4 College Sophomore

Academics: Co-op helps a ton, the work experience is excellent. The classes themselves are good, major specific courses are very well done but more general areas such as math and freshman courses can be poorly done.

Academics: Mechanical Engineering is one of the most popular majors at Stevens. Being a mechanical engineering student I am able to communicate with a vast number of other mechanical engineering students, as well as educated professors, advisers, and other faculty in the same field. Still, the workload can be very stressful sometimes. It makes it easier to know that there are a lot of others now going through and who have been through the same thing that I can communicate with. Internship and job opportunities are fantastic at Stevens. Stevens has one of the top career development programs in the country. They are great at offering a co-op program which makes it easy for students to gain experience in their respective field while still able to be a full time student. Research and internship opportunities are apparent at Stevens as well.

Academics: Workload is tough and a lot. The variety of majors isn't really there but it is something that is being worked on. The curriculum is strict but it is like that for all engineers.

Academics: The work load is the worst. Professors expect a lot from their students especially the mechanical engineering department. They can be sympathetic when they clearly see students being worn out from other courses but it's rather rare. The mechanical engineering department has quite number of courses that help you spread out and find interests like the biomechanics that was just added. One thing that I do enjoy the most is that although professors are strict they are always willing to take the time and go over material with you individually if you need help.
