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).
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.
Sara Kouroupis is currently a master's student in our Electrical and Computer Engineering program and also a staff member in the space department at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.
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.
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.
Fast Company magazine recently named the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory as one of the world's most innovative companies of 2016
for building the bionic man, one arm at a time.
Two government agencies recently identified a serious problem: there is virtually no cost-effective and reliable system available right now that can detect illegal radio frequency transmissions.
As part of his Systems Engineering master's project, current student Robert Mascoe decided to address this problem head on by applying common systems engineering principles (i.e., Need, Requirements, Functions, System Model, and Solution).
The online graduate programs at Johns Hopkins Engineering maintained high rankings from U.S. News & World Report this year.
In the new report, released January 12, 2016, Johns Hopkins Engineering secured #11 in the overall
Best Online Graduate Engineering Programs rankings, up one spot from last year.
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Robert Charles Cammarata II, chair of the Materials Science and Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals.
A well-respected scientist and beloved mentor,
Bob Cammarata died on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 from cancer. He was 58.
As it happens with many medical conditions, doctors often have to rely on their patients’ memories to help them come up with the best treatments.
In the case of asthma and allergies, an allergist might ask his/her patient questions about weekly inhaler use, typical symptoms, the locations and situations where the inhaler was needed, and specific activities that might have triggered the symptoms.
It then falls to the patient to accurately recall the answers.
