NEIT Earns Distinctive Military Friendly® Schools Designation

2016_Military Friendly_Logo_150x150EAST GREENWICH, RI – New England Institute of Technology announced today that the university has received the Military Friendly® Schools designation joining more than 1400 higher-education institutions in the United States who have been recognized for exhibiting leading practices in recruiting and supporting post-military students.

Developed through more than a decade of research by veteran-owned Victory Media headquartered in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Military Friendly® ratings and resources provide service members and their families with information needed to make decisions about civilian careers and education opportunities. Veterans benefit when companies and schools invest in engaging, educating and employing them.

New England Tech’s data was compiled through Military Friendly® Schools annual survey open to more than 10,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. Each year, schools completing the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria, and weightings developed with the assistance of an advisory board. Research findings are compiled and weighted according to the following categories to determine a final score:  academic credibility, support on campus, admissions and orientation, graduation and retention rates, military student body composition, career outcomes, government approvals, tuition assistance, flexibility, and military spouse policies.

Many employers contact the Career Services Office at New England Institute of Technology seeking military and veteran students and NEIT graduates for job opportunities. Patricia Blakemore, Director of Career Services stated, “Our military students and grads are highly prepared for the job market through the education they receive at New England Tech coupled with their military training.   These individuals are a most sought after group of candidates by prospective employers.”

Through NEIT’s Financial Aid Office, a full time VA Coordinator reviews all applicable VA programs and benefits with each military and veteran student and assists with the application process.  “New England Tech honors the Post 911 Bill, the Yellow Ribbon Program, as well as numerous other forms of financial aid that support higher education and personal development of veterans,” stated Anna Kelly, Director of Financial Aid.  “We offer our computer lab to those individuals who wish to complete their application in the Financial Aid Office, and our staff is always available to assist as needed.” Additional information may be found at http://www.neit.edu/Financial-Aid/Veterans-Benefits.

New England Tech Ranked One of the Best Small Colleges

DegreeMatch.org-2015-Awards-Best-ISTP-Match-300x252Exciting News from DegreeMatch.org:

New England Institute of Technology has been identified as having one of the best small colleges for ISTP Myers-Briggs personality types in our recent ranking. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Test (MBTI) is the most common personality measure in the United States. A student with the ISTP personality type is someone who is creative, optimistic, and loves to work with their hands.

The ranking considered overall cost of attendance, student to faculty ratio, inclusion on notable lists, ranking by U.S. News and World Report, and number of ISTP areas of study.

New England Institute of Technology has been ranked as #15.

This ranking highlights the top 30 small colleges for those with an ISTP personality.

About ISTP Personality Types

The ISTP Personality is referred to as “the Virtuoso” and considered an Explorer. These are people who love to explore the world with their hands. They are “makers” who love to move between projects and take things apart to see how they work. From a very early age, this Myers-Briggs personality type loves to tinker. Some of their best attributes include their optimism, energy, creativity, practicality, knowing how to prioritize tasks; they are excellent in a crisis and remain relaxed at all times. To some they may seem “simple” or not highly intelligent, but this is NOT often the case. This blend of traits makes for a very enigmatic person who can also be spontaneous and unpredictable. Some of their potential negative attributes include being stubborn, insensitive, reserved, easily bored, disliking commitment and sometimes even engaging in risky behavior. Some of the best ISTP jobs include mechanic, engineering, graphic design, forensic science, construction, farming, emergency medicine and landscape architect.

NEIT to Offer Hybrid Bachelor Degree in Rehabilitation Sciences

 

RehabScienceEAST GREENWICH, RI – Dr. Douglas H. Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology (NEIT), announced that the university will offer a new Bachelor of Science degree program in Rehabilitation Sciences (BS to RS). This innovative inter-professional program offers students the opportunity to support individuals with disabilities to regain functional independence through the analysis of physical, cognitive, and perceptual skills and then provide interventions using clinical reasoning and advanced analytical processes.

The BS to RS program utilizes assistive technology interventions so students will engage in hands-on learning to maximize an individual’s engagement in activities within their home, work, school and community environments. Students will work with inter-professional team members as they advance their knowledge in disability rights, services and advocacy.  This program will be delivered in a hybrid format with students meeting on campus approximately five times per quarter, every other week, allowing them to complete their education utilizing a flexible schedule.

Knowledge in physical rehabilitation, assistive technology and occupational science prepares students for career advancement in healthcare, patient advocacy, or graduate studies in occupational therapy, engineering-related fields, physical therapy, sports medicine or architectural design. Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants may be eligible for advanced standing in the Master of Science degree program in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) also offered at NEIT upon partial completion of the BS to RS program.

Sherman stated, “This new hybrid program provides an advanced degree for students with an associate degree in healthcare or related fields.  Utilizing hands-on applications, technological interventions, and environmental modifications, students learn best practices to promote functional independence and enhance the care of individuals with disabilities.  The BS to RS degree also prepares students for application to graduate studies in various fields.”

The BS to RS program will be offered in July, 2016.  For more information, contact NEIT’s Admissions office at 800-736-7744, 401-467-7744, or NEITAdmissions@neit.edu. Visit www.neit.edu for a complete program description and curriculum.
