Elevator Pitch Competition : An elevator pitch is a short presentation made by an entrepreneur raising money for a venture. The term describes a pitch that’s short enough that it could be given during an elevator ride when the entrepreneur has the only chance to talk with a potential investor

Project Plan Pitch Competition: A project plan pitch is a short presentation made to persuade potential clients to select your project design over the competition. Similar to an elevator pitch, it is a pitch short enough to persuade your boss or potential client to want to learn more about your project.

Senior Projects Expo 2014

1 Castle Point on Hudson, Hoboken NJ

The capstone senior design project is the culmination of the undergraduate experience, where knowledge gained in the classroom is applied to a major design project. The pinnacle of the experience is the Senior Design Exposition, where all the projects are displayed for the general public and Stevens community. Stevens recognizes the importance of applying projects to real world problems and encourages senior projects to be sponsored or mentored in collaboration with an industrial partner. This provides projects of value to the sponsor, and it imbues a professional orientation in the student team as they work towards providing the sponsor with deliverables in a manner that simulates the environment in a professional environment. Please explore this year’s collaborations, organized by industry.
