Stevens Institute of Technology Reviews
Having a great time so far. I love it but i wish we would stop hiding the problems and instead just work with the students willing to put in the work to fix them.
Stevens Institute of Technology is providing me with a degree where I will be a top candidate in my field of study.
Stevens has very good academic programs. Most of the professors are very knowledgeable in their fields and do a good job teaching. However, some of the professors are there to do research and have no interest in teaching, yet are forced to teach a class anyway. You end up learning next to nothing in these classes because the professor could not care less, which is particularly concerning as some of these classes are really important for your major. God help you if you end up with Mukund Iyengar.
I started going to Stevens as an international graduate student. I am habitual to Indian food so I wasn't expecting the campus dining hall food to be so good and have a vast variety. Plus their Washington Wednesday part is great for students to be able to use their meal swipes off campus.
Stevens allowed me to spread my wings. In Junior year I joined a fraternity, and the brothers were great. I was able to be recruited right out of college, with a great offer. The professors were there to always help out. I was also able to obtain, online my Masters Degree in Systems Engineering.
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.
Extremely expensive but flexible major and has room to maximize your education and network, can make the most out of your major while doing your undegrad here
it's a chill college, fun place to grind for a bright future. of course, there are certain issues with this little community, such as the constantly "under maintenance" gate, and unstable food quality. but if looking for a college that is fun and also very academic, this is the place to go
The campus is absolutely gorgeous and the class load is bearable. Teachers and students are very friendly and welcoming. Campus location provides easy access to New York City and the cute town of Hoboken.
Stevens is the perfect match for you if you are looking for a well-paying career after investing in it. Do NOT let the price tag scare you!
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!
Worst school for AI. Professors and staff openly say AI research should be stopped and cognitive reasoning 'would end the world' and 'hope it never happens.' If interested in AI research and innovation stay away from this openly AI hostile school. Treat people poorly. Contacted new AI department never heard back and now working elsewhere.
Stevens Institute of Technology gives students the tools they need to succeed. They allows students to interact amongst all types of students by bringing them together in a warm, friendly community. The teachers are dedicated to bringing the best out of students, and the students are dedicated to bringing out the best in each other.
Everybody is so kind and i’ve made several forever friends. There’s something for everyone, and my major is 100% placement. Some of the freshmen teachers really aren’t the best, but the deans and academic apartment are willing to work with you. I feel like i’m learning a lot and am in a positive environment.
While a little pricey, its location and connection to many companies will certainly benefit anyone that puts a little effort into it. Academically, the coursework is fairly light and professors are more than willing to curve grades to your favor if you put your best effort and reach out to them. The area also gives student access to many activities in their free time, all within a 5 mile radius.
As a commuter, it's hard to find places to lounge around on campus (especially if it rains). A lot of self teaching!! Community around campus is one of the best I've seen. Variety of food available all within walking distance. Safe to walk around at night and early mornings commutes. The best way to study is to find a group of people and teach/ work together. Professors are hard to reach.
Stevens Institute of Technology is an incredibly small school with an even more incredibly helpful staff of professors. Most professors encourage students to give them feedback throughout the course and will try different ways of teaching something if necessary.
