If you don't know what you want to major in or lack organizational skills you may find this school to be difficult to attend as you may fall easily behind. There is little to no tolerance for late turned in work and while some professors will allow you to do extra work for a missing grade it is not an adviced course of action here. Math and Physics are not courses for the faint of heart, if you lack an affinity for mathematics or science this school should be avoided.
The kind of person that shouldn't attend this school is a person who is looking to not really work hard an just trying to get his or her degree because at New Jersey Institute of Technology you will be challenged on all levels.
Any person looking to attend a big-time party school or somewhere easy to graduate with the least amount of effort.
Anyone who is no focused and self motivated.
A person who expects everything to come on their own or naturally. To succeed in this school socially or academically, is a deliberate effort. A person who also does not understand the nature of technical field who wants to go to a technical field should not attend this school either because there are not many options to transfer out of a technical major here. Also people who really love women because there are hardly any here.
Someone that is not comfortable in an evironment with a lot of male students
The kind that doesn't work really hard or gets their way through school by cheating. They have to have the time set aside to study and not party all the time. They must know how to keep their work and time organized.
I honestly don't know how to answer this question because I'm a Communications and Media Major and attend a Techinical Institute. I'm doing what i love here and I'm not a engineer or architect major. It all depends upon what the prospective student wishes to do with his or her life in terms of getting a degree and career choice. There's something for everyone at NJIT.
This is a very math driven school that really looks upon the study and reserch of science and technology. It does not have many artistic driven aspects to it, so the student that decides to come here should be very keen on their work. Preferably a major in architecture or engineering should be the ultimate purpose for a studentt to come here. It is a very competitive and work driven school.
