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!

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.
Stevens Institute of Technology is a great place to get a good education and return on investment. However, it is not without its faults. Currently, Stevens is undergoing a change in which the school wants to misplace a lot of programs it has previously offered, ones that benefited students greatly. There are always those professors that are notorious among students for being a good professor or a terrible one. While some professors are definitely hard than some others, Stevens ensures that students are prepared for after graduation through the education that is provided.
