Fifty Whiting School of Engineering students and 15 Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems engineers networked last fall at the company’s second annual student mixer, held on November 2 at the Johns Hopkins Club. Senior representatives from Northrop Grumman, the nation’s third largest defense enterprise, discussed internship and career opportunities with the students, who also had a chance to speak with several of Northrop Grumman’s new hires who are alumni of the Whiting School. The company’s representatives introduced themselves and briefly described their roles. The mixer primarily attracts students from the departments of Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science, and Mechanical Engineering.
As part of its collaboration with the Whiting School, Northrop Grumman sponsors a Senior Design project, two graduate fellowships, and several research projects.
