Civil Engineering Chair on the Value of Covered Bridges
July 13, 2016

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.

Systems Engineering Seminar: Creating a Better System to Monitor Satellites
July 11, 2016

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.

Systems Engineering Seminar: Protecting Soldiers Who Investigate Blast Sites
June 10, 2016

Incidents involving roadside and under-road improvised explosive devices remain a serious threat. As the operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have shown, IED blasts often result in horrific injuries, fatalities, and damages to military vehicles.

Great instructor. Very approachable, very knowledgeable.

This is just one of many positive comments made by students about Erin Hein, an instructor in our Systems Engineering program.

Johns Hopkins Launches New Online Master's Degree in Financial Mathematics
April 29, 2016

Johns Hopkins Engineering recently launched a new master's degree program in financial mathematics that can be completed online.

The new program is accepting applications from students wanting to start as early as the summer 2016 term. They will ultimately complete ten online courses in subjects like financial derivatives, risk management, data analysis, Monte Carlo methods, and quantitative portfolio theory.

Systems Engineering Seminar: Detecting Warranty Fraud
April 7, 2016

Warranty fraud has become a big problem in recent years, and when fraudulent claims go undetected, there are negative effects for both companies and consumers (i.e., billions of dollars are lost and warranty prices go up).

Top Instructors Receive 2016 Faculty Awards
April 5, 2016

During a faculty meeting held at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory on March 16, we honored twelve Johns Hopkins Engineering instructors for their dedication and innovation in the classroom.

Balancing teaching with their own careers, our instructors work tirelessly to provide an educational experience that is both challenging and highly relevant for today's students.

Prosperetti Selected for Applied Mechanics Award
March 7, 2016

Andrea Prosperetti, chair of the part-time Mechanical Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering, recently received the 2016 Ted Belytschko Applied Mechanics Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

The award recognizes significant contributions in the practice of engineering mechanics.

Systems Engineering Seminar: Real-Time Tumor Tracking
March 7, 2016

How can engineers improve cancer treatment? Recent graduate Erich Walker has a big idea: let's use systems engineering principles to help make external beam radiation therapy more effective.

External beam radiation therapy, or EBRT, is a common type of cancer therapy that directs a beam of radiation from outside the body at the cancerous tissues inside the body.
