Research in Games

NJIT is an active research university.  We boast a number of ongoing research projects that involve games in one way or another.  Games are used in research as vehicles for education and rehabilitation as well as foundations for research into new technologies such as virtual, augmented, and mixed realities.  Our game development students are often involved in the ongoing research performed in other departments.  Here are some prominent examples on how games are being used to further faculty research.
