TAGGED Whiting School of Engineering

From the Dean

Today, as never before, we can see just how critical engineering and engineers are—and will be—to our health, safety, and well-being. I am immensely proud of the way the WSE community has risen to the challenge and is making an impact on the world.

From the Dean

As all engineers know, there is always more work to be done. With you, the WSE community, as our partner, the impact we have will be tremendous.

The Robotic Underground

A robot travels through a tunnel buried deep underground. Using its camera, it searches every nook and cranny in the dark passageway for potential hazards, mapping its path as it goes. It relays this information to its operators in real time. “Nothing like this really exists in current fielded systems for military, law enforcement, or the harsh environments of space,” says Hopkins engineer William Bagley.

WSE by the Numbers

In October, the university’s $6 billion university-wide fundraising campaign officially came to a close. The money raised during the eight-and-a-half-year campaign has been nothing short of transformative.
