New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is the public polytechnic university of the state of New Jersey. It is well recognized as a preeminent institution for STEM education and research. It first opened in 1885 with the support of Edward Weston, a rival of Thomas Edison, and taught students applied engineering skills. After World War II, the institute broadened its offerings to include architecture. It also established four new colleges from 1982 to 2001: the College of Science and Liberal Arts; the School of Management; the Albert Dorman Honors College; and the College of Computing Sciences. Across the six specialty schools, NJIT offers 125 programs at the college and graduate levels.
The quality of education that New Jersey Institute of Technology offers is acknowledged by various institutions. Specifically, it is fully accredited by various bodies, including the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, the National Architectural Accrediting Board, and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
NJIT is also recognized as a higher education institution with very high research activity. Not only are its faculty and affiliated researchers involved in such undertakings but its students are as well. The Institute has a 3-D Printing Laboratory; Controls, Automation, and Robotics Lab; and a Robotics Training Laboratory. Students, undergraduate and graduate alike can also pursue research topics along the lines of robotics, optical imaging, 3D bioprinting, chemistry, and financial analysis since there are facilities available for those as well. These are but only a few of the laboratories and centers that New Jersey Institute of Technology has—it has over 70 of these.
Meanwhile, faculty and affiliated researchers could earn credits working on projects related to life sciences and engineering; data science and information technology; and sustainable systems. There are also transdisciplinary research undertakings. They can receive funding internally but can get grants from outside sources as well. The rigorous and intensive research activities in the institute have allowed it to apply for more than 200 U.S. patents.
Outside of its home state, New Jersey Institute of Technology is involved with the Owens Valley Radio Observatory and the Big Bear Solar Observatory in California. Abroad, it has automated stations in Antarctica and South America. These are all for solar-terrestrial research.
NJIT is also committed to provide continuing education and professional development to professionals who want to expand their knowledge and skill sets to remain competitive in their industries.
