Civil Engineering Program Description
Johns Hopkins University (JHU) has submitted a proposal to substantially modify theexisting Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Civil Engineering and add online instruction.  The certificate program operates within the Masters of Civil Engineering and draws all courses from the master’s curriculum.  The 18-credit hour certificate is designed to provide students with a balance of theory and practice, knowledge and skills necessary to enhance their effectiveness in a complex and rapidly evolving technological and organizational environment. The program broadens and strengthens students’ understanding of the traditional fundamentals and introduces them to contemporary applications and technologies.  Students who complete the certificate will be prepared for specialized jobs involving all aspects of civil engineering based on studies in two focus areas:  geotechnical engineering and structural engineering.
