The Evolution of A Leading Technology University
Stevens Institute of Technology opened its doors in 1870 to a handful of students, all of them men, offering a single program of study: mechanical engineering. Fast-forward to today, a century and a half later, and you find the original legacy of innovation intact — in an increasingly diverse, growing university community.
With a student body now nearly 7,000 strong, Stevens has since moved into evolving disciplines such as artificial intelligence, data science, resiliency planning, healthcare, transportation, finance, systems, the intersection of technology with the arts and a number of other leading-edge fields.
Students now hail not only from across the U.S. but from around the world, choosing from 35 undergraduate major program, 58 master's degree programs and 22 Ph.D. programs. Much has changed in 150 years atop Castle Point, true, but the next innovators and problem solvers are still educated by Stevens. That will never change.
