John Hopkins University Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

n 2013, we celebrated the 100th year of electrical engineering at the Johns Hopkins University. We started with a humble beginning in 1887, as an “applied electricity” program offered through the Department of Physics under the guidance of Professor Henry Rowland and eventually became the Electrical Engineering Program as one of three programs within the Department of Engineering in 1913.

Since then our world-renowned professors have been leading research in the areas of medical imaging, speech and language processing and understanding, control theory, intelligent sensors, brain-like computer design, bio-inspired robotics and neuroprosthetics, biophotonics, ultrafast photonics and renewable energy devices, just to name a few.
