NJIT was established in 1881 under the name “Newark Technical School”. It was created to assess Newark’s rapidly growing industrial economy. The creation of the technical school obtained the sponsorship of the Newark Board of Trade with an additional grant of equal amount from New Jersey’s state legislature. Furious fund-raising activities were conducted by both the public and private sectors which allowed the new school to fully operate in 1884. The first students, a total of 88, attended classes in drawing, mathematics and science, subjects which were viewed as necessary to produce a capable industrial work force. Numerous developments led to the establishment of several facilities within the school. In 1919, the school was renamed into the Newark College of Engineering and finally in 1975, it became a full-fledged technological school and was thus renamed into the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
