In 1964, the Newark College of Engineering granted its first Doctoral Degree in Chemical Engineering. To date, NJIT has awarded more than 1,500 Doctorates. Prior to 1990 the doctoral degree awarded by institution was the Doctor of Engineering Science. These dissertations are included here with the PhD dissertations. The library has accepted electronic submissions since 2010 and has been digitizing new theses and dissertations since 2000. We continue to digitize our catalog working backwards and by request.

The Robert W. Van Houten Library provides this service in an effort to make our graduates’ research more widely available.
