New Ph.D. Student Orientation


Ph.D. Student Orientation is designed to introduce new students to doctoral studies at Stevens, including key expectations and milestones. Throughout the day-long program you will meet and learn from faculty, staff, and current doctoral students about the many resources that are available to support you on this journey. You will also have a unique opportunity to tour several laboratories that are typically not open to the public, to learn about the cutting-edge research that is being done at Stevens. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Stevens and introducing you to the faculty, staff, and administrators that will guide you through your doctoral journey. Below you will find the agenda for the event, a video showcasing our beautiful campus, and resources you can refer to throughout your first semester.
