engineering program at Hopkins is widely acknowledged to be one
of the best in the world for one simple reason - the high value
that is placed on collegiality. The close-knit community of faculty,
students and staff creates a unique environment in which world-class
research and education flourish.
This emphasis on cooperation and excellence has led to unusually
open, reciprocally helpful relationships between senior faculty,
junior faculty and students. The shared passion to create new knowledge
and improve human health has resulted in a team mentality that encourages
creativity, innovation and long-term collaborations. There is a
feeling that nothing is impossible, and a willingness to see the
potential in people and ideas.
