While earning his master's degree in the Electrical and Computer Engineering program last year, Bill Haris embarked on an independent study project in which he developed a new kind of prosthetic limb.
For athletes in certain sports, access to real, practical training can very much depend on the season. Take beach volleyball, for example. Or alpine racing. For the first, you'll need summer. For the second, typically winter is best.
During the 2017 spring faculty meeting held at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins Engineering honored ten outstanding online and part-time instructors for their dedication in the classroom this past year.
We can all agree that growing our own fruits and vegetables is a great way to save money and maintain a healthy diet. So why isn't gardening more popular?
In the latest rankings from U.S. News & World Report, released January 10, 2017, the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering maintained its spot in the top twenty-five schools in the country in the categories of Best Online Graduate Engineering Programs and Best Online Graduate Computer...
Inspecting a crash, a spill, or a bomb threat on our railways is dangerous work, and can involve putting first responders in harm's way. Thankfully, the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory developed a new solution.
On September 12, 2008, a Metrolink commuter train and a freight train collided in Los Angeles, California, killing twenty-five people and injuring many more. A month later, President George W. Bush singed into law the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008.
Johns Hopkins Engineering recently launched a new master's degree program in data science that students can complete online.
The curriculum blends computer science and applied mathematics, and prepares students to analyze relationships in complicated data sets. To earn the master's degree, students will complete ten courses in subjects like data visualization, cloud computing, and statistical models.
At one time, there were about 10,000 covered wooden truss bridges throughout the United States. Rachel Sangree, chair of the part-time Civil Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering, believes they still hold valuable lessons for students.
Satellites placed in geostationary Earth orbits are necessary for everything from financial transactions to weather forecasting.
As a quick definition, GEOs are the orbits that hover above the equator. They move in sync with the Earth's rotation. So when an object (i.e., a man-made satellite) is placed into a GEO, it appears motionless to those of us here on the ground.
