What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
Make sure to keep up with your courses. Also, memorize your professors' office hours and their locations so you may ask them any questions when the time comes for an exam or a quiz of some sort.
Ayrton from Newark, NJ
Be up to date with everything around the campus! It's fun once you actually participate!
Vincess Jasmine from North Plainfield, NJ
For any student, particularly students who want to attend NJIT try your best and make sure you go slightly ahead with the content on your syllabus for a better understanding. It is easy to get left behind at an Engineering school, especially of NJIT's work capacity.
Semaj from Irvington, NJ
Just because it's an easy school to get into doesn't mean it's not hard. You have to put a lot of time in to your studies in all your classes.
William from Irvington, NJ
Usually people that say it sucks here is because they haven't made full use of the resources available to them. As an adult, realize that every little decision you make will have a huge consequence, whether good or bad, even months down the road.

Ladies, don't be intimated by the male to female ratio. I got over the shock of being either the only or one of 3-5 girls in my classes by the 1st few days. The fellas here won't bite,!! Society of Women Engineer and the Murray Center for Women are there to help.

Stereotypes will rarely be found here. EOP - a prime example - is so diverse. Get rid of your bias, and you'll find a whole new world of resources to help you reach your goal.
DJP from Englewood, NJ
APPLY! Trust me, you won't regret it. And even if you decide NJIT isn't for you, don't lose out on the opportunity!
Kevin from Long Branch, NJ
Get ready to study and work your butt off in class. It's a tech school, not a party school. But you can still have fun here if you open yourself to possibilities.
Adel from Newark, NJ
Plan ahead, meet with the Learning Disabilities Specialist before classes begin to submit documentation and arrange academic accommodations.
Juanita from Englewood, NJ
This college is designed for architecture, business and engineering students. The limits are endless in these degrees, but there is not a very wide selection in majors that other school may have.
Brandon from Stanhope, NJ
