Our Partnership with Buskerud University

Buskerud University College in Kongsberg, Norway and Stevens Institute of Technology have partnered to provide cutting edge Systems Engineering courses and curriculum since 2006. Participants in the program earn a joint degree in Systems Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology and Buskerud University, and participate in a both module and traditional format courses in Norway, as well as spending a semester on-campus as part of the Stevens Systems Engineering academic and research community.

The Systems Engineering program at Stevens is part of the School of Systems and Enterprises and has been recognized by government and industry sponsors across the country and around the world.  Our program has been designed for practitioners by practitioners who utilize on their extensive experience in industry and government to provide a balanced blend of academic rigor with practical experience as they teach in the program.  Stevens has recently been selected by the DoD as the lead university to run the DoD's first Systems Engineering Research Center.

About the School of Systems and Enterprises

The School of Systems and Enterprises provides interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary education and research rooted in systems thinking. We focus on applying a "systems approach" to better understand the nature of problems and opportunities, and to conceive novel concepts and solutions that achieve breakthrough results across a wide range of domains, including defense, homeland security, intelligence, nuclear weapons, communications, space, infrastructure, finance and business solutions. While maintaining an emphasis on technical systems, we pay particular attention to the interplay between these systems and the human enterprises that design and develop them, operate and use them, and sustain and maintain them. Our research and education are grounded in a deep understanding of the state of practice in real-world applications and we are committed to transferring new knowledge that can be utilized by practitioners to enhance their effectiveness.
