Stevens wins Excellence in Technology Education Award
Date:9/26/2007

HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Stevens Institute of Technology has been selected by the New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC) to receive its 2007 Excellence in Technology Education Award, in recognition of the Institutes consistent success in defining the role of the modern technological university. Stevens will be honored by the NJTC at its annual black tie ceremony at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, N.J., November 15, 2007.

This is a further recognition that Stevens is an institution with both feet planted firmly in the 21st century, with an understanding of where technology advances will take us in the future, said Provost & University Vice President George P. Korfiatis. With our schools of Engineering & Science, Technology Management, Systems & Enterprises, and the College of Arts & Letters, Stevens is fully engaged at the frontiers of the technology macrocosm, as well as in the micro- and nano-spheres.

One can easily take for granted that, a little more than a decade ago, three thriving schools emerged from a single institution to meet the needs of a new generation of tech-savvy students, as well as to accommodate unprecedented growth in Institute faculty and research, said Stevens President Harold J. Ravech. This restructuring led to the most spectacular era of progress in the Institutes 137 years of existence progress that continues to this moment.

Building from the entrepreneurial spirit of the Institutes founding family, Stevens has recently reconfigured into four schools with a focus on the future: The Schaefer School of Engineering & Science, The Howe School of Technology Management, The School of Systems & Enterprises, and The College of Arts & Letters.

Part of the reason that Stevens has achieved so much in technology education is the Technogenesis approach to education and research, said Dr. Lex McCusker, Dean of The Howe School of Technology Management. Not only do Stevens faculty and students invent technology, discover technology and develop technology, they also commercialize it, often in close collaboration with industry. A Stevens-educated scientist or engineer or artist or musician understands how technology can solve problems, create value and improve the lives of all of us. The leadership of the Institute has identified three major thrust areas for the 21st century, each encompassing large, at times intersecting fields of academic and research endeavor, each dependent upon cross-disciplinary collaboration rooted in strong individual faculty scholarship:

  • Systems and enterprise management and architecture

  • Security maritime, cyber, information and communications networks

  • Multi-scale engineering, science, and technology

The drive for excellence in these areas will reinforce Stevens reputation as a go-to university for government and major industry in technology areas that are proving to be vital to the emerging global economy of the next 25 years, said Ravech.
