Stevens Institute of Technology, The Innovation University™, is a private co-educational institution of higher learning founded in 1870. Stevens is located on a 55-acre campus in Hoboken, New Jersey. It overlooks the Hudson River and has stunning views of the Manhattan skyline of New York City.
At present, Stevens consists of three schools and one college: the Wesley J. Howe School of Technology Management (STM), the Charles V.
