Engineering education at Johns Hopkins began with the establishment on an engineering school in 1913. Throughout its history, the Whiting School has maintained close ties with the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, which has led pioneering education and research since the Faculty of Philosophy was assembled in 1876. The Whiting School of Engineering provides its students with an education and research environment that fosters a lifetime ability to create and apply new knowledge and to contribute to their professions.Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University has a long and prestigious history dating back to the formation of the Department of Engineering in 1913, and eventually the establishment of the Department of Chemical and Gas Engineering in 1937. Today, our department strives to be a leader in research and education in the field of chemical and biomolecular engineering. We challenge our students with a rigorous curriculum containing elements of biology, physics, chemistry, and advanced mathematical and computational methods. Every student also has the opportunity to join any one of 13 different laboratories studying a variety of topics such as electrochemistry, nanotechnology, tissue engineering, drug delivery, green energy, and many more.
The principal criteria for financial aid are academic credentials, language and communication skills, and teaching performance and experience. Financial need is generally not considered, except in the awarding of tuition waivers. For incoming students, the academic credentials evaluation is based on grades, recommendation letters, mathematical background, GRE scores, and TOEFL/IELTS scores. For continuing students, progress in the academic program (grades, requirements satisfied, and research progress) is considered also.
