Here are the pages written by students of the School of Engineering.

Applied Mathematics and Statistics
“Our faculty advance the art of mathematics inspired by problems arising in engineering and the physical, biological, information, and social sciences. Our graduate and undergraduate programs train future mathematical scientists in the use of probability, statistics, optimization, discrete mathematics, and numerical analysis.”
(department page: http://www.ams.jhu.edu/)

Biomedical Engineering
“Faculty and students in this department have been breaking new ground in biomedical research for over 45 years, and we strive to continue this history of innovation and discovery every day.”
(department page: http://www.bme.jhu.edu/)

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
“Chemical engineering is a broad and versatile discipline in which chemical engineers work on the development and application of processes that change materials either chemically or physically.”
(department page: http://www.jhu.edu/chembe/)

Civil Engineering
The program “educates intellectual leaders of the profession by instilling in them a fundamental understanding of the mathematical principles of physics and nature that underlie engineering science, a practical appreciation of the challenges of creative engineering design, and a sense of responsibility for professional service.”
(department page: http://www.civil.jhu.edu/)

Computer Engineering
“The mission of the program is to provide students with a broad, integrated education in the fundamentals and advanced topics in computer engineering, basic sciences, mathematics, and humanities, in an environment that fosters the development of analytical, computational, and experimental skills.”
(department page: http://www.ece.jhu.edu/)

Computer Integrated Surgery (minor)– coming soon
“Particularly well suited for students interested in computer-integrated surgery issues who are majoring in a variety of disciplines (including biomedical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering), the minor provides formal recognition of the depth and strength of a student’s knowledge of fundamental concepts beyond the minimal requirements of his/her major.”

Computer Science
“Because of its research thrust the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University provides an ideal environment for aspiring and curious undergraduate students and graduate students alike who want to be challenged…We are training the next generation of computer scientists.”
(department page: http://www.cs.jhu.edu/)

Electrical Engineering
“Undergraduate studies are enriched by state-of-the-art laboratories and computing facilities, including a computer-aided design laboratory. Courses are organized into three main areas: computer engineering, systems and signals, and solid state electronics and photonics.”
(department page: http://www.ece.jhu.edu/)

Engineering for Sustainable Development (minor) 
The Minor in Engineering for Sustainable Development exposes engineering students to some of the key issues related to development, methods of information-gathering in diverse and difficult settings, and working effectively with non-engineers on complex problems. We begin with a one-semester core course that surveys the various issues involved, followed by an individually designed but coherent program organized around a particular theme, disciplinary approach or region of the world. We conclude with a one-semester seminar in which students come together and share their experiences and insights from their various program trajectories.”

Engineering Mechanics– coming soon
“This ambitious program provides the knowledge and experience necessary to model and develop complex physical systems, emphasizes solutions in the context of contemporary social and economic issues, and fosters the communication skills required to convey complex ideas to others.”
(department page: http://www.me.jhu.edu/EM_prog_obj.html)

Entrepreneurship and Management (minor)
“The program offers students a diversified learning experience that emphasizes the concepts, practices, and skills necessary for effective leadership as managers and entrepreneurs in the private and public sectors.”
(department page: http://web.jhu.edu/Leadership/html/entrepreneurship_program.html)

Environmental Engineering
“Our core mission is to improve the human condition through the development and promotion of sound, sustainable environmental practices, and to educate future generations of environmental leaders.”
(department page: http://engineering.jhu.edu/~dogee/)

General Engineering
“The bachelor of arts in general engineering is a liberal arts degree which is designed to provide students with both a concentration in some area of humanities or social sciences and the fundamental engineering principles needed to understand the basics of modern technology, innovations and engineering practices.”
(department page: http://engineering.jhu.edu/academics/general-engineering/)

Geography– coming soon
“Geography is as much about people and social processes as it is about places and the physical environment. The geography program explores the interactions among the social, economic, cultural, and natural processes that shape how we make a living on the Earth and how we transform both ourselves and the Earth in so doing.”
(department page: http://engineering.jhu.edu/~dogee/)

Materials Science and Engineering
“Materials scientists seek to understand the connections between the structure of materials and their properties, how particular properties can be achieved by suitable processing, and the applications of materials to modern technologies.”
(department page: http://materials.jhu.edu/)

Mechanical Engineering
“The Department of Mechanical Engineering continues the Johns Hopkins Engineering tradition of providing a quality education to students, preparing them to make substantial contributions to the fields of engineering and science.”
(department page: http://www.me.jhu.edu/)

Robotics (minor) – coming soon
“The faculty of the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR), in collaboration with the academic departments and centers of the Whiting School of Engineering, offers a Robotics Minor in order to provide a structure in which undergraduate students at Johns Hopkins University can advance their knowledge in robotics while receiving recognition on their transcript for this pursuit. The minor is not “owned” by any one department, but rather it is managed by the LCSR itself. Any student from any department within the university can work toward the minor.”(department page: https://www.lcsr.jhu.edu/Robotics_Minor)
