Frederick William Stevens (11 November 1847 – 3 March 1900) was an English architectural engineer who worked for the British colonial government in India. Stevens' most notable design was the railway station Victoria Terminus in Bombay (in 1996 renamed the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai).
Stevens also designed the Municipal Corporation Building, the Royal Alfred Sailor's Home, the Post-Office Mews at Apollo Bunder, the head offices of the BB&CI Railway at Churchgate, and the Oriental Life Assurance Offices at the Flora Fountain. Stevens' name can be seen on the Terminus dedication plaque that the lead character, Jamal Malik, leans against near the conclusion of the 2008 hit film Slumdog Millionaire.
