The Library Presents: Economic Espionage

The New England Tech Library will host Carmin Nigro, Special Agent, FBI Boston Counterintelligence Strategic Partnership Coordinator on November 4, 2015.  Nigro will show FBI produced short film based on an actual case, The Company Man: Protecting America’s Secrets.  After viewing the film there will be a discussion about our national security risk.

From FBI website: Economic Espionage

Economic espionage is a problem that costs the American economy billions of dollars annually and puts our national security at risk.

To raise awareness of the issue, the FBI and the National Counterintelligence and Security Center have launched a nationwide campaign and released a short film aimed at educating anyone with a trade secret about the threat and how they can help mitigate it. Based on an actual case, The Company Man: Protecting America’s Secrets illustrates how one U.S. company was targeted by foreign actors and how that company worked with the FBI to resolve the problem and bring the perpetrators to justice.

Criminal Justice Students visit Boston

25a-CJ Club  Page 6On May 15, 2015, the NEIT Criminal Justice Club took a field trip to Boston to visit the Massachusetts Law Enforcement Police Memorial. This trip coincided with National Police Memorial Day. The memorial, located in Ashbury Park, is just steps away from the Massachusetts State House. The names of all Massachusetts police officers killed in the line of duty are inscribed on the memorial including the most recent name to be added, that of Off. Sean Collier of the MIT Police Department who was killed by the terrorists responsible for the Boston Marathon Bombings.  A police officer is killed in the line of duty in the United States approximately every 56 hours.  May, 2015, saw 16 line of duty deaths nationwide.  The students also visited the finish line of the Boston Marathon, which has taken on a new meaning since the events of April, 2013.

NEIT’s online degree program ranked #1 in Rhode Island by US News

New England Tech is thrilled that US News has ranked our online program so high, not only in the United States but to be #1 here in Rhode Island is very exciting.  Especially knowing that we have more online degree programs which are being prepared to be introduced.  Be sure to stay tuned for more info about new online programs in the coming months.

From The Providence Business News:

The University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, New England Institute of Technology and Johnson & Wales University all have been recognized by U.S. News & World Report for their online bachelor’s degree programs.

The annual list, which ranks the best online bachelor’s degree programs in the country, rates colleges and universities on factors such as graduation rates, indebtedness of new graduates and academic and career support services offered to students.

“Online programs break down the barriers of time and distance for students,” UMass Dartmouth Chancellor Divina Grossman said in a statement. “For students who are working full-time jobs or have family and other responsibilities that prevent them from attending classes at a specific time or place, quality online programs are critical to them as they achieve their aspirations.”

According to U.S. News, new students admitted to nearly all ranked programs are predominantly adults aged 25 and older who have some credit already applied toward their degrees.

New England Institute of Technology ranked No. 140 on the list, but No. 1 in Rhode Island.

New England Institute of Technology, a private institution, has been offering online bachelor’s degree programs since 2012-2013. NEIT’s online program gives registered nurses with an associate in science degree the opportunity to obtain their bachelor of science degree.

Two Technologies Join Forces

RICSAROn April 6, 2015, the Criminal Justice Club hosted the Rhode Island Canine Search and Rescue Team (RICSAR) at New England Tech’s Access Road campus. The event is part of the Club’s quarterly speaker series and was attended by many NEIT students and faculty.

For this event, the Criminal Justice Club extended an invitation to NEIT’s Veterinary Technology students. This workshop was a great opportunity for students from two very different technologies to interact and perhaps pave the way for future collaborations.

Carrie Barna (pictured above), a recent NEIT Criminal Justice Technology graduate, is an active volunteer with RICSAR and was instrumental in bringing the dogs and their handlers to campus. She began her work with RICSAR as a result of her New England Tech Criminal Justine Technology internship. For more information on RICSAR, please visit their Facebook page or link
