Explore Our Research
Research centers and laboratories at Stevens Institute of Technology seek innovative solutions to address the challenges of modern science and engineering. Our expert faculty researchers work in a collaborative atmosphere to create the technologies that shape our world.
Center for Healthcare Innovation
The university-wide Center for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) supports Stevens faculty- and student-initiated research and educational programs that address gaps and issues related to advancing biomedical technology and healthcare delivery, and also serves as a focal point for integration of external strategic partnerships.
Center for Environmental Systems
The Center for Environmental Systems (CES), a unique synthesis of the professional and academic worlds, is dedicated to applied, interdisciplinary research for the solution of pressing, real-world environmental problems. Through advanced knowledge and in-depth professional expertise, CES is recognized as a leader in the development, evaluation and implementation of new environmental technologies. The researchers at the CES, through collaborations with government agencies and industrial partners, work to generate new scientific knowledge, which leads to the creation of innovative technologies, sound environmental policy and sensible resource management. Over the years CES has played an instrumental role in establishing new technologies for environmental control.
Center for Neuromechanics
The Center for Neuromechanics is an interdisciplinary, collaborative group of researchers and educators that investigate the function, structure and health of the human brain and utilize mechanical engineering applications such as imaging, instrumentation, computation and rehabilitation to improve the quality of life for people with neurological disorders.
Center for Quantum Science and Engineering
The Center for Quantum Science and Engineering (CQSE) at Stevens Institute of Technology pursues innovative quantum engineering research, development and education including bringing photonic technologies into reality, networking, remote sensing, machine learning, big data processing and quantum computing.
Davidson Laboratory is Stevens Institute of Technology's renowned marine research laboratory that uniquely integrates the fields of naval architecture, coastal and ocean engineering, physical oceanography, marine hydrodynamics and maritime systems to create a trans-disciplinary enterprise that can address both the highly specialized issues confronting each discipline, as well as the more complex, integrated issues facing natural systems and human-made maritime activities.
Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence
Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence is composed of more than 50 faculty members from all academic units at Stevens (engineering, business, systems and arts & music) researching a variety of applications in AI and machine learning.
Learn more about Research at the Schaefer School
Shared Facilities at Stevens are available for use by members of the Stevens community. Some facilities are open to outside investigators who wish to conduct research with state-of-the-art instrumentation in a convenient location.
The Schaefer School houses the following facilities which are accessible to our enrolled students and collaborators:
The IDEaS web portal provides access to resources for multi-disciplinary design, prototyping, and acquiring life-long skills required to explore intrapreneurial/entrepreneurial opportunities. Login required.
Research Computing Services
Stevens Institute of Technology provides advanced computing infrastructure and services for sponsored or departmental research with large-scale computing needs to all faculty members and interdisciplinary research groups within the School of Engineering and Science.
Laboratory for Multi-Scale Imaging
The Laboratory for Multiscale Imaging (LMSI) houses instrumentation that provides imaging capabilities to study both synthetic and biological materials from macroscopic to microscopic length scale.
The MicroDevice Laboratory explores military systems applications of emerging nanotechnologies that include: nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, micro/nano sensors and actuators, microchemical systems, nanoenergetics, and nanoscale energy harvesting.
Mass Spectrometry Laboratory
The Mass Spectrometry Laboratory at Stevens is one of the most well-equipped academic facilities in the U.S. With six mass analyzers incorporating time-of-flight and quadrupolar techniques, and a variety of inlets such as electrospray, MALDI, ApCI, EI and CI, the center welcomes collaborative research projects from the Stevens community and as well as outside partners.
The Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and Science facilities provide state-of-the-art laboratory equipment for use campus-wide.
Virtual Research Forum
The Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and Science Virtual Research Forum highlights our exciting research breakthroughs in six pillar areas. Each forum features highly accomplished faculty speakers from multiple departments within the Schaefer School.
Our goal with this research forum is threefold:
To offer a virtual space for colleagues
To get together to provide intellectual simulation and enrichment
To foster cross-disciplinary collaboration
Grant Proposal Enhancement Programs
The School of Engineering and Science offers three grant proposal enhancement programs to facilitate competitive funding success of faculty investigators.
The ACE (Advancing Centers of Excellence) Program
This ACE Program aims to support strong and inter/multi-disciplinary faculty team(s) with solid funding track records and ample evidence in ongoing center competition efforts (e.g., planning proposal or white paper submitted to or endorsed by agency). National centers of excellence such as NSF, ERC, MRSEC, and IURCR, as well as those funded by DoD, DoE, and NIH are a powerful symbol of the intellectual and technical prowess of an academic institution. Up to two projects will be awarded at $25,000 each for one year, renewable for additional $25,000 for a second year.
The SPRINT Program (Spearheading Proposals by Interdisciplinary Teams)
The SPRINT Program aims to provide support to facilitate the planning and submission of multi-PI proposals in response to open or anticipated solicitations of federal agencies, private foundations, or industrial entities. Funds up to $5,000 each can be used for team building, internal planning discussions, outreach to external partners, visits with collaborative institutions, and travel for technical discussions with program officers.
The Bridging Program (Bridging the Proof of Concept)
The Bridging program aims to bridge a critical hardware or software gap to accelerate the preliminary proof of a potentially transformative concept. The probability should be very high that the Bridging fund, up to $20,000 each, will result in significant funding success.
The PIPE Program (Pre-Submission Internal Proposal Evaluations)
The aim of the PIPE program is to provide a structured internal mechanism for expert-caliber technical and editorial review of proposals before their official submission. Each proposal will be reviewed by at least two faculty and a communications staff member in the school to provide timely feedback to improve the prospect of the grant proposal success. The internal review is voluntary but strongly recommended for all PIs. Login to the GPEP portal on myStevens to view full details and submit proposals.
Grant Workshop Series
Past grant writing and proposal workshops are available for review on the SES Research Intranet Site via myStevens. Login using your Stevens credentials at the link below.
