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.

Instructors in the online and part-time programs at Johns Hopkins Engineering are unique because they bring real-world experience directly from their day jobs into their classes. Students learn from practicing engineers and scientists working at the top of their fields.

This year's award recipients will be further honored at the Whiting School of Engineering Convocation Awards Ceremony set to take place May 8. For more information about each instructor, please click on his or her name.
