NJIT Advances in US News Rankings http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-346.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-346.phpWed, 05 Oct 2005 00:00:00 -0400 NJIT is a university moving steadily toward the upper tier of national universities. Princeton Review's Best 361 Colleges praises NJIT for great computer facilities, a safe campus, a diverse student body, and small classes. It also calls NJIT "a leader in the field of technology in the tri-state area" and "an intense academic university that allows students to be prepared for the working world." It specifically notes improved university facilities and athletics.The latest US News and World Report rankings show NJIT has a great deal with which to be proud. New Jersey Institute of Technology is now ranked 125th among national research universities. Only once has NJIT achieved a higher relative rank score and never has the university had a better graduation rate or a more competitive incoming class.According to US News and World Report, NJIT made very significant progress, improving our overall ranking among national research universities from 130 last year to 125 for the current year.    * The graduation rate improved to 55% from 46%;    * The top 25% SAT scores among new students rose to 1260 from 1230;    * Our level of selectivity increased; only 58% of applicants were admitted compared to 65% last year;    * Relative financial resources now place the university among the top 87 schools where we were previously 109th;    * The alumni giving percentage ranks among the top 60 schools in the country    * Relative faculty resources now place NJIT 43rd in the nation.    * The peer assessment ranking recovered most of the loss associated with “merger” rumors and negative publicity from two years ago.The university is continuing to work toward the NJIT Strategic Plan to achieve national prominence. Although the US News Top Tier now includes only 124 schools, rather than the 129 it did last year, it remains the top ranked tier three school. As NJIT continues to move forward, the university intends to firmly establish itself among the nation's top research universities, by any measure.

US News: NJIT's a "Top School" http://www.njit.edu/news/2003/2003-084.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2003/2003-084.phpThu, 28 Aug 2003 00:00:00 -0400 he U.S. News & World Report's annual "Best Colleges" issue is posted on its Website and due on newsstands September 1. NJIT is again among the top-rated universities in the nation--ranking number 117 of 248 national universities offering a full range of undergraduate majors, plus master's and doctoral degrees. There are nearly 600 such U.S. universities, but not all are selected to be ranked. USNewsWebsite      Among the 89 public universities in the rated group, NJIT ranked 59th.      NJIT's president, Robert A. Altenkirch says he is pleased with the showing.     "While the U.S. News & World Report ranking of universities may not derive from the most scientifically based survey methods, it is a popular one and conveys some useful information to the prospective student and the public. We are pleased to see NJIT placed solidly within the top group of national universities, and will continue to work on aspects of the rankings to improve our placement even further," Altenkirch says.      Though this year marks NJIT's best showing to date, the magazine urges institutions not to compare this year's results with past years' numbers because it changes its study methodology every year.      NJIT's ranking ties it with Howard University, the State University of New York at Stony Brook, the University of Oklahoma, and the University of San Francisco.      The magazine uses expert opinion about program quality and statistical data that it says are reliable indicators of the quality of a school's research, faculty, and students. Among the criteria used to score schools are the rate of students who graduate, class size, the student/faculty ratio, and the class ranks and test scores of entering freshmen.        NJIT scored high in faculty and financial resources, but did not do as well in its graduation and retention rate, its selectivity, or in peer assessment.      Rutgers University was also among the top-ranked universities, tying with Ohio State, University of Miami (Florida), and the University of Minnesota for 60th.      The magazine rates schools by using both expert opinion and statistical indicators with a goal of measuring the quality of a school's faculty, research, and students.      The current study is based on interviews and data collected in 2002.      In a separate study, NJIT's engineering school's undergraduate program was rated 84th out of 115 ranked engineering schools.
