New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) has been recognised nationally for giving its graduates a high return on investment and for providing affordable education with great value. U.S. News & World Report placed it at #97 in its National Universities ranking, #41 in its Best Value Schools ranking and #43 in its Top Public Schools ranking. The school’s unique blend of liberal arts and technical education emphasises an interdisciplinary approach to the role of technology across disciplines.
It has six specialised schools that offer 50 bachelor’s, 59 master’s and 19 doctoral degree programs. Its faculty is comprised of almost 500 experts and professionals, around 90% of whom hold doctoral degrees, and all of whom are committed to providing the best possible learning experiences to its diverse student population. Amid a student population of more than 11,000, NJIT maintains a 16:1 student-to-faculty ratio to ensure that maximum attention is given to each student’s growth and development. Classroom learning is supplemented by industry internships, so students gain a strong fluency in their future careers.
NJIT is not just a hub for world-class education. It is also a dynamic community of diverse people who share common service-oriented goals despite having varied interests.

NJIT is located in Newark, New Jersey’s largest city as well as cultural and economic capital and is a 20-minute train ride away from New York City.
New Jersey Institute of Technology is an EduCo International partner university.
"Maggie Wang joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Villanova University after graduating from NJIT in 2006 and is now an associate professor. There she teaches primarily computer engineering courses — computer architecture, logic and design, embedded systems and field-programmable gate-array devices — to undergraduate, M.S. and Ph.D. students. Maggie came to NJIT from Beijing and received a full assistantship with her advisor, Dr. Sotirios Ziavras, who was working on a grant from the Department of Energy to explore FPGA-based high-performance parallel computing architectures for real-time power grid applications. Maggie says all her NJIT professors were very approachable and supportive and that several were involved in research, so she was able to learn about her field from many different aspects."
