Welcome to the Office of Graduate Studies at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). We provide assistance to graduate students in academic matters, approve M.S. thesis and Ph.D. dissertation committees and formats, and offer information about the availability of university-level assistantships, fellowships, and scholarships. The Graduate Faculty at NJIT guidelines are followed for the composition of M.S. thesis and Ph.D. dissertation committees. 

For newly admitted and entering graduate students, we are the best source of information about any aspect of graduate study at NJIT.  The Office of Graduate Studies supports all graduate programs at NJIT; alternative methods of study are directly administered and approved in this office. 

NJIT is committed to diversity among our students, faculty, and staff and to service to the State of New Jersey.  Our research focuses on cutting-edge technologies and their applications and provides exciting opportunities for our students.  We offer a variety of options for students to pursue programs at the Master’s and Doctoral level.  All our programs provide flexibility and choice of full-time or part-time study.

We are a community of modest size but with a major impact on technological graduate education, ranking highly in diversity, research activity, and number of masters and doctoral degrees. We are conveniently located near New York City in the busiest transportation hub in the United States.  We are the only public technological university in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area and have many cooperative arrangements with other universities in the region.
