Engage with Stevens through Corporate Affiliate Programs, Research Centers and Labs

Corporate affiliate programs support research across the university. Here corporations collaborate with Stevens’ students and faculty from the early stages of research to address society’s pressing challenges. These programs have membership fees and benefits.

CRAFT Workforce Development Workshop

Fintech Center: CRAFT

At the heart of the nation’s first Industry-University Cooperative Research Center (IUCRC) is a focus on industry problems. Established in 2021 through a grant from the prestigious National Science Foundation IUCRC program, Stevens is partnering with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to launch the Center for Research toward Advancing Financial Technologies (CRAFT). The center will work with corporate members to become more agile, solve more complex problems and seek advantages through integration of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, automated markets, more robust algorithms and smarter fraud detection. To date, major players such as Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, UBS, IBM, T. Rowe Price, Wells Fargo, among others, including the New Jersey Economic Development Authority have pledged to join the membership. Learn more.
