Great engineering curriculum. Very rigorous, but being determined is the key. Form study groups or reach out to professors for help. Stevens gives its engineering majors a flavor of every branch of engineering before they go out into the workforce. Take advantage of every opportunity the school has to offer for help - tutoring center, office hours, or a study group with friends. It will be worth it once you have a highly coveted "Bachelor of Engineering" Degree!

I really like the location of the college and the unique programs that the school provides. I am currently taking Quantitative Finance and I absolutely love it. The perfect mix of computer science, mathematics, and finance all in one major makes Quantitative Finance such a desirable major. The only concerns I have with the college is the constant construction around the campus. It is very noisy, but they are building a new building to add more residential dorms, which is essential. Also, the cost of attending the university is little too high compared to other nearby colleges, but otherwise it is definitely worth it.
Even though we graduated during a recession, my friends and I all landed high paying engineering, computer science, and business jobs. The co-op program is amazing and finishing with real work experience puts you ahead, as well as the campus recruiting. I had better internships and experiences than friends who went to NYU and were basically pointed to Monster.com and told good luck. The campus is fun if you get involved in clubs, but it is a smaller school so you have to be willing to get out there or go to the city. I made life long friends and we all keep in touch and have 6 figure salaries; it's a school focused on ROI for your career in STEM.
