JHU Systems Engineering Team Supports INCOSE Symposium
December 1, 2013

The JHU systems engineering team had a strong presence at the INCOSE International Symposium. As a bronze sponsor, Johns Hopkins University recognizes the importance of professional volunteer activities for the Whiting School of Engineering and its students.

INCOSE (i.e., the International Council on Systems Engineering) is the professional organization that many JHU graduates join.

Modeling and Simulation Focus Area
December 1, 2013

One of the most important enablers of systems engineering is the use of models and simulations to help elicit system requirements, support the analysis of alternatives, estimate and optimize cost and schedule, predict system performance, and improve systems processes.

Some expect that the traditional systems engineering approach will evolve into a wholly modeling and simulation (M&S) environment.

Let's KISS. What Is All This Systems Stuff?
December 1, 2013

Programs, publications, and professionals use terms like systems thinking, systems science, systems engineering, and even engineering systems. What are they talking about?

Whether you are a student, scientist, engineer, or a normal person it would be nice to know when you hear about systems topics that you have an easy way to understand and compare them. Here you go: (over simplified to be sure)

JHU Systems Institute Developing Curricula for Advanced Degrees
December 1, 2013

The Systems Institute is an interdisciplinary research initiative, focused initially on engineering systems of national importance, including medicine, health care delivery, network-enabled systems, information security, national and civil infrastructure, and education. New educational opportunities are being developed…

David Brown, Recipient of Excellence in Teaching Award
December 1, 2013

David Brown has been the stalwart foundation of the JHU systems engineering program at the HEAT Center, which is located near the Army Proving Grounds in Aberdeen, Maryland.

His breadth of knowledge of the field, extensive professional experience in the application of systems engineering in systems development, and dedication to the success of his students and the systems engineering program led to his receiving the JHU Excellence in Teaching Award.

JHU Systems Engineering Academic Partners
December 1, 2013

For nearly twenty years, the systems engineering program has responded to the needs of organizations within government and industry to provide our high quality graduate program directly to cohorts on site and tailored to meet their unique environment.

This successful model continues to be an attractive way for enterprises to retool the workforce.

The Alexander Kossiakoff Scholarship Award
November 1, 2013

The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, in partnership with the INCOSE Foundation, has announced the opening of applications for this year's Alexander Kossiakoff Scholarship Award.

This scholarship recognizes and encourages students in master's or doctoral programs that are engaged in promising applied systems engineering research.

Johns Hopkins Systems Institute Marks Continued Growth
November 1, 2013

The Systems Institute at Johns Hopkins University was launched in April of 2011. It remains an interdisciplinary research center focused on important engineering systems such as medicine, healthcare delivery, network-enabled systems, information security, national and civil infrastructure, and education.

The overall goals of the Systems Institute are to:

The Course Design Matrix Keeps Courses Relevant
November 1, 2013

The content and examples in a relevant and applied systems engineering academic program should constantly be changing to incorporate best practices and standards in the curriculum.

A core element of the Johns Hopkins Systems Engineering program continuing course refresh is the use of the Course Design Matrix, which was developed by the Center for Learning Design and Technology staff at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals.

Hopkins Systems Engineers Graduate with MSE and MS Degrees
November 1, 2013

A record number of professionals celebrated the completion of their master's programs in systems engineering on the occasion of the celebration of the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering's 100th anniversary. For the first time, Johns Hopkins University awarded two degrees in systems engineering—the Master of Science in Engineering and the Master of Science.
