In mid-2019, in response to a spiraling national demand for full-stack web developers, the Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals program partnered with 2U, Inc. to launch the Coding Boot Camp. In October 2019, we launched our first Full Stack Web Development cohort. Now, after this inaugural cohort has completed the 24 weeks course and all students have graduated, I wanted to review and acknowledge the high level and wide scope of values that the Boot Camp provides to our students.
The way Andrew Serio saw it, the recent explosion in the popularity and availability of drones for commercial and hobby use and the advances in lightweight optical and hardware materials created a
perfect storm of opportunity that he wanted to take advantage of.
Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals will be one of the first schools in the country to offer a graduate degree in artificial intelligence that can be earned completely online. Beginning this summer, the program, intended primarily for working professionals, will prepare practicing scientists and engineers to design and create the essential AI-driven technology of the future. Enrollment is now open for the summer 2020 session, which begins May 26.
Program is one of the first fully online AI programs in the nation
Amir Bijandi watched in horror as a marine pilot tumbled from a 20-foot ladder and down into a churning sea, where he was almost sucked into a ship's swirling propeller before being rescued. The pilot had been attempting to transfer from a small boat onto the 1-million-ton vessel, so that he could help the captain navigate it into the port of Baltimore. Regulations require that large ships entering local waterways take these expert marine pilots aboard to help avoid navigational hazards.
Faculty Forward offers Engineering for Professionals faculty members the opportunity to learn new and innovative ways to keep students engaged and to enable them to reach their career and educational goals.
Industrial facilities such as refineries and chemical processing plants rely heavily on the use of compressed air for a variety of purposes, such as actuating valves as materials flow through vessels, reactors, and pipes. Compressed air is also used in these facilities to purge enclosures housing electronic equipment of hazardous vapors. The financial and safety risks associated with failure or malfunction of these pneumatic devices are substantial.
