About NJIT

Serious research-based academics in Technology and the Engineering, Biological and Computer Sciences on a remodeled, state-of-the-art campus is what you will find at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark, New Jersey.

Applied Physics, Biocomplexity, Biomedical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mathematical Engineering and Medical Informatics Technology are some of the more than 70 undergraduate degrees offered at NJIT. There are also more than 15 graduate programs.

Not only do nearly 100% of faculty hold doctorates, but they also work on pioneering research with students and with local businesses and organizations as well. Research areas include such fields as Biological Sciences, Biomedical Studies, Nanotechnologies and Wireless Communications.

Opportunities for work abound for NJIT grads in great part because of the quality of student training and the reputation of the school. Also important are the internships, which the school arranges for students while they’re still studying.

Classrooms and research centers aren’t the only place on the NJIT campus that employ the most current technologies. The renovated campus recreation areas, computer labs, and restaurants add to the contemporary look and feel of the NJIT experience.

Since Newark is the largest city in New Jersey there are also many employment opportunities available in the area. With its restaurants and cultural activities, Newark also provides much in the way of recreation and culture. New York City is also only 20 minutes away, so there is even more to be found in the off-campus experience.

Admission to NJIT is competitive and undergraduates who are accepted usually have high grades and test scores. Many eligible undergraduates receive some form of financial aid.
