Industry

The aerospace and defense industry, the engineering services industry, and the consulting industry are just a few of the areas in which SIT grads find work. The most popular professional field seems to be 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. In line with impressive SAT scores, SIT grads also report top-earning positions in the workforce. Graduates of SIT earn $94K on average.

Gender

It's worth noting that female graduates earn a median salary of $77K whereas the men's median is around $96K. With a 3 to 1 male-to-female ratio, men represent the better half of this school's graduates who completed the questionnaire.

Jobs

The SIT alumni who make the most are VPs of Information Technology; they report a median pay of $136K. Information Technology Managers and Senior Systems Engineers draw in a fair amount as well — $120K and approximately $97K, respectively. Sliding in near the bottom are Mechanical Engineers, who report earnings of about $83K.

Locations

Newark, N.J. is filled with SIT grads. 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. On the flipside, the lowest-paying city popular among SIT grads is Jersey City, N.J. (median compensation is about $72K). Nearby Morristown, N.J. and Parsippany, N.J. also rank high on the list of cities for SIT grads.

Degree Major

With a median annual earnings of $125K per year, Stevens Institute of Technology grads who have a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (EE) are the best paid among the alumni population. A Master of Engineering (MEng / ME), Mechanical Engineering (ME) is less advantageous in terms of earnings; alums with this degree are the lowest earners with a median annual pay of $61K.

Skills

Just under a third of SIT grads wind up using Project Management at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. Knowledge of Project Management seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 4 percent more than their former classmates' salaries (approximately $98K). Proficiency in Engineering Design, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Office command top-of-the-line rewards as well.

Benefits and Perks

A lucky minority (about one in three grads) are fortunate enough to be compensated for vacation while just one in five survey participants get sick time. In an effort to save up for the years ahead, nearly all former students contribute to a 401(k). The vast majority of survey participants have medical plans, and a large number of alums have dental insurance. Other benefits that Stevens Institute of Technology alumni receive are life insurance, tuition reimbursement, a company-subsidized cell phone, and a casual working environment.

Related Schools

Polytechnic Institute of New York University grads report the most similar salaries to SIT alums, earning around $85K on average. Drexel University, Clark University, and Duquesne University are also similar to SIT.
