NJIT Continues Rankings Climb
New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) ranks in the top quarter of U.S. universities and colleges in the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings for 2022.
For the second year in a row, NJIT has earned a spot in the top 25 percent of universities, jumping another 16 spots from the 2021 rankings and an impressive 200 places since 2017. Additionally, NJIT is the second highest ranked public university in New Jersey among schools offering degrees in several disciplines, including business, engineering, architecture, and history.
“Since the ranking’s inaugural year, NJIT has steadily climbed the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education U.S. rankings,” said Fadi P. Deek, NJIT provost and senior executive vice president. “Our upward trajectory and improved standing is a testament to focused and strategic improvements we are making in our academic programs and faculty, and the positive feedback provided by our students.”
The overall rankings are based on performance metrics in four categories: resources, engagement, outcomes and environment.
In environment, which assesses diversity among faculty and students, student inclusion and the ratio of international students, NJIT ranks No. 47 nationally — up 19 spots from 2021 — highlighted by scores of 94.9 and 92.1 out of 100 for student and staff diversity, respectively.
In addition, the university ranks No. 131 in outcomes, which includes measurements of graduate salary, graduation rate, and reputation — all areas that have seen improvements over last year. That ranking rose 14 slots from 2021.
Data for the Wall Street Journal/Times High Education College Rankings comes from the U.S. government (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and the Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid), Bureau of Economic Analysis, Elsevier bibliometric dataset, and student and academic surveys conducted by Times Higher Education.
