Stevens Institute of Technology is a premier, private research university situated in Hoboken, New Jersey, overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Founded in 1870 by America's First Family of Inventors — who patented steam ferries and the modern form of railroad track, among many other inventions — technological innovation has remained the hallmark of Stevens’ education and research programs ever since.
Today, within the university’s three schools and one college, 6,600 undergraduate and graduate students collaborate with faculty members in an interdisciplinary, student-centric, entrepreneurial environment. A range of academic and research programming spanning business, computing, engineering, the arts and other fields actively advances the frontiers of science and leverages technology to confront our most pressing global challenges.
Stevens' alumni network, more than 40,000 strong, also continues to make national and global impact while contributing energy, ideas and support to the continued growth and momentum of the university.

Master’s Degree Programs at Stevens Institute of Technology
Graduate programs are intended to enable professionals to advance in industries increasingly influenced by technology, to enable scholars to explore the frontiers of their disciplines. Concentrations tailored to the specific needs of the graduate student are available within almost all Stevens master's degree programs; interdisciplinary degree programs can also be fashioned to meet specific needs, with approval from the Dean of Graduate Academics and at least two faculty members.
Professional Engineer Programs
The engineer’s degree is a terminal professional degree beyond the master's degree. The purpose of the Stevens professional engineer program is to advance the training of engineers beyond the master's level and to provide modern education for engineers whose master's degrees are not recent. A design project is required of graduates. Professional engineering degrees are currently available in the designations of Chemical Engineer, Civil Engineer, Computer Engineer, Computer Science, Electrical Engineer, Mechanical Engineer and Physics.
Stevens' doctoral programs are designed for students who will independently investigate specific problems within their fields of knowledge in great detail, making significant new and original contributions to that particular body of knowledge. As our doctoral students pursue research in their chosen field of science, engineering, or management, they develop study plans in close collaboration with faculty advisors.
