The Department of Environmental Health and Engineering (EHE) is a collaborative hybrid uniquely designed to lead pioneering research and fuel technology translation as it prepares the next generation of scholars to solve critical and complex issues at the interface of public health and engineering.

This cross-divisional department builds on the strengths of the Whiting School’s Geography and Environmental Engineering department and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School’s Environmental Health Sciences department.

EHE’s mission is to improve the health of the Earth and its inhabitants. EHE’s academic and research activities span the science of biological processes, environmental engineering, environmental and health policy, and data analytics. With its accomplished faculty and visionary students, EHE is poised to use its broad and deep expertise to propel discovery and innovation, as well as to inspire and educate scholars of the 21st century and beyond.

EHE offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in environmental engineering, as well as a range of master's and doctoral degrees in public health.
