Andrew Merkle, the mission area executive for Research and Exploratory Development (RED) at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), has been appointed chair of the Engineering for Professionals’ Systems Engineering Program, effective July 1.
We are pleased to announce that Ashutosh Dutta, a senior scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, has been appointed chair of the Engineering for Professionals’ Electrical and Computer Engineering program, effective July 1.
David Porter, an instructor with Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals (EP) Applied Physics program, was selected as a 2020 Blackboard Catalyst Award winner in the Teaching and Learning category for his graduate-level online course, Introduction to Oceanography, offered through EP. A longtime chief scientist in Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory’s Force Projection Sector, he retired from APL in early June.
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.
This Student Handbook is developed to assist in planning your coursework, creating a time frame for graduation, and designing an educational path based on your career needs and aspirations. We are releasing this first edition in support of the 2020–2021 academic year.
Johns Hopkins Engineering has launched one of the first fully online artificial intelligence (AI) master's and certificate programs in the nation. Offered through the Whiting School of Engineering's Engineering for Professionals program, the new program's advanced curriculum comprehensively addresses all aspects of artificial intelligence, preparing practicing scientists and engineers to design and create the essential AI-driven technology of the future.
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.

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.
