Substantial Mod: Civil Engineering Program Description
Johns Hopkins University (JHU) has submitted a proposal to substantially modify the existing Master of Civil Engineering by adding online instruction.  The online version of the program will prepare graduates for specialized jobs involving all aspects of civil engineering including infrastructure components such as buildings, power plants, roadways, bridges, water supply systems, wastewater systems, and ocean and estuarine structures; as well as the development of less traditional structures and systems, such as mechanical prostheses and space vehicles.  The curriculum has been updated and offers a variety of courses in the areas of coastal engineering, geotechnical engineering and structural engineering.
