienced professionals from organizations and government agencies nationwide, utilize interactive learning tools and online course delivery to teach students all over the world.

Upon completing the degree program, students will:

  • Recognize the principles of continuity, momentum, and energy as applied to fluid motions and apply these concepts (with appropriate assumptions) to solve and analyze practical fluid mechanics problems.
  • Quantify components of the hydrological cycle in terms of a water balance and apply hydrological concepts and mathematical equations to describe the movement of water within a watershed including groundwater, surface water, and unsaturated zones.
  • Establish a core understanding in the principles of toxicology, dosimetry, and exposure assessment; demonstrate mastery of the risk assessment process and risk management options; construct and evaluate environmental health risk assessments.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in environmental project management concepts, principles, techniques, and knowledge areas; establish a core understanding of the unique aspects of environmental project management.
  • Apply knowledge about water science, institutions, decision-making, and financial matters to the investigation and analysis of multi-objective water quantity and quality management needs; apply theoretical principles and knowledge of historical experiences to envision how water resource management policies and activities should evolve in response to regional climatic trends and extreme events that are anticipated to result from global climate change.
