"Provide a world-class scientific research and academic environment that fosters creation of new knowledge while educating and inspiring students at all levels as well as motivating faculty and support staff to acquire, use, and advance the competencies needed to lead in scientific discovery and in the creation, application and management of technology to solve complex problems, invent new processes and products, and build new enterprises."
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology is home to undergraduate and graduate degree engineering programs.
We pride ourselves in maintaining a strong intellectual environment. Our research programs, many of which have a strong interdisciplinary character, are leading the way in their respective fields of endeavor. Our teaching programs prepare our students for careers in physics related research, and broader areas of technology development.
|Schaefer School of Engineering & Science Mission |
The Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering & Science seeks to be globally recognized as an engineering and science school that educates students to have the breadth and depth required to succeed in their chosen professions, and become leaders in the development of important new knowledge and technologies being integrated into the fabric of society by the various education and innovation pathways we support. Our mission is one that confidently addresses the challenges facing engineering now and into the future, yet remains true to the vision of the founders of Stevens Institute in 1870 as one of the first engineering schools in the nation. Their vision was to provide an engineering education that would prepare leaders. The success of our alumni provides abundant testimony to the strength of a Stevens education in meeting this vision.
The Technogenesis environment at Stevens is an embodiment of this vision to address a more entrepreneurial orientation needed by our graduates for the years ahead. In the Undergraduate Programs this is accomplished through a broad-based Core Curriculum of applied sciences, engineering sciences, design, management and the humanities coupled to a long-standing honor system. The curriculum is intended to provide for development of competencies that go beyond the purely technical. These competencies include: ability to analyze and provide creative solutions to problems, self reliance in approaching open-ended problems and in the use of information technologies, effective teamwork and communication skills, an understanding of the societal, economic, environmental and ethical impact of engineering decisions, and an openness to and knowledge of entrepreneurial concepts that will facilitate success in a rapidly changing business environment.
