FE 800 projects
Students in the Financial Engineering master's program can take the capstone course FE 800 Selected Topics in Financial Engineering in order to apply their knowledge to solve specific problems in their discipline of interest. Faculty, in collaboration with other Stevens professors as well as industry professionals, propose a range of topics and problems related to the master's coursework for students. The course also emphasizes core business skills such as collaboration, leadership, presentation and technical writing, as students work in groups to tackle problems and present their findings. Oftentimes, student teams wind up publishing their findings in various academic journals.
