New Jersey Institute of Technology is a top 10 Best College for Engineering Majors in the U.S., according to Money.
The universities in the top 10, which also include MIT, Princeton University and Georgia Institute of Technology, emerged from Money’s 2022 list of Best Colleges, which ranked NJIT No. 14 nationally. “We then ranked colleges based on the median salaries of recent alumni with engineering degrees, as well as the number and share of recent graduates earning bachelor’s degrees in engineering,” Money explained.
NJIT’s Newark College of Engineering is the largest and oldest academic school at the university, offering rigorous academics and hands-on experiences through research, design projects, internships and cooperative education opportunities.
Those experiences are heightened by a 21,000-square-foot Makerspace, which features state-of-the-art machinery and equipment for fabrication and prototyping. NCE has also recently added labs for microfabrication, motion capture and industrial and manufacturing engineering.
In its description of NJIT, Money noted that NCE offers the more than a dozen undergraduate degree programs and “produces an estimated one in four of the professional engineers in New Jersey,” adding that among its best engineering schools, “NJIT is a standout for economic mobility, propelling the many low- and moderate-income students it enrolls into well-paying jobs.”
To NCE Dean Moshe Kam, the latest accolade represents a return on NJIT’s investment in engineering education. U.S. News and World Report also ranks NJIT highly in engineering, specifically NCE’s graduate degree programs.
“Our top 10 national ranking from Money reflects significant intentional investment in hiring first-rate faculty, building and maintaining world-class research facilities and attracting the most promising and brilliant students,” Kam said. “We are committed to further expanding our presence in key research areas that support public health, civic infrastructure, protection of the environment and sustainable development.”
