Students in the Science and Engineering Program are admitted initially by Goucher College, where they will typically spend three years fulfilling general education requirements and completing major requirements for the B.A. degree in biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics or physics. Successful students then complete an additional two years at Johns Hopkins, during which requirements are completed for the bachelor of science degree in one of the following disciplines:
Electrical and computer engineering, which include the fields of communications, control systems, electronics, and digital systems.
Chemical engineering, which relies upon the laws of chemistry, physics, and mathematics to change the structure of chemical substances and purify new substances that are created in the process. There are two chemical engineering tracks. The biomolecular engineering track is dedicated to solving problems and generating products through molecular scale biochemical and biological transformations. This discipline teaches students to integrate modern molecular biology and biochemistry with engineering concepts in the design of novel biological products and processes for biotechnology and bioengineering.
Civil engineering, which reflects the breadth of the engineering disciplines in the planning and designing of buildings, bridges, transportation systems, and environmental programs.
Environmental engineering, which deals with the amelioration of environmental problems.
Materials science and engineering, which is concerned with the structure, properties, performance, processing, and production of all materials.
Mechanical engineering, which deals with the manipulation of energy through useful mechanical devices.
A typical student will complete one year of calculus and one year of physics or chemistry in the first year and MA 221 and 222 and one year of physics or chemistry in the sophomore year. One course per semester should be taken at Hopkins during the student's third year at Goucher, depending on the engineering discipline.
The required courses are as follows:
- MA 170 - Calculus I
- MA 180 - Calculus II
- MA 221 - Linear Algebra
- MA 222 - Calculus III
- MA 231 - Differential Equations with Applications
- CS 116 - Introduction to Computer Science
- PHY 125 - General Physics I
- PHY 126 - General Physics II
- CHE 111 - Principles of Chemistry I
- CHE 112 - Principles of Chemistry I: Laboratory
- CHE 151 - Principles of Chemistry II: Lecture
- CHE 152 - Principles of Chemistry II: Laboratory
