"His eyes, his fur, the rippling of his muscles and the skeleton beneath his skin, all of it is so perfectly rendered that you will swear that Richard Parker is real.”That's what...
The College of Architecture and Design offers summer programs in a state of the art university setting for exceptional high school students interested in architecture, interior design, industrial design and digital design. The program offers a full week of design exploration at a variety of scales organized around an introduction to computer graphics. During the week students develop their projects, visit the project sites, and spend a day in lower Manhattan, where they tour ongoing projects and design offices. Our instructors challenge participants to produce work of a caliber that can be included in college portfolios. On the final day, students present their projects digitally to a jury that selects several winning designs and award prizes.
The College also offers an overnight program at which students work in teams to design and build a small, fun project in a studio environment resulting in a juried selection of a winner. The overnight program offers an economical way to sample university-level design education.
In both programs, activities are organized around group meals with students, faculty and professionals in a variety of settings. Students sample college life by staying in Laurel Hall, NJIT’s Michael Graves-designed co-ed dormitory, where they are accompanied by male and female chaperones made up of NJIT faculty and students. Most chaperones are themselves alumni of the summer program.
The College has offered summer programs for over a decade and draws future designers from across the United States and Europe. Alumni of the program have gone on to study design and architecture at prestigious universities with many now employed in exciting design firms.
Acceptance into the College of Architecture and Design summer programs is based on academic standing and availability of space. A minimum combined SAT Verbal and Math score of 1050 is preferred. If SAT scores are unavailable, PSAT scores or class rank may be submitted to qualify.
Registration fees for both programs include all meals, overnight accommodations in residence halls and all costs associated with any off-campus field trips.
