The Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and Science (SES) at Stevens Institute of Technology has undergone a rapid expansion plan over the last four years, and this initiative continues this Spring Semester as three new faculty join the Stevens community.

SES continues to uphold its commitment to excellency throughout this expansion plan, with the new faculty hailing from prestigious research and educational backgrounds, and who will uphold Stevens’ student-centric philosophy and tradition of cutting-edge research.

Dean Jean Zu welcomes each new faculty member to the Schaefer School and is looking forward to seeing their creativity and expertise in action. In return, she promises opportunities for career development and research. “It is heartening to see our renowned faculty growing, along with our growing student body. Our new instructors will enable the school to keep a low student-to-faculty ratio, promising students individual attention during their Stevens education. Additionally, we will continue to provide faculty with well-equipped labs, and research and teaching support, along with opportunities for collaboration – enabling them to contribute new hypotheses, ideas, insights, and evidence to their fields of specialization.”

“I will ensure that we support both our faculty and students in every way we can,” she added.

The new faculty, who come from renowned universities and research backgrounds, are eager to assist students and collaborate with other esteemed faculty.
