NJIT on Princeton Review’s Best List Again

New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) offers students an outstanding undergraduate education, according to the Princeton Review’s newest survey.  Featured in the Review’s new best college book, NJIT numbers among the Review’s elite ranking of 366 colleges in the US. The list represents only 15 percent of the four-year colleges in the US.    

"We choose schools for their outstanding academics,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's Vice President.   To evaluate colleges, the Review used institutional data, feedback from current students and visits by Review representatives.   The opinions of independent college counselors, students, and parents were also considered. 

NJIT President Robert A. Altenkirch said he is pleased to find NJIT featured once again on the prestigious list. “While I can’t agree with everything the Review writes about NJIT, a number of the observations speak to important aspects of NJIT’s educational mission and offerings,” Altenkirch said.    

The Review describes NJIT as a leader in the field of technology in the tri-state area:  “Mathematics, science, technology and architecture offerings all shine,” according to the text.  As in the past, NJIT’s public-school pricing was highlighted:  “Students can graduate without the bank owning our first-borns, which is a definite plus,” an NJIT student told the Review.

Talented high school graduates from across the nation come to NJIT to prepare for leadership roles in architecture, business, engineering, medical, legal, science and technological fields.  Students experience a public research university conducting more than $75 million in research that maintains a small-college atmosphere at a modest cost.

NJIT’s attractive 45-acre campus is just minutes from New York City and less than an hour from the Jersey shore. Students find an outstanding faculty and a safe, diverse, caring learning and residential community. All residence hall rooms have sprinklers.  NJIT’s academic environment challenges and prepares students for rewarding careers and full-time advanced study after graduation.

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.
