From the School

Located in Hoboken, NJ on the Hudson River overlooking the Manhattan skyline, Stevens is a high-energy, highly engaged campus community in which hands-on learning complements academic experiences. The combination of a rigorous curriculum, a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship, and tremendous opportunities for experiential learning aligned with industry needs has proven to be a winning formula for Stevens graduates over the years.

Recognized for putting the “hire” in higher education, a Stevens degree is a passport to a successful and stimulating career. Exceptional opportunities for internships, undergraduate research and cooperative education prepare students with skills that are in demand by the world’s most influential employers, because they are skills that impact industries and innovations that drive our economy.

Students choose from 35 undergraduate majors in Business, Humanities, Arts, Computer Science, Engineering and the Sciences; many students double major or choose to pursue both bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Graduates are highly skilled in creating solutions at the intersections of disciplines and can lead in today’s complex, cross-functional and highly technical environments, and have always fared exceptionally well in career and graduate school placement. Stevens is consistently ranked among the nation’s elite for total return on investment and mid-career salaries of graduates — #17 and #12 in the nation respectively, according to reports by PayScale. Our graduates are recruited into highly competitive positions and accepted into top graduate programs: 96% of the Class of 2016 secured outcomes within six months of graduation. Stevens’ 3,115 undergraduate students come from more than 45 states and 68 countries, creating a diverse, dynamic environment. Stevens also boasts an outstanding campus life — students will find more than 75 student clubs and organizations and 26 NCAA Division III athletics teams.

Students Say

Stevens Institute of Technology is a private research university just across the Hudson from New York City, which students say offers a great "return on investment." Job placement does appear to be pretty stellar for Stevens grads, thanks in part to a robust co-op program and a career center that works diligently to ensure students "are on the right track." Stevens students also make a point of highlighting the school's "focus on innovation." And they are quick to call out its "strong engineering program." STEM programs are the focus here, though Stevens offers a growing list of majors in business and the arts, as well. Undergrads appreciate that academics are challenging yet "also flexible, allowing students time to make up their minds about which field they'd like to pursue." Students benefit from "smaller class sizes, which allows for more interaction and a greater focus on you as a student." While some undergrads lament a few professors who "lack the ability to engage and inspire students," others assure us that those instructors are an anomaly. As one pleased student shares, "A remarkable amount of professors are extraordinarily helpful and generous when it comes to assisting the students, offering research opportunities, offering guidance and advice, and much more." A fellow student heartily agrees concluding, "Overall my academic experience has been incredible and all professors are willing to help you in their own time and stay both early and late to make sure every student is accounted for."

Students Say

With several career fairs held through the year and more than 300 employers recruiting and otherwise involved on campus, The Stevens Career Center does an excellent job of facilitating connections between companies and organizations that want to hire their grads: “You're free to get as much help from the Career Center as you want.” Stevens also uses Handshake, a mobile job-posting and recruitment resource utilized by hundreds of schools and organizations. Additionally, the Career Center hosts workshops and seminars, arranges co-ops and internships, and sets up one-day job shadowing externships during the winter recess. All seniors at Stevens, regardless of their major, are required to complete a Capstone Project. Seniors are encouraged to develop their Capstone Projects with the collaboration of an industrial sponsor, providing another route for students to secure post-college employment. It also “really helps to be located so close to the city, as there are tons of opportunities available to you as a Stevens student.”

Similar to a senior thesis, all seniors at Stevens, regardless of their major, are required to complete a Senior Capstone Project. All of these projects are shown at the annual Innovation Expo, an event that's open to the Stevens community and the general public. Seniors are encouraged to develop their Capstone Projects with the collaboration of an industrial sponsor, providing another route for students to secure post-college employment. The Capstone Project, whether you're an electrical engineer, an information systems major, or a visual arts and technology student, should be seen as the culminating experience of a particular program of study and stem both from personal interest and future career goals. Students are assigned Capstone advisers to help guide them through the process of writing their reports and presentations and preparing their projects for exhibition. For one 2014 graduate, who pursued a dual bachelor's/master's degree in mechanical engineering and engineering management, respectively, her senior Capstone Project consisted of the rigorous solar decathlon, which spanned two years. "Anyone can learn math calculations and science information," she says, "but being able to get that information across within a group and have it be successful and optimized is another skill." Several projects that were conceived in the classroom have gone on to become full-fledged businesses. Senior Capstone joins a plethora of hands-on learning opportunities at Stevens, including The Stevens Career Center's Cooperative Education Program, the engineering Design Spine curriculum, and the newly launched Stevens Venture Center. The strategy seems to be a hit. According to the most recent career outcomes report, within six months of graduation, 96 percent of the graduating class had secured their intended outcome in fields of their choice.

Students Say

Stevens Institute of Technology is full of "some of the brightest, most diligent, hardworking and supportive individuals" you'll ever come across. And underneath their "fabulously nerdy" exteriors," you will find students with wide ranging interests and personalities. As one savvy undergrad explains, "I have friends that are into cars and building things like dune buggies and others that are into music and creating beats. Each person has a spot here and something to offer to their peers." They've also proven themselves to be "friendly" and "supportive." For example, "when walking on campus with heavy boxes or books, someone always offers to help. When having trouble understanding a problem in the library, a random stranger may offer assistance." Another impressed student chimes in, "Everyone here is a high-achiever and understands teamwork and cooperation lead to success rather than competition and divisiveness." And they are all united in their desire to "excel in life and begin an incredible career post-graduation." This probably explains why "most people [here] don't party a lot." Overall, Stevens manages to cultivate a "very diverse" student body, with undergrads hailing "from many different backgrounds and nationalities." Fortunately, "the school's size provides an excellent setting for a common sense of community and togetherness."

Students Say

The workload at Stevens is pretty demanding, so it's no surprise that the "library is always full, at every time of day." Students still manage to find plenty of moments to kick back, relax, and take advantage of everything Stevens has to offer beyond the classroom. For starters, undergrads can participate in "a wide variety of clubs, from archery to equestrian." "Greek life is also very big at Stevens and…a fantastic way for students to enjoy themselves after a long week of hard work." Gaming is "extremely popular" as well: "LAN parties are weekly and fill up an entire lecture hall and go on all night long." Don't think this is a crew of couch potatoes, though—many assert that they're "very active, whether in club sports or just picking up a game or going to the gym." They also love to experience everything hometown Hoboken has to offer. One student explains, "A lot of time is spent eating and going to dining establishments in Hoboken. Washington Street Wednesday is very popular"—in which students can use their standard on-campus meal swipe card at local restaurants. And should they tire of Hoboken for some reason, Stevens students have easy access to New York City; the school is a mere 10–15 minute PATH ride away.
