Stevens Institute of Technology

Hoboken, NJwww.stevens.edu
Stevens Institute of Technology's expertise is in the interdisciplinary study of sciences, engineering, technology and business. Its maritime research center, for example, takes advantage of the school's location just outside New York City to study the challenges facing coastal cities. Its Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education, Stevens partners with New Jersey elementary and high schools to improve science and math education with new technology tools. The institute attracts a high-achieving cadre of about 3,000 undergraduate students and offers a low student-to-faculty ratio. There's a tangible payoff, too: Grads' salaries after attending Stevens are more than double the national average. There are over 100 groups targeted at students, including the Anime Critics Union, the Stevens Chess Club, and the Stand-Up Society. Want to get off campus? Head to Hoboken, also called the Mile Square City, where you can check out grassy green lawns on the river or stop by Carlo's Bakery, the store from the TV show "Cake Boss."
