Science and Engineering offers a four-year program of interdisciplinary studies for students interested in pursuing careers in mathematics, engineering, or the physical sciences. Students in this program undertake an accelerated program in mathematics, science, computer science, and electronics. In conjunction with specialized studies, students receive a comprehensive education in the humanities.
The program includes opportunities for staff and students to interact with representatives from industry and institutions of higher learning in order to acquire an awareness of research methods, current applications, and career opportunities. These field experiences are coordinated with personal counseling which is designed to assist students in postsecondary plans. In the past few years, S&E students interned at companies such as Commvault, Festo Didactic, AT&T, Nokia-Bell Labs, Ocean First Bank, and PEC Telecom Solutions.
While attending the Science & Engineering Magnet Program, students are well prepared for college exams. The average SAT score of Science & Engineering students was 2182 in 2016 and 2164 in 2017. Advanced Placement scores average at 4 and above (4.0 in Computer Science, 4.3 in Physics E&M, 4.4 in Chemistry, 4.6 in Physics-Mechanics, 4.6 in Calculus BC). S&E students are regularly admitted to prestigious colleges and universities such as Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Columbia, MIT, Cornell, Cooper Union, Brown, University of Pennsylvania, California Institute of Technology, University of California - Berkeley, and many others.
Annually students compete and are successful in many STEM competitions: first place at Lockheed Martin's Codequest (Novice Division), first place at Stuyvesant High School's Stuyhacks , first and third at SeaPerch , first through fourth place at Monmouth County's Chemistry Olympiad, multiple honors at the American Association of Physics Teachers Physics Bowl (first in NJ, seventh nationally, eighteenth internationally), fourth in the picoctf Computer Security Competition , one of the 24 regional winning projects in the 2014 Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision competition , to name a few.
After graduation, students have gone on to become professors at Princeton, Yale, Ecole Polytechnique, Federale de Lausanne, and The Cooper Union. Likewise, our alumni work at prestigious companies such as Google (16 alumni), Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, Goldman-Sachs, Microsoft, Lucent, Princeton Plasma Lab, and AT&T.
