Collaborations with Stevens Institute of Technology



The Faculty of Integrated Technologies (FIT),Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) started to function in Brunei Darussalam in collaboration with the Stevens Institute of Technology (SIT) of the United States on academic support, curriculum development, general academic advice, benchmarking, validation input and external moderation, annual review for engineering programmes and research, etc.


The Stevens Institute of Technology, based in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA, is one of the leading engineering institutes in the world. The institute was established over a hundred years ago and is one of the first engineering institutes that were awarded with the ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accreditation (awarded in 1936). The institute is renowned for producing important and world-famous inventors and well regarded Engineers.


The collaboration would facilitate programmes in FIT to achieve accreditation from ABET, a prestigious, internationally recognized engineering accreditation body.


One of the nation's Vision 2035 strategies is to develop human resources to grow the national economy to at least 2.5 times compared to 2009. FIT will lead in producing engineering graduates with relevant research-led training and industrial practices for the nation's needs. With its broad-based trans-disciplinary programmes, FIT will be geared towards producing graduates for the industrial sector such as the oil and gas industries, defence, security, health, education, finance and banking sectors.


The Faculty of Integrated Technologies has started working with Stevens Institute of Technology, to develop a unique and innovative curriculum which meets the GenNext philosophy. The curriculum is broad-based, with unique features related to multi-disciplinary engineering knowledge creation. The curriculum will cultivate solid core engineering skills along with value added features such as professionalism, entrepreneurial insight, environment awareness and understanding the social impacts associated with the use of technologies. By a combination of design-centric curriculum and industry relevant learning outcomes, FIT will uniquely influence engineers who will help in the creation of innovative products and services for new investments in Brunei and in the region.


With 140 years of innovation, the Stevens Institute of Technology's  curriculum is built around highly relevant and applied education. With a world-class faculty and state-of-the-art programmes in business, engineering and the sciences, SIT is one of the USA's leading research and learning universities.
