斯蒂文斯理工学院(Stevens Institute of Technology)成立于1870年,是一所四年制私立大学, 因为学生人数不算太多,大约约3,400名,因此在美国来讲是属于小型的大学,然而虽然学校小,但是在师资及排名上却是不容忽视的。

史蒂文斯理工学院被公认最好的学科是工程、理科和专业管理,不过史蒂文斯理工学院的学生则是认为电机及机械工程 是顶尖的,史蒂文斯理工学院全校将近有70%的学生 是攻读工程科系,11%攻读计算器及计算机科学,10%攻读自然科学。

目前共450名学生参加“合作课程”,即厂校交替制,学生要五年才毕业,但五年期间,会到IBM以及General foods两达机构实习三至五个学期不等。

英文版介绍

Stevens Institute of Technology is a technological university located on a 55 acre (223,000 m²) campus in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA, founded in 1870 on the basis of an 1868 bequest from Edwin A. Stevens. It is the fourth-oldest technological university in the United States, and is known for its rigorous engineering, science, and technological management curricula.

The institute has produced leading engineers, scientists, and managers in industry and government. Two members of the Stevens community, as alumni or faculty, have been awarded the Nobel Prize: Frederick Reines (class of 1939), in Physics, and Irving Langmuir (Chemistry faculty 1906-1909), in chemistry。

The Stevens campus encompasses Castle Point, the highest point in Hoboken. Historic Sybil's Cave bores into the side of Castle Point, and below and to the east of the university is Frank Sinatra Park, Castle Point Park, and Castle Point Skate Park. The tallest building in the institute is the Wesley J. Howe Center, occupying the site of the former "Stevens Castle" on Castle Point.

Among the prominent research centers of Stevens is the Davidson Laboratory, Wireless Network Security Center, Keck Geotechnical Laboratory, Plasma Physics Laboratory, Nicoll Environmental Laboratory, Electron Microscopy Laboratory, and Center for Mass Spectrometry.

In a survey in the Princeton Review's Best 366 Colleges, Stevens came in 2nd place in "Professors Get Low Marks".

The current president of Stevens Institute of Technology is Harold J. Raveché.

1、Education environment
 
Stevens is composed of four academic schools: the Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering, the Arthur E. Imperatore School of Sciences and Arts, the Wesley J. Howe School of Technology Management and the newly-created School of Systems and Enterprises.

Stevens offers the Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree in electrical, chemical, biomedical, materials, civil, mechanical, systems, engineering management, computer, and ocean engineering. A total of 145-155 credits is required for the B.E. degree. Stevens is one of the few schools in the United States that has retained a broad-based engineering curriculum, requiring many courses in engineering disciplines outside of one's major area of concentration as well as an extensive science foundation. This is a rigorous curricula. Stevens students credit the high, diverse course load with providing them the ability to solve problems outside their immediate fields of study, and to effectively attack interdisciplinary problems that cut across many different, but related, areas of engineering and science. This has made Stevens engineers extraordinarily professionally competent in solving problems compared with many others whose training was focused in a narrow specialty. The Stevens curriculum is noted for its large number of required core courses that are optional in many other schools.

All of the engineering curricula, with the exception of Biomedical Engineering, are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The newest discipline, Biomedical Engineering, is currently finishing the required approval period and accreditation is expected in 2006. The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree is offered in chemistry, business & technology management, computer science, mathematics, physics, materials science, and chemical biology/biochemistry. At the graduate level, Stevens offers the Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), Master of Technology Management (M.T.M.), Master of Science (M.S.), Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.), Engineer (E.E., M.E., Comp.E., C.E., and Ch.E.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees.

Stevens offers an accelerated Chemical Biology/Pre-Medical program with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. In this program, students can enter the medical school after the third year at Stevens. Stevens confers the B.S. degree after the first year of medical school, with the M.D. degree awarded after the fourth year. There is also a prelaw program with New York Law School, and a "3-2" (5 year) dual-degree program with New York University, in which students earn a B.S. in science from NYU, in addition to the B.Eng. from Stevens. Stevens Institute of Technology International offers two graduate programs in the Dominican Republic – a Master of Science in Information Systems and a Master of Engineering Manufacturing Technology and Project Management

The Wesley J. Howe School of Technology Management differs substantially from most traditional business schools in that it emphasizes quantitative methods of management, particularly those unique to the management of technologically-based organizations. The Stevens undergraduate program emphasizes mathematical business models, applications of hard science to the concept and marketing of products, financial engineering (stochastic calculus, probability, and statistics as descriptors of the dynamic behavior of financial markets) and the case study method of business analysis. The capstone project in the Business curriculum is the design of a technology-based business, with the accompanying business plan, operations research, market analysis, financial prospectus, and risk analysis. Several of the capstone projects done in the business school have actually been realized in the marketplace as new companies. Stevens has remained a "small school" because it allows smaller classes for improved efficiency and better student-faculty interaction.

