Professionally, the aerospace and defense industry, the engineering services industry, and the consulting industry are popular business areas among SIT alumni. The most highly represented industry among alumni is the financial services industry. The software development industry is perhaps the least commonly worked industry among SIT grads, with less than five percent of former students experienced in this area. Reminiscent of their reportedly high performance on the SAT, SIT alumni often collect high salaries as well. The average salary for a grad from SIT is about $94K.


There's a noticeable difference between the genders; where the average man hauls in around $96K after graduating from SIT, the average woman earns only $77K. The school's graduates who responded to the survey are largely male (the male-to-female ratio is 3 to 1).


The most lucrative professionals among SIT alumni are VPs of Information Technology; they earn a median annual salary of approximately $136K. Also approaching the top of the pay scale at $120K and $97K, respectively, are Information Technology Managers and Senior Systems Engineers. Collecting the smallest paychecks are Mechanical Engineers — they bring in $83K.


Many SIT students are Newark, N.J.-bound following college. It is no surprise that New York, N.Y., which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is $105K), is another of the most popular spots for former SIT students. The city with the lowest median paycheck frequented by SIT alumni is Jersey City, N.J., where earnings average about $72K. Other popular cities for SIT alumni include nearby Morristown, N.J. and Parsippany, N.J.

Degree Major

Among the highest-paid SIT alumni are those with a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (EE) — they earn close to $125K on average per year. The degree that warrants the lowest level of financial compensation is a Master of Engineering (MEng / ME), Mechanical Engineering (ME) ($61K on average annually).


Project Management is a popular skill among SIT alumni, with just under one in three grads reporting using it on the job. Stevens Institute of Technology grads who have experience with Project Management can expect to make 4 percent more than other alumni (approximately $98K on average). Other prime know-hows include Engineering Design, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Office.

Benefits and Perks

Though vacation and sick days are paid for some, these benefits are reported by the minority of graduates (one in three grads and one in five survey participants, respectively). Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; almost all grads are rewarded with health insurance and most graduates report dental coverage, too. The vast majority of graduates save up for retirement through a 401(k) plan. Stevens Institute of Technology grads also enjoy benefits like life insurance, tuition reimbursement, a company-subsidized cell phone, and a casual working environment.

Related Schools

Polytechnic Institute of New York University grads bring in salaries of around $85K, making them the most similar to SIT alumni in terms of earnings. Drexel University, Clark University, and Duquesne University are also similar to SIT.
