Mark your calendars!

The College of Architecture and Design’s (CoAD) spring 2018 Evening Lecture Series is set to commence Feb. 5.

The series brings nationally and internationally recognized architects, academics and allied professionals to NJIT to discuss their current work and developments in the professions of architecture and design.

Lecturers bring diverse experiences and viewpoints to our students, faculty and the greater university community.



Since 2007, an endowment established with the American Institute of Architects New Jersey Chapter (AIANJ) has increased the breadth of the lecture series by allowing for the establishment of the AIANJ Endowed Lecture each April and a symposium​ each fall. 

Lectures are held on Mondays at 5 p.m. in Weston Lecture Hall I (unless otherwise noted), and are free and open to the public. For more information or reservations please call (973) 596-3080.

The CoAD Evening Lecture Series is registered with the AIA Continuing Education System (AIA/CES) and offers learning units, which may be self-reported. The New Jersey School of Architecture is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board and is in compliance with all criteria standards.
