The master's in Systems Engineering at Stevens helps students to architect, design and manage complex technical systems and processes throughout their life cycles.

The Systems Engineering graduate program at the Stevens Institute of Technology provides a world-class, practice-based and research-supported education to empower 21st century technical leaders.

The newest U.S. News and World Report rankings in the Industrial/Manufacturing/Systems Engineering category were released yesterday, and the Stevens program moved up 7 ranking positions from last year; rising from 39th last year to 32nd this year. 

The ranking is a reflection of the positive reputation Stevens has among its peers. The ranking, which is wholly based on peer assessment scores, reflects how department heads perceive and rate Systems Engineering programs. 

“Moving up in this category is satisfying as it is an indication that peer academic leaders confirm the strength and value of the Stevens Systems Engineering program,” said Dr. Anthony Barrese, interim dean of the School of Systems and Enterprises (SSE). “A fundamental part of the fabric of our school is its research enterprise. The improved ranking is a recognition of the quality of the research contributions of our faculty.”

Stevens students benefit from the university’s location in Hoboken, N.J., directly across from New York City, which is a major hub for leading technology companies and Fortune 500 enterprises on the forefront of transformative systems innovation.

In addition to master’s degrees in systems engineering, engineering management, systems analytics, software engineering, space systems engineering, systems security engineering and socio-technical systems; Stevens offers Ph.D. programs in systems engineering, engineering management and socio-technical systems, and bachelor’s degrees in engineering management and software engineering. At Stevens, faculty and students work side-by-side on crucial research projects and contribute to the development of solutions to complex socio-technical problems of national and international significance, in domains such as – financial systems, national security, healthcare delivery, autonomous systems and coastal urban resilience. 

Each year, U.S. News and World Report ranks graduate engineering programs based on the expert opinions of peers (deans of engineering schools and other academic officials) and key indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students.
