College Factual, a leading source of college data analytics and insights, has ranked NJIT’s information systems program the best in the United States.
The program was ranked 1 out of 333 nationwide and ranked 1 out of 14 in New Jersey, making it the best IS program in the state and the country for the second year in a row.
Housed within Ying Wu College of Computing, which boasts the largest computing program in the tri-state region, NJIT’s IS division recently moved into the newly formed Department of Informatics.
With a strong emphasis on technical application, the department offers students a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programs and data-intensive research opportunities that focus on the integration, design, deployment and management of computing and networking resources and services.
"We are very excited about this newest achievement,” says Yi-Fang Brook Wu, associate professor and chair of the informatics department. “With the field of information systems advancing so rapidly, our faculty and degree programs strive to stay current with the latest industry standards. We couldn’t have achieved the #1 ranking without the wonderful students, staff and faculty. This honor belongs to everyone.”
