STEVENS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY
NAVAL & OCEAN ENGINEERING, MARITIME SYSTEMS ENGINEERING, STRUCTURE & SECURITY, MARITIME TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT AND SHIP HYDRODYNAMICS EDUCATION
Stevens Institute of Technology was founded in 1870 as a legacy of America’s first family of inventors. Stevens is a premier private coeducational institution focused on research and entrepreneurship. Stevens is committed to exploring the frontiers of engineering, science, and management.
Creative and entrepreneurial research is an integral part of the Stevens mission. This is expressed through the concept of Technogenesis, a novel educational approach pioneered by the Institute. Technogenesis leverages the expertise of students, faculty and colleagues in industry to conceive, design and commercialize new technologies. Stevens’ 2008 ranking by Forbes Magazine as the nation’s third Top Patent-Revenue-Generating University underscores the success of this endeavor.
Stevens offers 30 undergraduate majors, 40 Master’s degree programs, 17 PhD programs and 100+ graduate certificates. The student success in terms of placements and salaries in 2009 was excellent. Average starting salary: $62,400, 85% placement rate within one month of graduation, 59% received multiple job offers, and 300+ companies recruited on campus.
BE in Naval Engineering: Naval Engineering is a broad-based engineering discipline that involves the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of surface and subsurface ships, ocean structures, and shore facilities. Although these vessels and facilities are traditionally employed in the defense of the nation, many are also employed in the support of the civilian (commercial) Marine Transportation System.
ME in Ocean Engineering: Advanced courses in the Ocean Engineering graduate program reflect the research interests of the faculty and cover topics in coastal engineering, sediment transport, mixing processes in coastal and estuarine waters, environmental fluid mechanics, estuarine and coastal ocean modeling, motion of vessels in waves, underwater acoustics, and marine meteorology. Basic areas of study encompass oceanography, hydrodynamics, and naval architecture.
MS in Maritime Systems: The Maritime Systems (MS) Master Program has been organized to provide today's students with a graduate education in the areas of maritime industry, engineering, and management activities to stimulate and enhance their capacity for success. There are six areas (or Tracks) of emphasis for students to develop their knowledge and capabilities including studies focused on environmental issues, management disciplines, marine transportation, security operations and technologies, maritime structures, and systems engineering.
Graduate Certificate in Maritime Security: The objectives of this program are to provide the student with the operational and technological skills to deal with the international safety and security issues facing the Maritime Transportation System. The student’s perspective may be that of a vessel or port operator, Port Authority, or military or governmental security agency.
Graduate Certificate in Maritime Structures: The objectives of this certificate are: to better enable the student to understand the unique factors which must be considered when designing structures for the marine environments such as waves, storm surges, and high winds, and to provide them with the knowledge to apply this understanding to structural design.
Graduate Certificate in Maritime Systems Engineering: The complex issues facing the maritime industry as an end-to-end supply chain are addressed through the discipline of systems engineering. The objectives of this certificate are to provide the student with the basic knowledge of the systems engineering discipline and the ability to apply that discipline to the actual problems and projects the student will face on the job.
Graduate Certificate in Maritime Systems Management: This certificate program is designed to provide basic management skills applied to the maritime industry. The objectives of this certificate are: to better enable industry practitioners to meet today’s maritime industry management requirements; to assist them in recognizing current business trends and opportunities in their technical and operational undertakings; and to complement the skill set of those experienced in marine operations to enable them to move into managerial positions of increased responsibility.
Graduate Certificate in Maritime Transportation: The program objective is to enable the student to meet modern naval architecture and marine engineering challenges including the design of vessels and related port structures taking into account requirements such as short sea shipping, shallow water navigation, and multi-hull design. The intended audience includes engineering students and practitioners from the commercial, operational, and governmental arenas.
Graduate Certificate in Ocean Engineering: Required courses are Oceanography and Coastal Engineering. The electives include: Marine Structures, Hydrodynamics, Stochastic Analysis of Ocean Waves, Dynamics of Ocean Waves, and Advanced Hydrodynamics Laboratory.
Graduate Certificate in Ship Hydrodynamics: Required courses are Principles of Naval Architecture and Marine Structures. The electives include: Yacht Design, Computer Aided Aspects of Naval Architecture Motion of Vessels in Waves, Hydrodynamics of High Speed Craft, and Advanced Hydrodynamics Laboratory.
PhD in Ocean Engineering: The program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree is designed to develop your capability to perform research or high-level design in civil, environmental or ocean engineering. Doctoral research work must be based on an original investigation and the results must make a significant, state-of-the-art contribution to the field, and must be worthy of publication in current professional literature.
