Students Choose An Education In Computing Sciences
We can arrange interviews with enrolled students from your circulation area. The students can discuss why they are pursuing an education in computing sciences, despite an economic downturn in the technology market.

The Uniqueness of the College of Computing Sciences
The workplace in New Jersey and the nation needs well-trained people in information systems and computer science. Yet, there are only a handful of other universities following the lead of NJIT. Administrators and others want to talk about why NJIT has established this new college.
