Career Outcomes:

Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science - Undergraduate Alumni Outcomes

Among 2015-2016 Hofstra graduates who graduated from the Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science, 98% of the respondents report that within one year of graduation they were employed or attending/planning to attend graduate school. Among those Hofstra graduates who graduated from the Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science and who reported salary, the median annual self-reported salary was $60,000.

Among 2015-2016 Hofstra graduates 100% of the Computer Science and 97% of the Engineering respondents reported that within one year of graduation they were employed or attending/planning to attend graduate school. Among those Hofstra graduates in Computer Science majors and who reported salary, the median annual self-reported salary was $57,000. Among those Hofstra graduates in Engineering majors and who reported salary, the median annual self-reported salary was $60,000.

Engineers of all specialties are in demand in industry and in research. Nearly 100 percent of recent undergraduate degree recipients who responded to a survey (or other reliable source) reported that they were employed or had started or were planning to start graduate school within one year of graduation. Employment prospects are further enhanced by the new DeMatteis School Co-op Program available to third-year students seeking the experience of real-world engineering and computer science work for a six- to eight-month period prior to graduation. Currently more than 140 companies participate in the program, and the network is expanding rapidly. Summer internships are another available option.

Examples of employers that hired recent DeMatteis School graduates include:

Outcomes are based on the 36% of 2015-2016 Engineering and Applied Science undergraduate degree recipients who responded to a survey or for whom data was gathered from LinkedIn within one year of graduation, not the total number of graduates, and may not be representative of the total graduating population. The career outcomes rate includes those employed (full-time or part-time) and not employed but attending graduate school (full-time or part-time) next semester. Salary data is self-reported voluntarily by Engineering and Applied Science graduates and are based upon a 59% response rate. Salary figures vary from year-to-year based upon a number of factors, including market conditions as well as the number of graduates reporting salary information to us. The economy is constantly changing, and employment for past classes is not an accurate predictor of employment for future classes. In addition, a degree from Hofstra or any other school is not a guarantee of employment in any field.

All data must meet a test of data integrity. The average salary and outcomes data reported for Hofstra graduates is determined by the level at which data may be deemed reliable (University wide, school, division or department).
