One of the best FE program in the New York Metropolation area
Class of
2023
The admission process was accommodating and I received a scholarship of 17000$ with my offer. The courses are on the cutting edge, flexible, and are designed to be highly practical. I selected around 16 courses in machine/deep learning, algo trading, and risk management areas, including some at the Ph.D. level. Professors are exceptional with excellent industry relations. Stevens is renowned for its location, just 10 minutes from Manhattan. The COPA team provided thorough support for my career with my program director and professors offering recommendations and conducting mock interviews for me.

Applying for a PhD within the Stevens FE program is also a great option, as it includes a dedicated two-semester PhD thesis FE900 project. PhD professors will work with you one-on-one to revise your thesis and assist you in publishing papers.

I worked in different hedge funds and Securities firms before Stevens. During the program, I interned at Jefferies and worked on different Capstone Projects from BOA. This rigorous FE program helped me find my full-time quantitative position in Transamerica. You will get a big bang for the buck in the Stevens FE program if you are pursuing a career path in quantitative finance.

Great professors and industry resources
Class of
2014
The FE program curriculum is set up very professionally, with sub-branches in different domains such as risk management and algorithm reading etc. This structure allows each student to choose their area of interest and delve deeply into learning relevant skills. The courses are designed practically, ensuring that the skills acquired are applicable in industry and not outdated.

The FE program boasts a powerful lab (Hanlon Lab) where students can experiment within a virtual industry environment, with only a few minutes lag from the real market. The lab staff, mostly PhD students, are always helpful in providing instruction when questions arise.

The professors in the FE program set a high standard. Many of them have Wall Street experience and adeptly transfer their knowledge to students. As a student and adult learner, one must be self-motivated and collaborate with professors to maximize the learning experience. Additionally, as a source of connecting to real industry, the program invites external experts or industry leaders to give webinars or tech talks to students.

During graduation and job hunting seasons, numerous large companies visit the campus for on-site hiring, including Morgan Stanley, EY, JP Morgan, and Two Sigma etc. It is highly recommended to be well-prepared to seize these opportunities.

Overall, I highly recommend the Financial Engineering program at Stevens Institute of Technology. I am always grateful for the experience I had at Stevens from 2014 to 2015, which has contributed significantly to my present-day success.

Great programme for those looking to break into the Quant world.
Class of
2023
The MSc Computational Finance at UCL provides a unique and necessary blend of mathematics, programming and finance knowledge for those looking to break into the quantitative finance industry, or for those who wish to continue with academia. Furthermore, the programme offers courses on financial engineering, market risk, numerical methods, machine learning, which are crucial to securing a quant role within a bank, hedge fund or trading firms. Additionally, the lectures are distinguished experts in their fields, being both enthusiastic and understanding, thus creating a very friendly environment for all to learn.

This MSc provides a dissertation final project, which can be done in collaboration with industry partner to give real-world experience in applying what you have learned throughout this course. Being based in the heart of London also provides a unique opportunity for networking with people in industry or potential employers.

Like any university programme, challenges are bound to emerge. In particular, the quality of some of the lecture rooms were not amazing, especially considering how much you are paying for the course (which is another point on its own). Moreover, the career service is somewhat lacklustre in certain aspects, and this in conjunction with the poor administration is really a let-down.

To conclude, my experience during this course was definitely a positive one, not just in regard to the skills it has equipped me with, but also to the interesting people I met along the way. If you’re looking to be a quant, you won’t regret choosing this course.
