The aerospace and defense industry, the engineering services industry, and the software development industry are just a few of the areas in which SIT grads find work. The most popular field is the financial services industry. Former SIT students do not typically enter the consulting industry industry; in fact, less than five percent of graduates find work in this area, making it the least likely field for this group to enter. True to type, SIT alumni go from receiving above-average SAT scores to landing well-paid positions in the workforce. Former SIT graduates tend to bring in $96K.


Students who graduate from this school are more likely to be male — the male-to-female ratio is 3 to 1. After graduation, women go on to earn an average of approximately $77K per year compared to men, who earn about $97K.


Among SIT graduates, the biggest earners are Senior Software Engineers, who haul in around $109K on average. Next on the list are Senior Systems Engineers and Information Technology Project Managers, bringing in $100K and $92K, respectively. Sliding in near the bottom are Project Engineers, who report earnings of $69K.


Many SIT grads end up living in Jersey City, deeming it the most popular city for former students of this school. It is also not uncommon to find former SIT students living and working in New York — this top-paying city is a popular destination with a median salary of $102K. Though Morristown takes the cake for lowest pay among SIT grads (the median salary is around $70K there), it remains a common destination for former students. In addition, SIT grads flock to neighboring Parsippany as well as Newark.


Former SIT students head to U.S. Army for above-average paychecks of $98K. In contrast, below-average pay is the norm at Schindler Elevator Corporation; median compensation there comes out to $67K.

Degree Major

A graduate with a Master of Engineering (MEng / ME), Computer Engineering (CE) from SIT can rake in a whopping about $146K per year, more than any other degree from this school. Annual salaries for those with a Master of Science (MS), Pharmaceutical Sciences (PS) are the lowest of the pack, earning approximately $61K.


Many former SIT students are familiar with Project Management, and slightly less than a third of grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized. Stevens Institute of Technology grads with Project Management experience garner salaries that are 3 percent more than other grads' salaries. Experience with Engineering Design, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Excel is highly valued as well.

Benefits and Perks

Only two-fifths of alumni for this school enjoy paid vacation days and about one in four survey participants get paid sick time. Nearly all respondents set aside retirement funds in an employer-sponsored 401(k). Health benefits extend to nearly all alumni, and the greater part of former students also receive dental coverage. Additional benefits handed to Stevens Institute of Technology alumni include life insurance, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Compensation averages $86K for Polytechnic Institute of New York University alumni, making their earnings most comparable to SIT grads. Drexel University, Clark University, and Duquesne University are also similar to SIT.
