New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is one of the nation’s top polytechnic public research universities focusing on the STEM-related, business and design fields.
Why NJIT Online?
NJIT’s multidisciplinary curriculum and computing-intensive approach to education provide technological proficiency, business acumen and leadership skills. With an enrollment of more than 11,300 graduate and undergraduate students, NJIT provides a small-campus intimacy with the resources of a major public research university.
NJIT ranks 8th in the nation for alumni earning potential. The top 10 highest-salaried occupations include engineering, business and computing specialties, physics, and physician’s assistant, all available at NJIT.
What is Online Learning?
NJIT Online programs are fully accredited high-quality graduate degrees and certificates that are offered by one of the nation’s top public Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) universities.
NJIT Online graduate courses follow a similar format to those that are held in person: they are led by a faculty member who is an expert in the field, utilize textbooks, and often require homework, class participation, and exams. NJIT Online courses take place in the Canvas online learning platform, and in Moodle through Summer 2020. Registered online students log on to Canvas/Moodle using an NJIT-issued ID and password to access lessons, participate in discussion forums, upload assignments, take tests and quizzes, and more.
While deadlines tend to be scheduled weekly, some courses may require participation in live online discussions or events, and group work may require meetings with classmates outside of the course.
NJIT Online graduate courses are 3 credits and are offered on a regular basis during the typical academic semester calendar - over 15 weeks in the fall (beginning in early September), spring (beginning in late January), and the summer (beginning late May). The successful student should expect to spend a couple of hours a day studying and participating in coursework.