Current focus in Stevens is integration of business and technology, with technology coming first. The aim is to produce alumni possessing both the skills to create and to lead and manage technological projects. This achieved through high student involvement in research activities and collaboration with faculty helping bring any project from concept to a real commercial product.

Another important trait of Stevens is its interdisciplinary philosophy – students are not forced to only take courses from their particular department, it is possible to get involved into different fields of science and technology or even graduate with an interdisciplinary major. The quality of individual study plan is assured through faculty advisers representing the respective departments.

The Honor System gives the student the privilege to take an examination without proctoring by a professor. Students are required to sign the Honor System pledge attesting that they have not "asked for, given, nor received aid during this examination" in exchange for that privilege. The pledge reads, "I pledge my honor that I have abided by the Stevens Honor System." At the time of its incorporation, students taking examinations were watched closely by a proctor, and asking not to be proctored was a revolutionary idea. Proctoring presumes students will not do the honorable thing, whereas the Honor System places great trust in the students. Stevens treats its students as future professionals, who will maintain the honor and integrity of their professions. In the case of infractions of the Honor System, a jury of the student's peers hears the case in a trial and decides the outcome.

Stevens was the first technological university in the United States with a humanities department.Twenty-four credit hours of humanities (history, literature, social science, philosophy, and art/music) are required of all undergraduates.

2、Research environment

Davidson Laboratory: One of the largest is the Davidson Laboratory, which is the oldest non-military hydrodynamics, naval architecture, and ocean engineering research laboratory in the United States. The Davidson Laboratory houses several towing tanks, which are equipped with computer-controlled machinery to generate waves with precisely determined amplitude and spectral characteristics. Trolleys mounted on rotating and linear arms carry scale models of the ships or vehicles to be tested while sensors record the vehicle motion and the data analyzed on computers. The stability, control, and seaworthiness characteristics of the vessel can thus be precisely characterized. Davidson Lab has designed and tested numerous ships, boats, yachts, submarines, and amphibious vehicles. Notable projects of Davidson include seakeeping and buoyancy tests of the Apollo flotation balloons (computer simulations showed the balloons to adequately support the spacecraft when it parachuted into the ocean, however, Davidson Lab proved by experiment that the original design would have caused the spacecraft to overturn and sink. The design was thus corrected and retested), design and test of the majority of the America's Cup racing yachts including several Cup winners, many Navy ships, and amphibious aircraft. The Davidson Laboratory is now part of the Center for Maritime Systems, which conducts research in the fields of coastal oceanography and underwater acoustics, as well as the traditional marine craft hydrodynamics studies. The high-speed linear towing tank facility was recently renovated, and was officially rededicated in December 2006, as the highlight of a model testing conference hosted at Stevens. Facility upgrades included widening and deepening the tank to increase cross-sectional area, the addition of underwater viewing ports for photography and measurements, and improvements to the numerous electronic systems used for control, monitoring, and data acquisition. The laboratory facilities include a comprehensive machine shop (the largest on the Stevens campus) and an electronics/instrumentation shop. These shops provide an in-house capacity to design and fabricate various specialized items of apparatus which may be required for experimental studies, but for which there is no readily available commercial source.

3、Technogenesis

Stevens employs Technogenesis, which is a unique system of scholarship and practical courses, to create an overall learning environment designed to encourage innovation with the ultimate goal of establishing new technology-based businesses. Technogenesis is a trademarked word that is now owned by Stevens but was first used in 1993 by Technogenesis, Inc. (of Mineola, NY) . Technogenesis is a word that has no true meaning, but is used to explain everything at Stevens.

4、Facts

The average SAT score of Stevens is 1350 and 58% of the undergraduates come from the top 10% of their high school classes with an average high school GPA of 3.8. The average SAT score of the students in the Accelerated Pre-Medical program is 1430.

The engineering curricula require 149 to 155 credit hours of study. Stevens has retained the broad-based engineering curriculum that its founders considered the cornerstone of a complete engineer. The large number of courses, many in engineering disciplines outside of one's direct concentration, account for the large total number of credits. Students in the dual degree program with NYU take 200 credits in five years. Many students find this workload very challenging.

The Gourman Report ranks Stevens 30th in the nation in engineering, and all of its engineering programs in the "Very Strong" category.

The Princeton Review (unaffiliated with Princeton University) has ranked Stevens among the Top 25 Most Entrepreneurial Campuses in 2004.
