NJIT Radio Campaign Awarded Silver Medal in Educational Advertising Awards Competition

The NJIT "Edge in Knowledge" radio campaign developed by NJIT and CN Communications has been awarded a silver medal from the 26th Annual Educational Advertising Awards sponsored by the Higher Ed Marketing Report. 

A much-deserved recognition for NJIT's steady marketing efforts over the past few years, the award represents a solid third-party validation from peers in the higher education marketing business.  The Higher Ed Marketing Report is the largest educational advertising awards competition in the US.  More than 2,500 entries were submitted this year from more than 1,000 colleges, universities and secondary schools from all 50 states and several foreign countries.

In related news, NJIT presented earlier this month to industry colleagues at the Council for Advancement and Support of Education District II Conference in Baltimore a brief history of the NJIT branding campaign. NJIT visibility has increased more than 30 percent over the past decade.

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.
