Research is central to the mission of Stevens Institute of Technology. Across the University, faculty and students work in conjunction with experts from industry and government to conduct an extraordinary amount of high-quality research.
At Stevens, research and entrepreneurship are bound closely together, with support at all levels of the university for opportunities to turn ideas into new businesses and products that can benefit society. Stevens encourages research that focuses on real-world challenges performed by teams that cross disciplines and traditional academic boundaries, resulting in innovative perspectives.
The university houses three National Centers of Excellence — advanced research facilities selected by the United States government to lead national research, development and educational efforts to address critical global needs in areas such as cybersecurity, defense and port security. Stevens faculty have won numerous awards and grants, including nine National Science Foundation CAREER Awards in recent years.
Stevens research is making important advances in key areas of focus, including energy and the environment, infrastructure resiliency and coastal sustainability, business and finance, healthcare and biomedical devices, marine engineering and management, complex systems and security, design and manufacturing, program and project management sciences, decision sciences, and other important fields in engineering, science, technology and the arts.
The Office of the Vice Provost of Research at Stevens mentors researchers, encourages collaboration across the university and with other institutions and connects faculty members with resources that can help them further their work. The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) helps faculty obtain research support and administer project requirements.
