Graduates of SIT head into a range of vocations when it comes to work; the aerospace and defense industry, the engineering services industry, and the consulting industry are just a few professional areas popular among alumni. The majority of alumni accept jobs in the financial services industry. 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 approximately $96K on average.


In the SIT alumni community, men make a median salary of $97K compared to their female counterparts, who earn $77K. The school's graduates who responded to the survey are largely male (the male-to-female ratio is 3 to 1).


The most generous salaries among SIT alumni are reportedly earned by Information Technology Managers, whose median earnings come to around $119K, followed by Senior Systems Engineers ($99K) and Information Technology Project Managers ($94K). Project Engineers face rather mediocre compensation — average salaries are actually the lowest at about $69K.


Home to a large number of SIT alums, Morristown, N.J. is by far the most attractive city for these former students. New York, N.Y. is another hot spot for SIT grads, where salaries rank at the top of the pay scale (compensation averages out to $106K). Though Jersey City, N.J. takes the cake for lowest pay among SIT grads (the median salary is $70K there), it remains a common destination for former students. Neighboring Newark, N.J. is another common pick among SIT grads, along with Parsippany, N.J.

Degree Major

Among the highest-paid SIT alumni are those with a Master of Science (MS), Management Information Systems (MIS) — they earn close to $125K on average per year. Graduates holding a Bachelor of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering (BME) fare the worst in terms of compensation with an average yearly salary of around $60K.


Project Management is a common skill among SIT alumni — just under a third of grads mention using it at work. For Stevens Institute of Technology grads, proficiency in Project Management warrants a paycheck that is 3 percent more than other alumni salaries. Competency in Engineering Design, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Excel also warrants excellent remuneration.

Benefits and Perks

Only one-third of alumni for this school enjoy paid vacation days and about one-fifth of alumni get paid sick time. In an effort to save up for the years ahead, the vast majority of grads contribute to a 401(k). Health benefits extend to the vast majority of alums, and a large number of respondents also receive dental coverage. Additional benefits handed to Stevens Institute of Technology alumni include life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, tuition reimbursement, and a casual working environment.

Related Schools

Median pay for Polytechnic Institute of New York University grads is about $86K, making their salaries most similar to those of SIT grads. Other schools similar to SIT include Drexel University, Clark University, and Duquesne University.
