The sponsored senior design program is the culmination of the undergraduate engineering management education.

Students work on cross disciplinary teams and gain real-world experiences through senior design. 

 Typically spanning two to three semesters, students work in teams of up to four persons on sponsored consulting, entrepreneurial and product development projects.​ The scope of the project is decided in discussion between the sponsor and a Stevens senior design coordinator. A suitable project is one that provides value to the sponsor, is appropriate to the time scale and meets the academic requirements of the program.

These projects are typically conducted in the two-semester design sequence during their senior year and the goal is to have students work on multi-disciplinary teams so that they gain experience in the type of environment that they will experience in their careers. Stevens' faculty members with expertise in the field(s) of the project, together with the sponsor, provide joint supervision of the groups. Progress is presented twice per semester and a comprehensive final report is turned over at completion.

Sponsors

Sponsored senior design can significantly benefit both the students and the sponsoring organization with the students gaining "real world" experience and the sponsor adding value to their projects. Sponsorship provides a context for the project that can afford the students a meaningful bridge to professional work. After an initial proposal is accepted, feedback to the sponsor is typically maintained through site visits, phone calls and e-mail.
