NJIT was ranked by the Princeton Review as one of the top undergraduate schools in which to study video game design.
Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design
Interior designers bring a sensitivity to and knowledge of color and space, user needs, building materials and systems, lighting and cultural awareness to the design of spaces within buildings. Located alongside the well-established architecture program at the School of Art + Design, the four-year Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design prepares students to enter the profession of interior design, first as interns, and ultimately take the NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) examination.
Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design
From the creation of the iPod to furniture to children's toys, industrial designers combine skills from art and engineering as they travel the road from conceiving an idea, to production, packaging and selling. As part of the School of Art + Design, the Industrial Design program benefits from a creative environment where students from architecture, interior design, fine arts, digital design and industrial design interact to form new synergies. This exposure to and cross-fertilization of design disciplines prepare Industrial Design students for professional practice both as independent artist and consultants, or as part of a larger design team.
