In terms of an academic or workplace environment, you shouldn't have any issues being Muslim.
Social challenges in college are the same regardless of which field you are in such as finding a social circle that maybe is not that much into partying etc.
But I've experienced zero discrimination as a Muslim during my time in college and in the workplace.
