WHERE ENERGY AND SUSTAINABILITY MEETS ENGINEERING AND SCIENCE

Researchers in departments across the Charles, V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and Science at Stevens Institute of Technology are exploring the leading frontiers of green energy and sustainability to help make our lives – and our planet – safer, healthier, more sustainable and more enjoyable.

Our researchers are developing new techniques, devices, and applications that filter hazardous substances, produce stonger, longer-lasting batteries, and generate renewable energy. Discover just a few of them below.

Center for Environmental Systems

The Center for Environmental Systems (CES) is recognized as a leader in the development, evaluation and implementation of new environmental technologies. Through collaborations with government agencies and industrial partners, CES researchers work to generate new scientific knowledge to create innovative technologies, sound environmental policy and sensible resource management. Over the years CES has played an instrumental role in establishing new technologies for environmental control.


RELATED PROGRAMS

The educational experience in all of our more than 150 graduate programs is designed to imbue graduates with the mindset, skills, and abilities needed to stay relevant in a rapidly-evolving technological and professional landscape. The following programs prepare graduates for fields that develop and apply the latest technologies in green energy and sustainability.

The willy-nilly releases of PFAS into the environment should not have been a problem because these chemicals should not have been released into the environment in the first place.
