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.
Work in these strategic areas 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. Therefore, Stevens will engage diverse collaborators in academic, industry and government in dynamic partnerships in these specific domains. Through these interdisciplinary research collaboration and external partnerships, the university will continue to maximize its societal impact in these fields.
