New Jersey Center for Science, Technology & Mathematics

The New Jersey Center for Science, Technology & Mathematics (NJCSTM) offers a vibrant teaching and research environment dedicated to preparing a new generation of innovators for careers as professional scientists, physicians and educators.  At NCJSTM we combine science and research in an innovative honors curriculum that strives to instill the critical thinking and problem solving skills needed to succeed in today’s scientifically and technologically advanced world.  Through our Research First Initiative (RFI), we are transforming the way that science and mathematics are taught by enabling students to join faculty-sponsored research teams and learn through actual laboratory experience.  With outstanding academic degree options, engaged faculty and exceptional student support services, NJCSTM provides a rich and supportive learning environment that has achieved unparalleled success in graduation rates and career placement.  NJCSTM offers both B.S. and combined B.S./M.S. honors degree programs in science, engineering and education.

Accordion Body: 

NJCSTM is housed in a striking, state-of-the-art 133,000 sq. ft. educational facility, with teaching and research laboratories, classrooms, a 320 seat auditorium for workshops, lectures, conferences and other major events, and a 630 person atrium for meeting exhibits, break-out and poster sessions, and social education events.

Modern classroom space includes 25,000 sq. ft. of flex lab teaching space and prep rooms, along with 5 classrooms.  Teaching laboratories include 20,000 sq. ft. of fully functioning and equipped laboratories for chemistry, mathematics, computational science, molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology, cell culture and physics.

Faculty research laboratories include 20,000 sq. ft. of wet and computational research labs with lab support and equipment rooms for core chemistry, molecular and cellular biology equipment including NMR, mass spectrometry, HPLCs, DNA sequencing, cell sorting, microscopy, and super-computer facilities.

NJCSTM is home to the only 3D Virtual Reality Computer Assisted Visual Enhancement (CAVE) system in the greater NY-NJ metropolitan area.  The CAVE system is capable of displaying images and data for both research and teaching purposes.  Students working on CAVE projects put to use computer programming skills learned in class and adapt gaming theory and data analysis applications to scientific problems.
