​Stevens Institute of Technology is a premier, private research university situated in Hoboken, New Jersey, overlooking the Manhattan skyline.

Innovative from Its Origins

Founded in 1870 by America's First Family of Inventors  — who patented steam ferries and the modern form of railroad track, among many other inventions — technological innovation has remained the hallmark of Stevens’ education and research programs ever since.

Today, within the university’s three schools and one college, 6,600 undergraduate and graduate students collaborate with faculty members in an interdisciplinary, student-centric, entrepreneurial environment. A range of academic and research programming spanning business, computing, engineering, the arts and other fields actively advances the frontiers of science and leverages technology to confront our most pressing global challenges.

Stevens' alumni network, more than 40,000 strong, also continues to make national and global impact while contributing energy, ideas and support to the continued growth and momentum of the university.

Unique Curriculum, National Recognition

A Stevens education is different. Educated by a unique curriculum blending technical training, teamwork, design projects, internships and cooperative education opportunities, Stevens graduates are consistently in high demand by industry leaders and agencies seeking highly prepared, solutions-oriented employees and team members. Stevens graduates also enjoy starting and mid-career salaries that outpace those of graduates of nearly all other U.S. higher educational institutions. Learn more about career services at Stevens.
