Architecture Students at NJIT Again Win Computer-Aided Design Competition

Manuel Millan (Carteret), and Wai Lung Choi (Newark), students at NJIT’s New Jersey School of Architecture, have added to the honors historically won by entries from NJIT in the 2003 Caddies competition. Millan won a second-place award in the Undergraduate Student category for Venetian Canal and tied for third place with Choi for Glass Studio. Choi’s winning entry is Prague Town Square. According to Cadalyst Magazine, the winners, Millan and Choi among them, stood out from an “overwhelming” number of entries.

The NJIT tradition of innovation and excellence in computer aided design (CAD) began in 1985, when the country’s first architectural electronic design studio was established on campus. The university’s graduates soon pioneered the use of this technology in the workplace and NJIT students began to reap honors in national and international CAD competitions ? including the design competition sponsored in part by Cadalyst Magazine. This annual international competition celebrates excellence in digital imaging and awards students and professionals for still images and animation.

NJIT, New Jersey's science and technology university, enrolls approximately 10,000 students pursuing bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in 120 programs. The university consists of six colleges: Newark College of Engineering, College of Architecture and Design, College of Science and Liberal Arts, School of Management, College of Computing Sciences and Albert Dorman Honors College. U.S. News & World Report's 2012 Annual Guide to America's Best Colleges ranked NJIT in the top tier of national research universities. NJIT is internationally recognized for being at the edge in knowledge in architecture, applied mathematics, wireless communications and networking, solar physics, advanced engineered particulate materials, nanotechnology, neural engineering and e-learning. Many courses and certificate programs, as well as graduate degrees, are available online through the Division of Continuing Professional Education.
