High-Value Visits

Spring 2023

Undergraduates from around the globe visited the Whiting School of Engineering in mid-March to take part in the inaugural 2023 Hopkins Engineering Exploratory Program (HEEP), a weeklong initiative aimed at providing exceptionally accomplished international students with the chance to experience Johns Hopkins and learn about the university’s master’s degree programs, renowned faculty, and cutting-edge research, and the abundant cultural opportunities Johns Hopkins students enjoy in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. region.

“Our goal was to allow students to immerse themselves in all that the Whiting School has to offer graduate students as well as provide them with guidance on how to apply and facilitate their interactions with current students and faculty,” says Sri Sarma, vice dean for graduate education and lifelong learning at the Whiting School and associate professor of biomedical engineering.

Among the program’s highlights was the faculty lecture series, covering research topics ranging from artificial intelligence and engineering in medicine and health care to engineering management and JHU’s COVID-19 dashboard.

Domestic students already admitted to master’s degree programs in mechanical engineering also attended the program.
