FE 800 Selected Topics in Financial Engineering is designed for Financial Engineering graduate students to solve specific problems. FE 800 is provided each semester since 2012 as the final project course in the Master of Financial Engineering program curriculum. The instructor, collaborating with other faculties and companies, proposes a wide range of topics and problems for students to choose.
The Lab integrates the latest hardware and software technologies, accessing real-time data and historical data, supporting innovative research into the most common and urgent problems in contemporary finance.
Lab staff seize opportunity to collaborate with other faculties in Financial Engineering department, other facilities and labs in Stevens Institute of Technology and companies from the industry. Financial Engineering itself is a multidisciplinary subject and this enables us to both apply our methods to and borrow theories from different fields. Current joint projects include SHiFT project, FE Virtual Lab and Surge project.
