A recent report from The New York Times ranks NJIT #1 nationally for colleges with the highest percentage of students from the bottom fifth of the income distribution who end up in the top three-fifths. The study is based on new data analysis by The Equality of Opportunity Project which compares the financial status of a student’s family before they enter college and the graduate’s earnings after college.
In one response to the ranking, NJIT President Joel S. Bloom stated, “Our students know that an NJIT degree is both affordable and a catalyst for career success. The fact that our students graduate with an average of nearly three job offers in hand and starting salaries almost 20 percent above the national average shows that they will receive an immediate and lasting return on their educational investment.”
NJIT President Named Educator of the Year
NJIT President Joel S. Bloom has been named Educator of the Year by the American Council of Engineering Companies of New Jersey (ACECNJ), the leading advocate for New Jersey’s consulting engineering profession, which strives to enhance the business practices of professional engineering companies in the planning, design and construction industry.
The honor will be bestowed at ACECNJ’s 46th Engineering Excellence Awards Banquet on March 15, 2017. Each year ACECNJ hosts the Engineering Excellence Awards, a program that celebrates and recognizes recent accomplishments of New Jersey’s engineering industry and contributions that members and member firms have made to society and to their local communities through exceptional engineering design and construction.
Of the award, President Bloom said, “I am very grateful for this recognition, because it is the result of partnerships that NJIT has fostered with industry to both advance innovation and to prepare our students for extraordinary career success upon and long after graduation.”
