On November 9, 2018, NJIT launched its newest school, the School of Applied Engineering and Technology (SAET), within the university’s Newark College of Engineering (NCE). SAET encompasses NCE’s engineering technology programs in two divisions (Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Technology Division and the Built Environment Division); the baccalaureate degree General Engineering program; and a division focused on Engineering Education practice and research. SAET serves about 1,000 NJIT students.  The SAET offers Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) degrees in nine different options, as well as, Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees in Concrete Industry Management (CIM), and General Engineering.

The Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Technology Division (SEMD) consists of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET), Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET), Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MNET), Computer Technology (CPT), and Medical Informatics (MIT) programs. 

The options in Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology, and Mechanical Engineering Technology accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC of ABET) http://abet.org

Many students choose to complete their freshman and sophomore years at a community college or a technical institute, and obtain an associate's degree in applied science from these institutions. It is strongly recommended that students talk to an academic advisor at NJIT while they are still pursuing their associate's degree. The academic advisor will explain the transfer process in detail as well as suggest elective courses that may be beneficial. Contact an advisor by calling the School of Applied Engineering and Technology at (973) 596-3228, or by email at EngineeringTechnology@njit.edu.

After being admitted to NJIT, students must meet with an academic advisor to discuss the curriculum and any special interests the student might have. Students who lack necessary courses will be assigned bridge courses to make up the required prerequisites. Generally, courses taken at the freshman and sophomore level at the community colleges cannot substitute for junior or senior NJIT engineering technology courses.  Engineering technology is that part of the technological field which requires the application of scientific and engineering knowledge and methods, combined with technical skills, for the implementation and extension of existing technologies. Engineering technology education focuses on preparing engineering technologists for positions that involve product development and improvement, system development, management, manufacturing and engineering operational functions. Graduates also enter the technical sales and customer services field, or continue in graduate work in engineering or management. Placement of graduates has been excellent.
