Elena Moiseenko earned her Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from an old and very large professional engineering school, the Newark College of Engineering in Newark, New Jersey, now known as the New Jersey Institute of Technology . Newark College of Engineering has provided engineering instruction and degrees since 1919, and graduates of NCE are laboring in corporations worldwide, as CEOs, corporate presidents, inventors and innovators in aerospace, television, telecommunications, plastics, electronics and environmental engineering. Located in the heart of Newark, and only 30 minutes from New York City, Moiseenko likely commuted to her classes at NCE, as 80% of students enrolled there do.
The New Jersey Institute of Science & Technology attended by Elena Moiseenko is ranked 115th in U.S. News & World Report’s America’s Best Colleges Today in 2010. NJIT is the 7th most ethnically diverse university and is one of the best public national universities in America. The Graduate School of Engineering is 86th overall in the nation for quality, and #1 college value in the country based on cost versus starting salaries of recent graduates. The rating of #1 most underrated college in the country by Business Insider also compares the rate of graduation employment with high average starting salaries.
Only a third of the Engineering students at Newark College of Engineering are women. This statistic alone defines the determination of Elena Moiseenko when she enrolled as an Engineering student. Even more evidence of her ambitions in Engineering is her work as a waitress during her student years to support her schooling. It gladdens the heart to think that through her waitressing, she met the Human Resources director of ITT, which became her first job after matriculation.
