New Jersey Tech
Founded in 1881 with the support of Newark's 19th-century industrialists and inventors especially Edward Weston, NJIT opened as Newark Technical School in 1884. Problem-solving and application oriented from inception, the school grew into a classic engineering college - Newark College of Engineering - and then, with the addition of a School of Architecture in 1975, into a technology-oriented university that is now home to five colleges and one school.
NJIT opened with 88 students most of whom attended part-time. Presently, the university enrolls 10,000 plus students, more than 2,200 of whom live on campus, including 600 in the newly completed Warren Street Village. NJIT's 48-acre campus was extensively re-landscaped in the past decade. Most of its 35 buildings are new or newly refurbished. Architecturally significant buildings include Eberhardt Hall, the Campus Center, and the Central King Building, the old Central High School of Newark in the Collegiate Gothic style, which is currently being renovated into a STEM center.
