Stevens Institute of Technology

Stevens Institute of Technology is a premier technological research university that is focused on advancing technology and science to solve the world's most pressing challenges and transform our future. Built on a legacy of innovation since its founding in 1870, Stevens alumni, faculty and students have earned global recognition as tech pioneers, CEOs and game-changers for accomplishments ranging from the invention of the IMAP email protocol and bubble wrap to the award-winning storm-resistant solar home SURE HOUSE, which was designed and built by students and won first place in the 2015 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. Innovation at Stevens extends well beyond our long tradition of engineering excellence. The university's technology orientation informs highly relevant, forward-thinking undergraduate and graduate programs that produce highly sought-after graduates (96 percent receive job offers, graduate school acceptances or attain other successful outcomes within six months of graduating). Stevens graduates also advance quickly in the workplace -- earning some of the very highest starting and mid-career salaries in the nation, as well as top ROI (return on investment). Our technology orientation infuses the School of Business, with freshman-year training in entrepreneurial techniques and tools as well as access to leading-edge financial analytics and data visualization laboratories. Technology also infuses our humanities, arts and social sciences programs, where Stevens students and faculty draw upon diverse perspectives to create new understanding of the humanities and develop remarkable music, visual, virtual and other technologies. Our intimate size fosters student connection and collaboration with classmates, faculty, researchers and leadership, placing a true focus on student success. This advantageous size, combined with our collaborative and problem-solving orientation, confers the university with the agility to rapidly develop and launch new academic programs in response to the pressing needs of business, industry and society - one reason employers recruit so heavily at Stevens (more than 330 employers recruited on campus last year). A robust internship and cooperative education program and a career center that has been recognized as among the very best in the nation also give Stevens students competitive advantages in a highly competitive job market. Our graduates are highly skilled at creating solutions at the intersections of disciplines; they begin new careers prepared to hit the ground running and lead immediately in today's complex, cross-functional, highly technical work environment. Stevens students are extremely bright, motivated and involved: they embrace possibility, chase opportunity and welcome challenges. This spirit extends to life both on and off campus, from the performing arts to community service, from club and varsity sports to entrepreneurial ventures that take root as viable businesses and services regionally and nationally. Located in Hoboken, New Jersey - one of the nation's top-rated college towns - Stevens offers a mix of cosmopolitan life, history, riverside parks, skyline views and easy access to the excitement of New York City, just 10 minutes away by train or ferry. From clubs, museums, culture and restaurants to internships and job offers in the world's financial and media capital, Stevens students enjoy access to tremendous opportunity throughout their academic careers. With more than 100 student clubs and organizations, 26 NCAA Division III athletics teams and a vibrant, exciting city to call home, Stevens students have it all at their fingertips.
