Education

Students who wish to gain a qualification in systems can do so through the departments and programs listed below. Each of these offers systems programs for both undergraduate and graduate students, with the exception of the Engineering for Professionals Program (EPP), which offers part-time masters programs only. Details of the requirements for the Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. can be found by clicking on the links in the table. More information about each department can be found by clicking on its name. 

A list of systems courses currently available in these departments can be found here.

Systems Courses

Below is an approximate list of systems courses available at JHU. Click on the course number to see the course description (where available). Systems is an inherently cross-disciplinary subject and students are encouraged to take courses from outside their home department. Most are available to both graduate students and upper-level undergraduates. These courses are supplemented by systems seminars, which are listed on the homepage. The departmental requirements for a masters or doctorate in systems can be found here. Links to undergraduate focus areas and concentrations are included in the table above
