Immunoengineering harnesses the power of the immune system to treat diseases, such as cancer, and to promote tissue regeneration for improved healing and repair. In our program, we apply engineering methods to quantitatively understand the immune system in clinically-relevant contexts to improve existing therapies and to develop new ones. Our program requires a modestly-sized core curriculum supplemented by other courses and research opportunities offered across Johns Hopkins’ world-leading, multidisciplinary immunotherapy efforts.
Below, you will find a suggested list of courses to help you in your course planning. Your academic interests determine the remaining courses (focus area electives). You will meet with the faculty lead of your chosen focus area to determine your course plan. The program administrator will provide additional advisement and course approval. Please note that all listed courses are suggested and may not always be offered. Course offerings are subject to change from semester-to-semester.
- Advanced Topics in Regenerative and Immune Engineering (EN.580.752)
- Cellular Engineering (EN.580.641)
- Molecular Immunoengineering (EN.580.646)
- Tissue Engineering (EN.580.642)
Any relevant science, technology, engineering, or math courses (based on consultation with your faculty advisor) offered at Johns Hopkins must be taken to complete the 30 credit hours required for the MSE degree. In general, the electives are expected to complement the IE focus track curriculum or a student’s research programs (see below). In many cases, the core courses and electives listed for the Translational & Cell Engineering track are appropriate for IE students.
