Graduates make a great tuition-to-starting salary ratio. NJIT also has a good reputation within NJ.

It's a good school and you will meet lots of good people. However, if you are looking for the archetypal "college" experience, this is not the college for you.

A coach said he has never had an engineering student graduate that did not have a job lined up. The networking the school has with companies is outstanding and the internship opportunities are always there if the student is willing to go to advisors and ask about them. I am constantly receiving emails about internship opportunities for my major.
