Seven thousand students, 300 faculty. A jewel of a campus, besides one amazing city, in a top-3 college town. Countless ideas. Infinite questions. And answers that matter. This is Stevens.
Passionate for the (Im)possible
At Stevens Institute of Technology, the impossible becomes possible. We take the spark of an idea and make it real.
Our students work together in interdisciplinary teams to create new products, solutions, and services. Our faculty produce groundbreaking research that enables better planning and policy; improves healthcare and treatment; builds our understanding of critical questions; shares useful insight; and makes life safer, more secure and more comfortable. Our partners in the industry work with us to transform business, create the future and tackle the big challenges.
On a green hilltop campus, just the right size and right across the river from New York City, we teach the next generations of leaders and thinkers — the dreamers and doers — to explore with their minds but also to follow their hearts. We teach them to innovate, anticipate, collaborate. We prepare them for careers and further education, prepare them to arrive and thrive in the real world. And they do thrive, spectacularly.

A 55-acre hilltop campus, just minutes from the city by train, bus or ferry? Now that's access to opportunity.
Research That Makes The Difference
Floods. Hurricanes. Alzheimer's disease. Breast cancer. Hackers. Stevens researchers address the hard questions, try the novel approaches, go the extra steps and develop the real-world applications that make the crucial difference — saving lives, protecting privacy, helping people make better decisions, and ensuring a safer, healthier, more secure world.
