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. As of fall 2013, the university enrolls over 10,000 students, more than 2,200 of whom live on campus, including 600 in Warren Street Village. NJIT's 48-acre campus was extensively re-landscaped in the past decade. 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 being renovated into a STEM center.
