Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, the division of the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering that administers part-time and online graduate programs, has announced that students can now complete its Applied Biomedical Engineering program online.
Rachel Sangree, chair of the Civil Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, recently received the 2015 Outstanding Engineering Educator Award from the Maryland section of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
Dr. Sangree has been serving as the chair of the Civil Engineering program since 2010.
Ed Cormier, a long-time instructor for the Systems Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, was recently recognized with a 2014 InfoWorld Technology Leadership Award.
The award honors technology leaders in the categories of business management, IT management, technology creation/enhancement, and technology deployment.
ENGINEERING.com, a website that provides informative and inspiring stories to a worldwide audience of engineers, recently interviewed Dr. Ronald Luman, the program chair for the Systems Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals.
Chum Herdlick, PhD joined Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals in 2008 when he agreed to work with Robert Finlayson to develop an elective course that would highlight systems engineering challenges associated with fielded systems.
The INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook states,
Systems engineering is a profession, a process, and a perspective… Here we will focus on the
Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems.
The INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook further defines the systems engineering perspective in some detail:
Whether you are a systems engineer or practicing systems engineering, the question often is raised:
What textbooks should I have on my shelf? While there are many excellent systems engineering reference texts, the following are among those used in the Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals Systems Engineering program and hence they serve as recommendations for what should be in your library and part of your daily practice.
Johns Hopkins University was once again a proud sponsor of the INCOSE (International Council of Systems Engineers) International Symposium this year. Held in Las Vegas, the conference provided an excellent venue for meetings, technical papers, networking, and sharing the latest advances in the field.
Johns Hopkins hosted many visitors to our exhibit explaining the program and opportunities to advance their skills in systems engineering.
The systems engineer has many responsibilities in the development of a complex system. While there are many subjective and qualitative decisions to make, analytical skills and knowledge are essential to understand the technical work of the team and to comprehend the fundamental physics and math principles that underlie the design and system performance.
We are problems solvers. We are creative and innovative. We like quick gratification. We want to develop products and make things. Sound familiar? From a young age and through much of our educational experiences, we learn that rewards and satisfaction come to those first in line with an answer, even if it might be the wrong one!
