  • Energy and Nanotechnology

This is made effective through the department’s two research centers.  The Department offers BS, MS, and Ph.D. programs. 

The MS in Chemical Engineering requires a minimum of thirty credit hours wherein students must receive a GPA of up to 3.0 in core courses and an overall CGPA of 3.0.

It is divided into three choices:

  • Coursework
  • Research-based support
  • Master’s thesis

The core courses include :

  • Thermodynamics
  • Kinetics of Reactions and Reactor Design
  • Mathematical Methods in Chemical Engineering with a varying number of open electives in the areas of Engineering, Science, or Mathematics

any area of research at the student’s discretion depending upon the three options. Those pursuing Research-based support and Master’s thesis must consult with three faculty members and receive their signatures with regards to their thesis topic and preference of advisor on the form given by the department. MS in Materials Science and Engineering is a thirty credit hours course along with electives with the thesis being optional.

MS in Pharmaceutical Engineering is a thirty-hour course which requires the student to retain a CGPA of 3.0 throughout the duration of their course. It is mandatory for full-time students to complete a Master’s thesis, while part-time students are encouraged to pursue it. The course consists of five common core courses as well as fifteen credits of open electives.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Environmental systems: processes and treatment
  • Polymers and biomaterials
  • Reactive and energetic materials and combustion
  • Particles technology and engineered particulates
  • Micro and nano-fluidics
  • Catalysts and catalysis
  • Membrane science, engineering, and technology

Civil and Environmental 

The John A. Reif, Jr. Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at NJIT boasts of an all-round development program by offering BS, MS, and Ph.D. programs in the multiple disciplines of civil engineering and environmental engineering. The mission of the department is to provide an in-depth study of the forms and structures of technology and sustainability.

MS in Civil Engineering is a thirty credit hours course that can be qualified through two ways, i.e., campus or online for those who are interested in academics while being employed. MS in Environmental Engineering aims at preparing students to work closely with the faculty to seek new ways to research on and resolve environmental challenges through science.

The core courses include :

  • Physical Processes in Environmental Systems
  • Environmental Microbiology
  • Water Chemistry

The students are required to complete a total of six electives in two sections of Concentration in Water Quality, Treatment and Infrastructure and Concentration in Integrated Site Remediation, three from each.

The course also offers a bridge program and a wide option of career prospects. MS in Critical Infrastructure Systems understands the essential need for producing reliable infrastructure that is resilient to calamity and various hazards thereby giving rise to graduates who excel not only in innovation but also prevention and detection.

Some of the core courses are :

  • Critical Infrastructure I: Performance and Risk Analysis of Infrastructure Systems
  • Critical Infrastructure II: Security Management of Critical Infrastructure, Management Science and Elements of Infrastructure Planning

The central goal of MS in Transportation is to instruct students to be proficient in the individual elements associated with transportation such as system management, design, operation and construction. 

Areas of Expertise:

  • High-performance construction materials
  • Environmental nanotechnology
  • Remote sensing/geographical information systems
  • Resilient infrastructure systems
  • Water resources
  • Geoenvironmental issues
  • Sustainable environmental systems
  • Structural testing and rehabilitation
  • Transportation
  • Water quality and treatment
  • Hydraulics
  • Environmental engineering
  • Intelligent transportation systems

Electrical and Computer

Helen and John C. Hartmann Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NJIT encourages the students to step outside theoretical framework and engage with the challenges that exist and are emerging in the 21st century. The department takes pride in its metropolitan location which provides easy access to students in terms of internships and special projects in leading laboratories and research centres in and around the New York City-New Jersey area.

It offers BS, MS and PhD programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering along with a handful of fellowships and projects for undergraduate and PhD students. MS in Computer Engineering is a thirty credit hours course out of which twenty-one or more should be from courses in ECE. The requirements for the completion of the degree includes two computer engineering core courses, a minimum of two courses from one of the five areas of specialization and some extra courses.

The student must attain a CGPA of 3.0 excluding the thesis or project. It is optional to undertake Master's Project or Master's Thesis. There are also bridge courses for students applying from undergraduate disciplines other than computer engineering.

MS in Electrical Engineering has four-track courses, namely:

  • Communication
  • Signal Processing and Microwave Track
  • Computer Networking Track
  • Computer Architecture and Systems Track
  • Electronic and Photonic Devices Track

Intelligent Systems Track out of which students are required to choose two core courses and two-track courses. It also gives the option of acquiring the program degree online, however, the curriculum differs from that of the campus-based. MS in Internet Engineering is a thirty credit hours course with nine hours for core courses and twenty-one for electives.MS in Telecommunications requires a minimum of thirty credit hours of coursework and a GPA of 3.0 in four core courses for graduation.

M.S. in Power and Energy Systems has two core courses, two concentration area requirements and three to five electives that should be chosen out of the pool by the students. A thesis or a project is optional alongside the coursework, and certain bridge courses may also be necessary for students applying from different academic backgrounds.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Computer networking
  • Communications and signal processing
  • Electronic and photonic devices and systems
  • Intelligent systems
  • Computer architecture and systems

Mechanical and Industrial

The Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at NJIT provides students with the opportunity to narrow down their focus on what interests them in electrical and electronic, chemical, civil, and mechanical arenas. The department offers BS, MS, and Ph.D. degrees.

MS in Mechanical Engineering is a thirty credit hours course wherein students must contribute an extensive twelve to fifteen credit hours to areas of concentration and Mechanical Engineering Colloquium for two semesters. Students are also encouraged to undertake a thesis or a project depending upon their interests.

M.S. in Industrial Engineering is a thirty credit hours course out of which twelve credit hours are for core courses in:
