Stevens Institute of Technology was recently honored with the Rockwell Collins Platinum Premier Award, the highest level of recognition in Rockwell’s Trusted Supplier Program. As the recipient of the Platinum Premier Award, the Stevens School of Systems and Enterprises (SSE) is recognized for maintaining the highest levels of performance and alignment, which encompasses educational program, faculty, support and cost.

“It is an honor to receive this recognition from Rockwell Collins. We have worked together for over five years, and we look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come," said Anthony Barrese, interim dean of SSE. 

Representatives from Rockwell Collins – Brent Gasper, program manager, Integrated Solutions for Engineering, and Paul Ekman, senior director, Engineering Infrastructure & Integrity – presented the Award in the Immersion Lab which is located in the Lawrence T. Babbio, Jr. Center for Technology, the home of SSE.

Now in its tenth year, SSE has a long history of addressing corporate education needs and strategic goals through custom educational programs. 

A supplier of world-class educational programs, SSE offers students the opportunity to earn graduate certificates in systems engineering and architecting, systems engineering security, and software engineering on-site at Rockwell Collins locations. Rockwell Collins employees are grouped in cohorts who take program coursework together; a model that promotes teaming and establishes an environment that permits deeper exploration of locally relevant technology and practices. 

Introduced in 2013, the Rockwell Collins Trusted Supplier Program is designed to foster collaboration and formally recognize performance.
