Engineering for Professionals launches iPhone app

Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, part of the Whiting School of Engineering, has created a free iPhone app for students, faculty and staff.

The app, which also works on the iPod Touch and iPad, provides an easy way for affiliates to access the academic calendar, obtain timely information on the EP education centers and link to the EP home page.

Tim Jarrett, advanced development lead for EP, said, “We realize that our students and faculty want to be able to get important, relevant information on their smart phones, and this is our first step to connect them in a mobile environment to EP.” EP plans to add more functions, which will be launched in future versions.

The app was designed by Hollis Ambrose, an EP instructor and a member of the senior professional staff at APL, and EP digital technology staff.
