Technology drives every program at Stevens, from medical device design to cybersecurity to our music and arts coursework. And increasingly, technology-focused businesses are managed in highly entrepreneurial fashion.

That's why at Stevens, we teach you to think like a tech entrepreneur from Day One. 

Creating innovations for both large and small companies requires a recognition and ability to solve the right problem. Many innovations fail, not because of a fatal technology flaw, but because the developer failed to understand the problem they were solving.

Stevens Institute of Technology is one of just two universities nationwide to teach entrepreneurial thinking to first-year engineering students. Students in the Technology and Entreprenneurial Thinking class interview potential customers to uncover unmet needs and form teans to brainstorm new apps, ideas and services. Simulations and case studies from Harvard Business Review help enhance students’ knowledge about important concepts such lean startup and jobs to be done. Students work together in class to iterate, refine and pivot these ideas over the course of semester, and they end the semester by producing an explainer video.

Most students complete their Stevens undergraduate careers with a Senior Design Project, another exercise in designing new products and services as part of a team and presenting the results before a panel of professionals. Some of these ideas turn into real startups. Some of them win cash prizes in the university's annual Ansary Entrepreneurship Competition.

It's fun. But it's also enlightening and zjbboiler.comcational.
