Free Courses for STEM Teachers

Johns Hopkins

Johns Hopkins University’s Engineering for Professionals (EP) program, part of the Whiting School of Engineering, will provide free tuition beginning with the summer term to Maryland public and private high school teachers who want to further their professional development in STEM disciplines.

Engineering for Professionals, which enrolls 2,300 working engineers and scientists annually, will put teachers in touch with expert faculty and allow them to study alongside engineering and science professionals. EP’s 15 graduate programs, in areas such as applied mathematics, environmental science, and biomedical engineering, focus on real-world applications of technology and science. STEM teachers will now have a tuition-free opportunity to learn firsthand how the concepts they teach in their classroom are relevant to future technological advances, and they will be better able to share this knowledge with their own students.

Enrollment in the program is open and rolling. The program is being offered on a first-come, first-served basis with spaces reserved for up to two STEM teachers per course. Teachers may take one tuition-free course each term (summer, fall, and spring) and are subject to the same admission requirements as applicants to all EP programs.

EP offers hundreds of courses ranging from robotics to financial and contract management to molecular biology. Courses are held weekdays in the late afternoons and evenings as well as throughout the day on Saturdays at eight locations in the Baltimore/Washington area. More than 80 courses are offered online. Registration began in late March for summer classes, which begin May 31, 2011.
