One of the nation’s leading public polytechnic universities, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) prepares students to be leaders in the technology-dependent economy of the 21st century. The university’s multidisciplinary curriculum and computing-intensive approach to education provide the technological proficiency, business know-how and leadership skills that future CEOs and entrepreneurs will need to succeed. With an enrollment of 11,000 undergraduate and graduate students, NJIT offers small-campus intimacy with the resources of a major public research university.
The NJIT experience offers a unique blend of liberal and technical education. We offer many opportunities to engage areas beyond typical engineering, architecture, and science degrees. Opportunities abound for interdisciplinary learning at the intersections with the humanities, social sciences and economics, as we help our students to consider where technology is going to take us as a society locally, regionally, and globally.
Our six schools and colleges enroll more than 9,500 students in 46 bachelor's, 56 master's and 19 doctoral degree programs. The university is constantly developing new educational opportunities designed to meet the changing needs of the marketplace. These initiatives may take the form of new degree programs, online learning programs, programs for pre-college youngsters, elementary and high school teachers, or professionals in the workforce.
