Creating new horizons with collaborations: A Stevens-Georgetown Partnership in Systems Engineering

On Thursday, October 17, 2013, Stevens Institute of Technology and Georgetown University launched a new Master’s program in Systems Engineering Management.

The program that opens to students in September 2014 is designed to address the growing need for qualified and diversified systems engineers who can integrate their understanding of complex technology with business operations. Combining the engineering and technology expertise of Stevens and the practical, applied management knowledge of Georgetown, the Master’s program will empower students with an education that is progressive and cutting-edge.

The program was launched at an event hosted by Georgetown, and was attended by several eminent members from academia, government and the industry.

Spiros Dimolitsas, Senior Vice President for Research and Chief Technology Officer, Georgetown University, and George Korfiatis, Provost and Vice President, Stevens Institute of Technology, were among the distinguished keynote speakers at the event. Both speakers emphasized the importance of academic collaboration – a key in creating future generations of management-ready engineers.
