Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, which administers part-time graduate studies for the university's Whiting School of Engineering, has launched a new master's degree program in space systems engineering.
We know firsthand what skills are required to pursue management and technical leadership roles in the space systems industry, said Joseph Suter, chair of the new part-time Space Systems Engineering program.
The fourth student learning outcome in the Systems Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals states that graduates of our program will be able to,
Exercise their responsibilities in the management of cost-effective systems product development by leading and participating in interdisciplinary teams.
As the field of systems engineering matures, engineers are finding that the complex problems that can effectively be addressed by systems engineering practices have expanded well beyond the traditional defense and aerospace industries.
As you consider seeking education beyond your undergraduate degree, you should have a clear understanding of what you want to do in your future career and learn how a graduate degree will help you reach your goals.
In any successful program, there is someone who is the
go to person, who ties it all together and makes magic happen. For more than fifteen years, Jacqueline Rowe has been that person for the Systems Engineering program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals.
Software systems engineering addresses software development from the early stages of systems specification through maintaining the system while in use. Software engineering applies the computer science theories and methods that underlie computers and networks to solve practical challenges and produce practical software.
Having a systems engineering master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University will by far provide the strongest evidence to any employer that an individual has the qualifications and skills to perform at the highest level in the field. A question often is raised as to whether industry-based credentials offer an employee or an organization added return-on-investment.
The Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering, 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.
In 2008, Jim Conroy took his first class with Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals. It was a basic antennas course taught by Dr. Steven Weiss, an accomplished electrical engineer at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory.
Four years and a lot of calculations later, Conroy was inspired not only to take more advanced antennas courses but also to start pursuing an intensive independent study project with his now friend and mentor, Dr. Weiss.
Humans are a part of every complex system—even autonomous systems involve people. People set the mission, use the products, and maintain the technology. As such, systems engineering requires an understanding of human capabilities and limitations, both as individuals and as social groups. Methods to integrate humans and technology, and measurement of human integration effectiveness and efficiency of that integration, are critical skills in systems engineering.
