The New Jersey Institute of Technology is the state’s public polytechnic university and is located in Newark, NJ, the largest city in the state. Founded in 1881 through state Legislature, NJIT has grown to encompass 6 colleges that offer more than 50 undergraduate and 60 graduate degrees, as well as to host over 60 specialized laboratory and research centers. The institute maintains a Makerspace where students, faculty, and industry peers can collaborate, experiment, and build. For students looking beyond the college walls, NJIT offers study abroad and internship programs, as well as community service and student leadership opportunities. Outside of the classroom, students can take part in Greek life, travel 20 minutes by train to NYC, or hang out in NJIT’s Campus Center, which features a gaming room.
The courses and subjects are tough but the key to understanding the lessons is to really pay attention and of course, take notes. The environment and social life is not that bad compare to what others say. Overall, I do recommend it for those who aspire to work in the technology and design world!
