The complex will meet the research and instructional needs of approximately 800 Stevens students annually working in such areas as robotics, underwater systems, land- and water-based vehicles and ocean and weather sensors.

“With their significant gift, the American Bureau of Shipping contributes to the continuation of a proud 142-year tradition at Stevens – the advancement of knowledge and technology in support of the maritime community through innovative research and education,” said Stevens Provost George Korfiatis.

“The new facility will provide Stevens students with access to cutting-edge technologies so they can explore the frontiers of many vital science and engineering disciplines, especially those that contribute to the safety and security of our nation’s maritime resources,” said Stevens President Nariman Farvardin. “As we work to educate and train the next generation of innovators to create and apply new knowledge to the benefit of society, we are grateful to the American Bureau of Shipping for their generous support.”
