​Stevens Institute of Technology is a premier, private research university situated in Hoboken, New Jersey, overlooking the Manhattan skyline.

Innovative from Its Origins

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 more than 290 faculty members in an interdisciplinary, student-centric, entrepreneurial environment to advance the frontiers of science and leverage technology to confront 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.

Unique Curriculum, National Recognition

A Stevens education is different. Educated by a unique curriculum blending technical training, teamwork, design projects, internships and cooperative education opportunities, Stevens graduates are consistently in high demand by industry leaders and agencies seeking highly prepared, solutions-oriented employees and team members. Stevens graduates also enjoy starting and mid-career salaries that outpace those of graduates of nearly all other U.S. higher educational institutions. Learn more about career services at Stevens.

Stevens is home to three National Centers of Excellence, as well as dozens of joint research programs, facilities and centers focused on critical industries such as cybersecurity, defense, energy, finance, healthcare, homeland and maritime security, STEM education and urban and coastal resilience. We also maintain extensive professional networks and relationships with leading universities, government agencies and industry.
