Founded in 1870, Stevens is a premier private coeducational institution focused on research and entrepreneurship. Stevens is committed to exploring the frontiers of engineering, science, and management.
Stevens creates new knowledge and educates and inspires students to acquire the competencies needed to lead in scientific discovery and in the creation, application and management of technology to solve complex problems and to build new enterprises.
The Institutional Vision:
Stevens believes that solutions to many of the critical problems that face humanity can be found in improved use and understanding of technology, and that it is the duty of the Institute to produce engineers, scientists and business leaders prepared for this challenge. This vision is embodied in a concept referred to as “Technogenesis®,” the process of education that begins with the inception of an idea and proceeds through the engineering and marketing phases of the development of a product or service which germinates from the idea. Inherent in this concept is the requirement that the educational structure and research effort be multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary. It provides researchers with the opportunity to collaborate in research efforts that cut across disciplinary boundaries and also provides the working professional with the broad educational experience that is essential in career enhancement. Stevens demonstrates its commitment through the development of several startup companies, increased patent activity, and the incorporation of Technogenesis philosophies, concepts and techniques in the classroom.
Going forward, Stevens is strongly committed to ensuring the necessary growth to advance our prestige worldwide. Stevens is recognized as a premier technological university noted for its distinctive educational and research programs and the impact it has on issues of national and global significance.
