|Academic Partnership Around the World|
The Schaefer School of Engineering & Science is continually and expanding its collaborations with academic institutions around the world. A few of SSES's partnerships are highlighted below.
|Rutgers University and the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences|
Stevens Institute of Technology and Rutgers University are expanding their existing partnership through a joint New York Bight Shelf and Harbor Dynamics Study that will leverage the complimentary strengths and ongoing investments of the partner institutions. Existing capabilities include: Stevens’ New York Harbor Observing System, Rutgers’ New Jersey Shelf Observing System, Rutgers’ New Jersey coastal atmospheric forecasting program, and Stevens’ New York Harbor estuarine forecasting program.
Capabilities of the two schools will be merged to (a) implement a coupled high-resolution atmosphere-ocean forecasting model that covers the New York Bight Shelf and Harbor, (b) implement a nested shelf and harbor HF Radar observing system that covers the same region, (c) develop and demonstrate a novel HF Radar data assimilative capability in the ocean model, and (d) use the coupled data assimilative forecast model to study atmosphere-ocean and shelf-estuary coupling in the New York Bight.
|Institute of Technology Tallaght|
On December 7, 2004 a cooperative agreement between Stevens and the Institute of Technology Tallaght (ITT) in Dublin, Ireland was signed by Tim Creedon, Director of ITT and George P. Korfiatis, Dean of Engineering at Stevens. The agreement leverages the strengths of both organizations towards the development of an educational initiative in the form of an International Center for Pharmaceutical Education which will deliver technical education to the pharmaceutical/ health care industry worldwide; including the delivery of online courses with remote/virtual experiments and joint faculty/students exchanges.
|University College London|
Stevens Institute of Technology and England's University College London have agreed upon an exchange of undergraduate students in a mutual study abroad program. Naval Engineering undergraduate students from Schaefer School of Engineering and Science have an opportunity to attend classes in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College London. The agreement was signed by George Korfiatis, Provost and University Vice President of SIT and Michael Worton, Vice Provost of UCL on December 1, 2008. The new program, combining strengths from both institutions, offers a deep and broad education in the field of maritime engineering.
