Why NJIT?

The New Jersey Institute of Technology has a rich history, with its beginnings in the industrial age. Established in 1881 as The Newark Technical School with 88 students, NJIT now enrolls over 11,000 students and employs a workforce of over 1,300 full-time-equivalent employees.

NJIT has been recognized nationally for providing graduates with a high rate of return on their investment, has earned national prominence by developing relevant academic programs taught by leading practitioners in their fields, and is ranked in the top 50 among colleges without a medical school for research expenditures, and in the top 10 among universities whose main research is in engineering. In spring 2014, NJIT announced its new economic-development venture, New Jersey Innovation Institute (NJII), which is comprised of Innovation Labs (iLabs) that follow industry-led agendas designed to spur product creation and enhancement, develop solutions for sector-wide and/or company-focused challenges, and serve as a catalyst for regional economic growth.

Our workforce is the driving force behind our successes. We are committed to recruiting, retaining and motivating qualified and diverse employees to support NJIT’s mission. Toward this end, we promote a culture of innovation and leadership, offer competitive salaries and excellent benefits, and reward competence, collaboration and creativity.

We invite you to build and advance your career with NJIT and help our students become leaders and innovators who shape industry and the nation.
