Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals launched a redesigned website today that showcases new and enhanced features for prospective students, current students, faculty, and alumni.
Every year, Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals recognizes outstanding faculty members for their contributions in the classroom—both on-site and online.
Congratulations to the dedicated faculty members selected for the 2014 Faculty Awards. They represent a broad spectrum of real-world skills and professional expertise in many fields.
Back by popular demand, Marty Hall's Java-related short course series will run from November 2014 through February. Offered at the Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals building in Elkridge, these non-credit professional training classes are based on some of the most popular courses in the Computer Science program.
Ed Cormier, a long-time instructor for the Systems Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, was recently recognized with a 2014 InfoWorld Technology Leadership Award.
The award honors technology leaders in the categories of business management, IT management, technology creation/enhancement, and technology deployment.
Johns Hopkins University was once again a proud sponsor of the INCOSE (International Council of Systems Engineers) International Symposium this year. Held in Las Vegas, the conference provided an excellent venue for meetings, technical papers, networking, and sharing the latest advances in the field.
Johns Hopkins hosted many visitors to our exhibit explaining the program and opportunities to advance their skills in systems engineering.
ENGINEERING.com, a website that provides informative and inspiring stories to a worldwide audience of engineers, recently interviewed Dr. Ronald Luman, the program chair for the Systems Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals.
The INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook states,
Systems engineering is a profession, a process, and a perspective… Here we will focus on the
Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems.
The INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook further defines the systems engineering perspective in some detail:
The systems engineer has many responsibilities in the development of a complex system. While there are many subjective and qualitative decisions to make, analytical skills and knowledge are essential to understand the technical work of the team and to comprehend the fundamental physics and math principles that underlie the design and system performance.
Practicing systems engineers must be able to learn and adapt in an environment of dynamic and constantly changing challenges. Being a lifelong learner is a critical skill for a systems engineer in a world in which technical knowledge is doubling at a rate that is difficult to measure.
We are problems solvers. We are creative and innovative. We like quick gratification. We want to develop products and make things. Sound familiar? From a young age and through much of our educational experiences, we learn that rewards and satisfaction come to those first in line with an answer, even if it might be the wrong one!
