New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) signed an agreement to begin offering classes this fall at Camden County College (CCC).
NJIT will offer master's-degree courses in engineering management and computer information sciences at the county college’s Rohrer Center, in Cherry Hill. NJIT aims to also offer bachelor’s degree programs and other courses from CCC’s campuses in Blackwood and Camden. Those programs and courses could be offered as early as the spring semester of 2005, and will allow students to earn NJIT degrees without attending the NJIT campus in Newark.
A signing ceremony to formalize the collaboration between NJIT and CCC was held Aug. 4, 2004, at the county college’s Rohrer Center. Participating in the signing were Robert Altenkirch, NJIT president; Phyllis Della Vecchia, CCC president; Joel Bloom, NJIT provost; Raymond Yannuzzi, CCC provost; and Edward McDonnell, CCC executive dean.
NJIT and CCC entered this partnership to better serve students, taxpayers and employers throughout the state. By offering NJIT courses and programs in Camden County, the partnership also aims to maximize the use of state and county-supported science/technology facilities, improve the technological expertise of New Jersey’s workforce and help develop regional business and industry.
