|Schaefer School of Engineering & Science Educational Mission |
The Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and Science seeks to be globally recognized as an engineering and science school that educates students to have the breadth and depth of knowledge required to lead in their chosen profession, and leads in the development of important new knowledge and new technologies and their integration 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 students to become leaders. The success of our alumni provides abundant testimony to the strength of a Stevens education in meeting this vision. The TechnogenesisTM 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, managemen,t and the humanities, coupled with 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.
|Stevens Institute of Technology Mission |
Stevens Institute of Technology creates new knowledge and educates and inspires students to acquire the competencies needed to lead in scientific discovery and in the creation, application and management of technology to solve complex problems and to build new enterprises.
