Celebrate the innovation of Johns Hopkins Engineering students as they showcase their ability to apply knowledge and skills to tackle real-world challenges.
The Whiting School of Engineering’s Design Day is the culmination of the Johns Hopkins translational education experience and provides students with the opportunity to display their research, engineering solutions, and prototypes.
Alumni and guests are welcome at all department events.View the full Design Day schedule!
Noah Cowan will deliver a lecture as part of the Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series. Cowan is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
Neuroscience in The Matrix
Understanding how the nervous system encodes and processes sensory information, transforms it into meaningful intermediate representations in the brain, and computes motor output involves decoding a complex closed-loop control system. Professor Cowan will present research devoted to developing and applying ideas in engineering to decode closed-loop neuromechanical control in animals, including humans.
The Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series began in 1993 as a way to honor newly promoted full professors. Professor Giddens, originator of the series, served as the fifth dean of Engineering at Johns Hopkins.

The Whiting School of Engineering and the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences will hold their fourth Annual Homewood Schools’ Doctoral Hooding Ceremony to honor our students who either have or will be completing their doctoral degrees (summer and fall 2017 and spring 2018). The ceremony will take place from 3 to 6 pm. on Tuesday, May 22, in the Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center, with a reception to follow onsite.
All eligible students who wish to participate in the hooding ceremony—and faculty advisers who plan to hood their students—must register to attend the ceremony.
Visit the PhD Hooding Ceremony website for more information or to register.
The Order of the Engineer was initiated in the United States to foster a spirit of pride and responsibility in the engineering profession, to bridge the gap between training and experience, and to present to the public a visible symbol identifying the engineer. Induction into the Order of the Engineer is by invitation only.
All graduates are invited to attend the universitywide Commencement ceremony at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 24, at Royal Farms Arena. Bachelor’s degree and doctoral candidates will be called to cross the stage at the universitywide ceremony. This is the main ceremony for bachelor’s candidates.

This is the fifth in a series of six-week-long research workshops on Machine Learning for Speech Language and Computer Vision Technology. These workshops bring together diverse “dream teams” of leading professionals, graduate students, and undergraduates, in a truly cooperative, intensive, and substantive effort to advance the state of the science.
These workshops constitute a continuation of the well known Johns Hopkins University summer workshops, and encompasses all areas of human language technology including automatic speech recognition, natural language processing, machine translation, topic detection and tracking, information retrieval and extraction, summarization and question answering, and certain related areas of computer vision, including image understanding and visual scene analysis. These fields share many important algorithmic and statistical approaches, allowing cross-fertilization. Machine learning challenges that arise from these areas are of fundamental scientific interest and are shared with many other fields of science and engineering, such as medical-/bio-informatics and social network analysis.
The primary goals of the workshop series are to advance basic science, attract students to the field and prepare them for research by putting them to work on exciting problems alongside senior researchers in a highly collaborative environment. Creation of research infrastructure and lasting collaborations are secondary goals.
More than 100 high school students will put their skills to the test as they square off in a competition to build the strongest bridge out of a brittle substance: dry spaghetti.
The Spaghetti Bridge Competition is the culmination of the four-week Engineering Innovation program that attracts students from 18 states and 11 countries to Johns Hopkins.
