Mechanical Engineering News

New England Tech Mechanical Engineering forms Quadricycle ClubStudents benefit greatly when instructors bring industry knowledge into the classroom, and that is especially true for individuals enrolled in NEIT’s Mechanical Engineering Technology (MCT) program.  Christopher Vasconcelos is an Assistant Professor in the MCT program and also serves as the advisor for the NEIT Quadricyle Club.  Similar to other faculty members, earning industry certifications and writing articles for publications are methods Chris uses to share his passion for mechanical engineering with his students.

Most recently, Chris received three certifications in machining through the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS), an organization founded in 1995 by the metalworking trade associations to develop and maintain a globally competitive workforce by setting skills standards, granting 52 NIMS skills certifications, and accrediting training programs. Congratulations to Chris for earning Metalworking Skills Certifications in Milling I, Measurement, Materials & Safety, and Job Planning, Benchwork & Layout.

Chris has also authored several publications with his latest article, the “Shortstack Twin”, appearing in the July/August 2015 issue of “The Home Shop Machinist” magazine. Since 2008, MCT associate degree students have built more than 100 similar air engines and experienced the importance of a team building approach to learning.

Seventeen students from the 5th cohort of the Associate in Science degree program in Respiratory Care were the first graduates to participate in a traditional pinning ceremony.  Working together the class created a ceremony that was very memorable. The pinning ceremony is a symbolic event serving as a transitional step when graduates begin their professional careers.  The keynote speaker was Steven Trabucco, Manager of Respiratory Care at Landmark Hospital and a strong supporter of NEIT’s Respiratory Care program since its inception. Best of luck to the graduates.

Congratulations Karen Morgenstein!
