Consortium with New Jersey Institute of Technology

Adjacent to the Newark campus of Rutgers is New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), which has a student enrollment of approximately 8,800. Rutgers-Newark and NJIT enjoy an exceptionally close and productive consortial relationship within the thriving University Heights section of Newark. Each year the two universities cosponsor a common season of theatrical productions, a multicultural street fair (World Week), a joint program of honors colloquia, and a variety of other cultural and social activities. Rutgers-Newark students have library privileges at the Robert W. Van Houten Library of NJIT. They also may enrich their educational experiences by enrolling in NJIT courses in areas not offered at Rutgers-Newark. NJIT courses are regularly listed in the Rutgers-Newark scheduling bulletin in order to facilitate the cross-registration process. Joint or cooperative degree programs now exist in several graduate and undergraduate fields, including the bachelor`s programsin applied physics, biology, computer science, environmental science, geoscience engineering, history, information systems, and science, technology, and society (STS). As a result of this consortial relationship, the opportunities available to students at both schools are greatly enhanced.

In the disciplines of art and design, computer science, engineering, environmental sciences, history, philosophy, physics, and theater, the NJIT courses listed in this chapter are available to Rutgers-Newark students who have the appropriate prerequisite preparation. Science, technology, and society, a collaborative program between Rutgers- Newark and NJIT, provides students in the Newark College of Arts and Sciences full access to the wide array of NJIT courses listed. Additionally, with appropriate departmental permission, undergraduate students also may take advantage of numerous other NJIT course offerings, which are listed in Rutgers` fall or spring term Schedule of Classes.
