New Jersey Institute of Technology soared 34 spots higher in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 Best Colleges rankings which was released this month. It jumped from 140th to 106th place out of over 1,800 top colleges and universities in the United States.
“This is a very significant development especially for our international students enrolled in NJIT and education agents all over the world who have continuously highlighted the institution’s programs especially in technology and engineering. Their efforts have been validated by the vote of confidence for NJIT as among the top colleges in the US,” says Jim Panos, EduCo’s senior vice president for North American operations.
In addition to the overall ranking, NJIT was also listed at #87 for Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs and #94 for Best Value Schools. It is also cited as among the country’s most ethnically and economically diverse. As a public institution, NJIT climbed 18 rungs higher to rank #46 in the list of the Top Public Schools in the United States.
According to Robert Morse, chief data strategist at U.S. News, their ranking puts a premium on results. “A university is not successful if it does not graduate its students, which is why the Best Colleges rankings place the greatest value on outcomes, including graduation and retention rates,” he says.
“By including social mobility indicators, U.S News is further recognising colleges that serve all of their students, regardless of economic status,” Mr Morse points out.
