Welcome to the website of the College of Computing Sciences!
NJIT's newest college was established on July 1, 2001. The college symbolizes NJIT's desire to make computing a centerpiece of its educational activities in the 21st century. Its mission is to bring education in a broad range of computing disciplines to students on campus and at a distance, to carry out cutting-edge computing research, and to work closely with industry. The college has evolved from our early focus on providing practical educational experiences, grounded in the fundamentals, to undergraduate and graduate students into an academic unit that offers a wide range of academic programs from the bachelors to the doctorate with diverse research initiatives that explore the newest technologies and advancements.
Bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees are offered in computer science and information systems, and a bachelor and a masters degree is offered in information technology.
We are now formulating a new strategic plan for the college that examines our existing strengths as well as our ambitions for the future at a time when technological change remains the engine that shapes our society and its economy. Our field has never been more vibrant than it is today, with computing embedded in every aspect of our lives and the remarkable new discoveries facilitated by computing and biological sciences coming closer together.
Our website is designed to help you learn more about who we are and what we do. I encourage you to explore it and to contact us if you have any questions. As you look around, I hope that you get the sense that the College of Computing Sciences is a bit different from traditional departments of computer science and information systems. We emphasize the breadth of the computing disciplines and the central role that they will play in our lives in this new century.
I am a strong believer in keeping in touch with all who have an interest in our college and its academic and research programs. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to contact me.
