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 Master’s Diploma Ceremony celebrates all Johns Hopkins Engineering master’s degree and certificate graduates (from both the full-time and part-time programs).

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.
What if the most creative minds channeled their focus into solving the most impactful problems of today? Imagine if we could apply the ingenuity that powers the most profound technology into the most fundamental of all human concerns: health. MedHacks is the start. Join us for our medical hackathon and design competition at the world’s pinnacle of medical care—Johns Hopkins University.
Experts and students in the field of medicine will meet to identify healthcare problems across the globe. Hackers from all disciplines, skill levels, and locations will unite to develop solutions to these problems.
For 36 hours, these hackers and doctors will bring their ideas to fruition. At the end of the event, they will have the opportunity to present their solutions to the judges and the world.Learn More
HopHacks is the biannual hackathon hosted at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. For 36 hours students work in teams of up to four people, to bring a software or hardware idea to life. Last spring, we gathered more than 360 of the most creative and talented students from JHU, MIT, UMD, CMU, Rutgers, NYU, and many more. This September 14 through 16, we expect to host even more students from institutions across the country and welcome you to join the HopHacks community.Learn More
The Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE@APL) program allows highly qualified undergraduate and graduate students from the Whiting School of Engineering and the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences the opportunity to conduct research at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.
At this poster and information session, RISE@APL Scholars will present their research findings, while representatives from APL and Johns Hopkins Engineering will be available to answer students’ questions about the application and selection process.
