Stevens performs leading-edge research in a wide variety of critical disciplines. The university has chosen to exert particular research focus on six specific foundational pillars in which Stevens currently possesses leading expertise.
These research pillars are inter- and multi-disciplinary domains that engage diverse collaborators, internal and external to Stevens, in dynamic partnerships and communities in the pursuit of large-scale grant funding and the creation of centers of excellence and practice.
Each area will be critical to national and global planning, governance, infrastructure and technology development — as well as regional, national and international safety, security and well-being. Stevens engages diverse collaborators in academic, industry and government in dynamic partnerships in these six domains in its continuous effort to maximize social benefit.
