Overview

A Highly Ranked University for Research, Technology, and Value

New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) offers its students a small-college feel with the resources of a major research university in the nation's largest metropolitan area. Approximately 7,200 undergraduates are enrolled at NJIT, taking courses at the recently renovated Newark campus and studying abroad.

With a student-faculty member ratio of 16 to 1, a focus on saving students time and money, and an active research program, NJIT has earned high rankings in a number of categories. The Princeton Review lists NJIT as a Best Northeastern College, and U.S. News and World Report ranks it in the Top 150 National Universities. Business Insider ranked New Jersey Institute of Technology number 3 among the nation's most underrated schools for its combination of academic quality and mid-career earning potential among graduates. PayScale.com ranks NJIT in the top 5% out of more than 1,000 U.S. universities for graduate earning potential.

Paid Work and Academic Experience via the Cooperative Education Program

NJIT's optional Cooperative Education (Co-op) Program gives students paid employment opportunities that are aligned with each student's major. Students may apply to take part in Co-op as early as the freshman year, depending on grade-point average and department-specific rules. NJIT's Career Development Services department and faculty member monitors ensure that Co-op work is academically relevant.

A Comprehensive Array of Degree Programs and Honors Options

New Jersey Institute of Technology is made up of 6 colleges that offer a total of 48 bachelor's degree programs and 17 certificate programs, along with master's degree and doctoral degree programs. NJIT's colleges offer many undergraduate options for streamlining the pursuit of a master's or professional degree.

Qualified students in any of the colleges may apply to NJIT's Albert Dorman Honors College to take advantage of accelerated Bachelor of Science/Master of Science (B.S./M.S.) and pre-professional programs. Honors College students also have the option to pursue dual majors in Science, Technology, and Society through the STS Program.

Traditional and Special Professional-Track Engineering Programs

Newark College of Engineering (NCE) heads a dozen research centers and is an affiliate of several more, including the Public Health Research Institute at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. NCE's 9 bachelor's degree programs include biomedical engineering as well as a specialized Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science degree program that offers accelerated 7-year B.S./M.D. and B.S.-Dentistry courses of study.

Bachelor's Degree and Dual-Degree Architecture and Design Programs

NJIT's College of Architecture and Design (COAD) offerings range from the Bachelor of Architecture to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Digital Design. In addition to bachelor's degree programs in interior design and industrial design, COAD offers dual-degree programs that save students time in achieving a bachelor's degree in architecture along with a master's degree. Students in COAD may also each pursue a master's in architecture and another master's degree through the dual-degree program.

Many Options for Specialization and Combined Studies in Computing Sciences

The College of Computing Sciences (CCS) offers degree programs in computer science, information systems, and information technology. The college is also home to research groups working on topics including data security, collaborative systems and hypermedia, and biometrics.

CCS computer science bachelor's program options include B.S. and B.A. degrees in Computer Science, a combined study of computer science and biology that leads to a B.S. in Bioinformatics, and a computer science and business combined program that leads to a B.S. in Computing and Business.

Information Systems students may choose among 4 Bachelor of Science degree programs focused on the web, human-computer interaction, business, and traditional information systems. A dual-major program is also available that leads to a B.S. in Business and Information Systems degree program and a B.S. in Science, Technology, and Society degree program.

The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology program offers several specialization possibilities, such as game development, web applications, management information systems, and a B.S./J.D. Criminal Justice and Law specialization offered in conjunction with Seton Hall University Law School.

Accelerated Pre-Professional Programs and Teacher Certification

The College of Science and Liberal Arts (CSLA) at NJIT offers more than a dozen bachelor's degree programs in applied physics, history, theater arts and technology, and other traditional and interdisciplinary fields of study. Together with Rutgers' Newark campus, the CSLA offers its students 30-credit elementary and secondary teacher certification programs. These programs are concurrent with the bachelor's degree program and require no extra fees.

CSLA students who plan to pursue professional degrees can take advantage of NJIT's time- and tuition-saving pre-professional accelerated programs. These programs give students the ability to earn bachelor's degrees and degrees in medicine, optometry, dentistry or physical therapy in 7 years, or bachelor's degrees and law degrees in 6 years.

Business Major and Minor Options

NJIT's School of Management offers a Bachelor of Science in Business (B.S.B.) degree program with concentrations available in innovation and entrepreneurship, international business, and other business fields such as accounting. NJIT undergraduates may also opt to minor in economics, business, or innovation and entrepreneurship.

The School of Management is home to the academic journal of the Northeast Business and Economics Association. The peer-reviewed Journal of Business and Economic Studies is published twice yearly.

A College Town with Big City Recreational and Cultural Options

The New Jersey Institute of Technology campus is located next to Rutgers University's Newark campus. NJIT is a 20-minute train ride from Manhattan and less than an hour's drive from the Jersey shore. Nearby attractions include the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the Prudential Center, home of the New Jersey Devils National Hockey League team.
