Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Undergraduate Academics
With industry-leading faculty and state-of-the-art research facilities, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will prepare you for lucrative and rewarding careers in a variety of evolving fields.
Real-World Experience and Hands-On Projects
During your time at Stevens, you'll have the opportunity to work on industry-funded design projects under the co-supervision of faculty members and industry experts to gain experience working on real world problems, and explore a number of other opportunities for professional development.
Senior Design Project
In Senior Design, you'll work together with a design team made up of three to five students to develop innovative design solutions for infrastructure, structural and civil/site projects. Teams work with professional industry mentors to establish goals, schedules, and deliverables. Projects conclude at the end of the spring semester during the annual Innovation Expo and are judged by faculty and experts in a highly competitive and fun environment.
Society of Automotive Engineers
The Stevens chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) – also known as the SAE Baja Club – competes in a yearly competition held by SAE, a professional organization that promotes student participation in automotive engineering. The competition encourages young engineers to apply the theory they’ve learned in the classroom to a complex, real design problem ― designing, building, and testing an offroad vehicle, then racing it in competition with other schools.
Launchpad@Stevens is a multi-year coaching program that dramatically raises your odds of entrepreneurial success with faculty members, mentors, and peer-groups that guide you through every step of your entrepreneurial journey.
Engineering Cooperative Education
Approximately 30% of undergraduate engineering students participate in the Stevens Cooperative Education Program The Stevens Cooperative Education Program, or Co-op, is a five-year educational program, which provides engineering and science students with the opportunity to alternate between semesters of full-time work and full-time study in areas related to the student's academic major and career interests. The Co-op program is designed to provide experiences that prepare students to connect their academic studies with the world of work, explore career interests and clarify goals.
The Stevens undergraduate experience culminates with Senior Design, a year-long collaborative project in which you will apply all they have learned to the solution of urgent, real-world problems, displayed at the annual Innovation Expo.

Incoming New Students
First Years (First Semester and Transfers)
In your first semester, you'll engage in activities and support designed to introduce you to and familiarize you with the department's community, your academic advisors, and the academic and social support structure available to ensure your success and well-being. You'll meet other students, faculty members, and experience ways to integrate yourself into the student body.
Second year student activities are designed to bridge theory with practice and encourage your professional development through initial exposure to upcoming professional choices, like co-op and internship assignments, research experiences, international opportunities, electives and specialization options, and professional society memberships.
In your third year, your student-advisor relationship will shift from group activities to individually-focused strategy sessions about post-graduation options like graduate school or industry, selecting a final co-op assignment, and picking a senior capstone project.
In your senior year, you'll complete and present your senior capstone project. The culmination of your education is the successful preparation for the next step in your careers: graduate school or industry employment. Many students end up working for companies they interned with or collaborated on industry-sponsored projects during their capstone. The Stevens Career Center also offers numerous opportunities to network via career fairs and faculty mentors often help students gain industry connections.
