Establishing New Market Opportunities
Stevens has been at the forefront of innovation and entrepreneurship since the late 1800s. Founder Edward A. Stevens was raised in a family of inventors and entrepreneurs who transformed their inventions into a number of successful enterprises, including the flanged T rail in 1831, which is still used in rail ways all over the world.
By creating an environment that recognizes and rewards innovation and promotes intellectual property, the Institute leverages key faculty and student talent to foster technological innovation. Stevens fosters an educational environment where students, faculty, and industry jointly nurture new technologies from concept to marketplace realization. This community has earned Stevens numerous patents, which can be viewed on the Technology Transfer section of the Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship website.
