NJIT also ranked No. 44 in the undergraduate game design ranking, according to The Princeton Review survey based on criteria that cover the quality of faculty, facilities and technology.
“I’m pleased that Princeton Review has, for the fourth consecutive year, included us in their list of top undergraduate schools to study game design,” said Glenn Goldman, director of NJIT’s School of Art + Design. “It is a recognition of the strong collaborative program we have between digital design in the School of Art + Design and information technology in the Department of Informatics.”
Princeton Review also lauded NJIT earlier in 2019 as one of the top colleges with “exceptional ROI for your tuition investment.” In order to make this list, institutions must demonstrate a strong academic program and affordability, and offer strong opportunities for career prospects after graduation.
"NJIT excels at preparing its students for career success in what is undeniably a technology-driven economy. Return on educational investment is very important to our students, and it has been proven empirically that an NJIT degree provides a pathway to career success. Our students have an average of approximately three job offers in hand during their senior year and attain starting salaries almost 20 percent above their peers across the country, and NJIT is ranked No. 1 nationally by Forbes for the upward mobility of students from the lowest income brackets,” said NJIT President Joel S. Bloom.
