The JHU + Amazon Initiative for Interactive AI

A new collaboration will advance machine learning, computer vision, natural language understanding, and speech processing while increasing access to these technologies.

Connect. Collaborate. Innovate.

Partner with us to leverage Hopkins Engineering talent and resources to bring your ideas to life, and provide your team with training opportunities that ensure your competitive edge in the marketplace.

Doctor of Engineering

The D.Eng program is a collaboration between a professional engineer and a participating employer. The program centers on a research project of immediate importance to the student’s company or agency, so there is a direct, applied benefit to the employer.

Research & Development Opportunities

Explore new R&D opportunities with Hopkins Engineering’s 200+ faculty members, our 22 on-site research centers, and dozens of international partner institutions. Enlist our talented and driven students to solve your real-world business challenges by sponsoring design capstone projects.

Educational and Student Engagement Opportunities

We offer professional development for companies of all sizes, including on-site workshops, self-paced courses, and customized for-credit programs. You can also provide learning opportunities to our students—your potential employees—through internships.

Translation and Technology Opportunities

Hopkins Engineering contributes significantly to the overall innovative ecosystem at JHU. Through our Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design and Institute for NanoBioTechnology, among many other efforts, we are advancing emerging technologies to the marketplace.

The Commercialization Academy taught me not only how crucial translation is to the creation of an impactful technology, but also what … is necessary for inventions to actually reach patients.

Agents of Change: Corporate Philanthropy Partners

Become part of a vibrant community of discovery as you strengthen our long-standing tradition of philanthropy. There are many ways you can support our students and inspire innovation, including:

Ideas and companies are born at JHU. As of 2020, the university’s 160+ startups have created hundreds of positions and raised more than $2.3 billion. Hopkins Engineering startups include:

  • EtCH – energy research
  • Galen Robotics – surgical robotics
  • LifeSprout – tissue reconstruction

You can also sponsor or become a mentor for JHU’s FastForward Program, a business accelerator that offers a suite of resources to help bring ideas from the startup to market.

We’re proud to be one of a handful of universities that are “need-blind,” meaning a student’s ability to pay is not considered as part of the admissions process.

Scholarships and fellowships make Hopkins Engineering education possible for students of all backgrounds. When you partner with us in this way, you receive:

  • Enhanced access to top technical talent
  • Greater opportunities to collaborate with faculty members and student teams
  • Higher visibility of your company and its culture

Flexible funding mechanisms include gifts and contracts.

JHU and Hopkins Engineering is always abuzz with activities at our campus, innovation hubs, and field offices, as well as in the community. Our industry partners make educational events like these, and more, possible:

  • Symposiums
  • Lectures
  • Hackathons/Designations
  • Community outreach
  • Engineering student group initiatives
