Named after the Stevens family, who were known as “America’s First Family of Inventors,” the college opened in 1870 after Edwin A. Stevens left money for its establishment in his will. Stevens Institute of Technology was the first college in the U.S. dedicated to mechanical engineering, as well as one of the oldest technological universities in the nation. The school’s motto is “Through adversity to the stars.” Two people affiliated with the university have won the Nobel Prize: Frederick Reines, who graduated in 1939 and won for physics, and Irving Langmuir, who taught chemistry from 1906 to 1909 and won for chemistry. Notable alumni include filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, YouTube star Marques Brownlee, mechanical engineer Frederick Winslow Taylor, businessman Sandeep Lakhmi Mathrani, U.S. Representative Greg Gianforte and engineer Beatrice Hicks. The school’s colors are gray and Stevens red, and its mascot is Attila the Duck. Its sports affiliations are Division III – Empire 8, ECAC and MAISA.
