''Technology'' in Stellaris is divided into 3 research areas with each area corresponding with one of the research resources: {{iconify|Engineering|21px}}, {{iconify|Physics|21px}} and {{iconify|Society|21px}}. Additionally, each of the ~300 techs belongs to one of 12 subcategories divided between the areas (most appearing pre-dominantly in one area though not exclusively).

There are three different main ''research areas'' in-game, with each area corresponding with one of the research resources. Additionally, each research area has multiple subcategories, for a total of 12 such subcategories, and every tech belongs to one of these subcategories.

Although the underlying technology system is based on the familiar ''tech tree'' structure, it does away with its standard interaction/presentation in favor of the ''card shuffle'' approach. This injects a semi-random element into research, making it somewhat less predictable as well as more non-linear.
