New Jersey Institute of Technology is a great school. The faculty has a very hands-on approach to the education they provide, and there is no doubt it is one of the best public schools around in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). At the same time, this means the classes are very challenging. Students will, without a doubt, need a significant amount of studying time. Few students go through their academic careers at NJIT without pulling at least one "all-nighter."
Any student entering the honors program has the added benefit of the honors faculty, who will work hand in hand with students to make sure their educational goals are being met. The student will have to make sure they are available when the faculty is, because those of the Albert Dorman Honors College tend to be very busy. However, students should not come to this school without any academic pursuits in mind. If a student may be considering a humanities or social sciences major, this is the wrong school. The courses a student will need to take in the departments of humanities and other social sciences are little more than a course that ensures the students can write well enough to communicate data and cite their sources.
