The Stevens Innovation Expo is an annual showcase of the significant and extensive research and innovation accomplishments of Stevens students and faculty throughout the academic year. It is an opportunity for the Stevens community to share technical knowledge, vie for prizes, network with each other, and meet distinguished guests from industry and academia.
The event begins with an academic colloquium featuring inspiring presentations by successful researchers and entrepreneurs. Next up is the ever-anticipated Elevator Pitch Olympics, in which Stevens students compete for investment funding to turn their Senior Design projects into businesses. This year a Project Plan Olympics has also been added, in which students persuade potential clients to select their projects over the competition. The event also includes a lunchtime faculty poster session highlighting the work of faculty researchers.
The culmination of the event is the Senior Project exposition, which displays the results of capstone Senior Design projects in poster or prototype format. All Stevens Engineering students complete a Senior Design project in their final year of study, applying knowledge gained in the classroom to a major design project that meets a practical industry need.
