The Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University

Innovative Organizations - 2020

Housed in the Johns Hopkins Department of Civil and Systems Engineering, the Center for Systems Science and Engineering takes a multidisciplinary approach to modeling, understanding, and optimizing systems of local, national, and global importance. These include medicine, health care delivery, national infrastructure, information security, disaster response, and education.

In addition to faculty from across multiple engineering departments, CSSE utilizes the expertise of researchers from the schools of Medicine, Public Health, Nursing, Arts and Sciences, Business, and Education; and from JHU’s Applied Physics Laboratory, already one of the nation’s leading centers of systems engineering.

In 2020, with cases of COVID-19 spreading throughout the world, the Center for Systems Science and Engineering introduced their COVID-19 dashboard, which quickly became the source of truth for crucial information about cases by country, the number of patients who recovered and the tally of global deaths.
