Graduates of SIT are found working in a number of different fields including the aerospace and defense industry, the engineering services industry, and the consulting industry. The financial services industry is the sector most highly represented among alumni. Former SIT students do not typically enter IT services; in fact, less than five percent of graduates find work in this area, making it the least likely field for this group to enter. It is quite common for SIT grads — a demographic that scores high on the SATs — to earn top-notch salaries in the workforce. Former SIT graduates bring in $92K on average.


In the SIT alumni professional community, VPs of Information Technology make the highest median pay ($146K), though Information Technology Managers (around $120K), and Senior Software Engineers ($111K) are close competitors. Salaries are anything but generous for Mechanical Engineers, whose earnings rank lowest on the pay scale at about $71K.


Many SIT grads end up living in New York, N.Y., deeming it the most popular city for former students of this school. Another city that attracts a wealth of SIT grads is Los Angeles, Calif.; given its high compensation ($105K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. For comparison, the lowest-paying city popular with SIT alumni is Morristown, N.J., which offers a median salary of approximately $55K. Other popular cities for SIT alumni include nearby Jersey City, N.J. and Newark, N.J.

Degree Major

A Master of Science (MS), Information Systems (IS) earns SIT students the most money after college (an average $134K per year). A Master of Engineering (MEng / ME), Mechanical Engineering (ME) commands less pay, and these degree-holders face median pay of $62K.


Approximately one in four SIT grads wind up using Project Management at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. Competency in C++ translates into above-average pay for Stevens Institute of Technology grads — they earn 13 percent more than their fellow graduates. Microsoft Excel, Engineering Design, and Microsoft Office are among other dominant skills.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only one-third of alumni are paid for vacation and just one-fifth of alumni for sick time. A large number of respondents take advantage of a 401(k) plan. Most respondents receive health insurance, and a large number of alumni get dental coverage. Graduates of Stevens Institute of Technology are also recipients of life insurance, a casual working environment, tuition reimbursement, and a company-subsidized cell phone.

Related Schools

Clarkson University grads bring in salaries of around $96K, making them the most similar to SIT alumni in terms of earnings. Other schools similar to SIT include the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, Drexel University, and Clark University.
