The Stevens Innovation Expo, organized by the Office of Innovation & Entrepreneurship is an annual, one-day, campus-wide event which displays the extensive research and innovation accomplishments of faculty and students. This year’s event drew hundreds of visitors to witness the innovative technologies, products and services developed by students and faculty. We had a special research presentation from the Provost of the University of Delaware, Dr. Domenico Grasso, about the “The Future of the American Research University” and a presentation by Stevens Board of Trustee Member Thomas H. Scholl, namesake of the Thomas H. Scholl Lecture by Visiting Entrepreneurs which features notable visiting entrepreneurs and executives who have started successful businesses or improved the financial performance of existing companies. More than 120 senior design projects were showcased with the top 16 participating in an elevator pitch competition. See highlights from the various events below, as well as a slide show of photos.

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. 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. Please explore this year’s collaborations, organized by industry.
