Angelica engineering is a complex discipline and popular choice for international students looking to choose a major to study. An engineering degree is absolutely a versatile choice for students looking to work in a number of different fields. Engineers have a role in creating a variety of structures and products, from airports to zippers. If that sounds intriguing, consider a career in engineering. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects employment growth for these workers, with nearly 140,000 new jobs expected for engineers over the 2018–28 decade. And in 2020, engineers had a median annual wage of $98,500—more than twice the median wage for all workers.

CORNELL UNIVERSITY • https://www.cornell.edu
Composed of 14 colleges and schools, Cornell offers over 4,000 courses in a wide range of undergraduate, graduate, and professional study areas.

Narrow it down to: where you will be studying (off-campus or on campus) or location (commute, safety), costs-financial aid-scholarships, timeframe (full-time coursework vs. part-time enrollment and work; numbers of years to completion), support system (family, network, friends) and job prospects after graduation (statistics on salaries, sectors, and brand recognition).

Make a short of list of schools, discuss each of them with your parents and talk with your school counselor about your career goals. You might also consider contacting some of the schools and find out if you can talk with a couple of alumni about their experiences in the engineering program.


Stay well,
Natasha

Hi Angelica,

Chet's answers are solid for the New York City area. One additional one I'd highly recommend is Steven's Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. It's across the river from NYC and has some awesome engineering programs.

There's also New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT as it's known by locals). I'm not all that familiar with it but one of my collegue's daughter goes there and he thinks it good.

I would say Columbia and Rutgers lead the list. Of course Rutgers is in Newark, but it is close. A short train gets you to Princeton as well. Of course, a slightly longer train ride gets you to many great schools in Philadelphia, Boston, etc.

Specifically to NYC Cooper Union is a good school, if pretty nerdy. Fordham and City College arent bad, either.
Thank you! Angelica P. Translate
