Careers & Student Outcomes

2023 SSE Graduates Achieve 100 Percent Career Outcomes Rate

The results are in, and 2023 was another exemplary year for graduates of Stevens’ School of Systems and Enterprises. According to the recently released Undergraduate Class of 2023 Career Outcomes Report, 100% of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISE) and Engineering Management (EM) graduates achieved desirable outcomes.

The School of Systems and Enterprises (SSE) has three undergraduate programs: Industrial & Systems Engineering, Engineering Management and Software Engineering.

It was another banner year for the Software Engineering (SSW) program, in particular. For the second straight academic year, Software Engineering graduates earned the highest average starting salaries ($96,800) among all engineering programs at Stevens.

Industrial & Systems Engineering and Engineering Management both maintained their perfect career outcomes rate year over year.

“The findings from the 2023 Career Outcomes Report are more evidence of the value a degree from the School of Systems and Enterprises possesses,” said Anthony Barrese, interim dean of SSE. “Whether you are looking to enter the workforce and put your newfound skills to use or continue your education at graduate school, the School of Systems and Enterprises continues to open doors for students everywhere.”

All Stevens programs focus on a practical and hands-on curriculum that prepares students for what they will encounter in industry. Employers around the country clearly value the knowledge base that a Stevens graduate brings with them to the workforce.

“The Co-op program at Stevens has been extremely valuable, giving me the opportunity to apply what I have learned in the classroom to real-world problems,” said Michael DelGaudio ’23, a software engineer at Microsoft. “I am grateful for the experiences that have made me into the person I am today. I’ve learned to work hard, persevere and think outside the box – invaluable skills that will serve me well in my future endeavors.”

This success comes on the heels of SSE's excellent showing in the 2023 ANSARY Entrepreneurship Competition, in which a group of Industrial & Systems Engineering students finished in first place for their work with the U.S. Coast Guard, and two Software Engineering teams were finalists.

Stevens-wide, an impressive 96.4% of graduates — with an 81.6% knowledge rate — achieved their desired career outcomes and had an average salary of $85,200. For the second year in a row, 99% of female graduates achieved career outcomes, emphasizing Stevens’ ongoing commitment to diversity in STEM.
