At Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, the undergraduate class of 2014 did very well on the job market. Nearly three quarters of its 563 graduates are employed while 15% are in graduate school. The majority who’ve found jobs landed impressive starting salaries. Computer science majors, on average, were hired at $71,500, while the high salary for that major was $102,000. Chemical engineers also did well, with average starting salaries of $72,100 and a high of $100,000. One reason Stevens students get such well-paying jobs: almost the entire class majors in some subset of engineering or computer science.
