State-of-the art Centers
Provide access to tools and methods to produce the most innovative and effective solutions for the biggest socio-technical challenges.
Understanding complexity in modern systems is the critical challenge of this century. Research at the Stevens School of Systems of Enterprises (SSE) is structured to understand the forces that drive complexity and address the most pressing issues of our increasingly connected global society.
The research enterprise at SSE is an extensive, deep and a fundamental part of the fabric of the school. From addressing the nation's critical need for more resilient infrastructure to improving healthcare systems to developing low cost, reliable wireless broadband access technologies to investigating cyber security challenges in across multiple domains, research at SSE is a dynamic collaborative interplay between academia, industry and government.
These collaborations blur the boundaries between academia and the industry/government reality, and foster intellectual breakthroughs that are academic, with the ability to be translated and applied to a wide range of real-world initiatives. For instance, Stevens is now part of one of the largest autonomous vehicle research contracts with the Federal Highway Administration due to assistant professor Dr. Yagenah Hayeri's work on how autonmous vehicle systems are changing transportation systems and society.
From faculty who are well-known scholars to undergraduates students, the SSE community works with internal and external stakeholders to create powerful technologies, tools and sustainable solutions that address pressing technical and social challenges, while expanding human knowledge through analysis, innovation and insight.
