A complete turnaround is happening at Stevens.

Since President Nariman Farvardin's installation as seventh President of Stevens Institution of Technology in 2011, the university has accelerated into the national spotlight as a technology education leader. Through a comprehensive strategy resulting in growth in both size and impact during a remarkably short period of time, Stevens has rapidly and successfully ascended to the elite ranks of higher learning.

Demand for a Stevens education has never been higher.

Stevens' applications and enrollment have each increased significantly over the past six years, as have incoming students’ academic credentials – without compromising selectivity.

Student outcomes have soared to among the highest in the nation. Stevens graduates earn starting and mid-career salaries topping those of nearly all other U.S. universities. It's no surprise top employers now return to campus year after year, recruiting the unique skillsets of our new graduates – confident those graduates will hit the ground running, prepared to enter today's technology-rich workplace.
