Make Series


Innovation and invention can jumpstart minds, but only when the technology and resources are put into your hands with the encouragement to dream and create. In a global world, this creative thinking process is essential to prepare you to act as a leader and innovator in a technology driven economy. Classes are held within a working makerspace, a growing movement of hands-on, mentor-led learning environments that's part classroom, part workshop and part think tank. In true entrepreneurial spirit, our Entrepreneurship Bootcamp will help you get your innovation to a successful product.


Information Technology

Is your employer encouraging additional training? We can help. A college degree is not necessarily the only vehicle for gaining credentials for a particular job. Nationally recognized certifications, certificates and non-degree programs empower individuals with the latest in-demand specialized skills in IT. For example, the outstanding quality of our User Experience Design (UXD) series has earned it national reputation for being the best UXD program available. Nearly a third of every class travels in from around the nation and throughout the world.


Professional Programs

Are you an engineer, architect, scientist or other professional? Many professionals must complete continuing education hours for license renewal, or to maintain particular level of competency in their field. We have you covered. Just look in the sidebar of our course descriptions for how many CEUs you can earn in your field.


Green Technology


Through our partnerships with the top green programs in the country, we have become New Jersey's leading provider in sustainability, renewable energy, and energy efficiency.
