NEIT Announces Three New Programs

New England Tech is now offering three new associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in response to the growing needs of the ever-changing labor market, demonstrating once again NEIT’s commitment to employer-driven education. The new programs are as follows.

Paramedic Technology is the newest addition to NEIT’s health science programs.  This Associate in Science Degree program prepares licensed Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) to provide care for patients. Paramedic Technology provides entry-level opportunities for students to pursue a career as pre-hospital care providers.  Paramedics work in the fast-paced world of emergency medicine in such settings as rescue vehicles, hospitals, home health care, long-term care, healthcare clinics, public health, and outpatient care. They are eligible to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician paramedic level exam. Throughout the curriculum, students engage in clinical and laboratory experiences to complement classroom learning. Classes will begin October, 2015.

The hybrid Criminal Justice Bachelor of Science Degree program was developed for public safety professionals. Designed to be convenient, relevant and flexible for the working professional, this program offers fully online courses but also combines online activities with face-to-face classroom and lab experiences. Candidates for this program must have criminal justice experience including either an Associate in Science Degree in Criminal Justice or college credit equivalent towards an Associate Degree, along with work  experience in law enforcement, public safety, corrections, security or military service. Applicants with fewer college credits, but who have substantial criminal justice experience, may request a portfolio review to assess their eligibility for the program. The first cohort of students began this program in the Spring, 2015, quarter, with the next group beginning this fall.

The fully online Construction Management Master of Science degree program is set to begin in the Fall 2015 quarter. Candidates for this master’s level program must possess a Bachelor of Architecture Degree or a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture, Architectural Engineering Technology, Civil Engineering, Civil Engineering Technology, Interior Design, Construction Management, Planning, Business, Finance, or Management or a degree in a related field from an accredited institution. Individuals with significant professional experience may also be considered in lieu of an appropriate degree and will be evaluated individually. Candidates with no professional experience or prior education in the field may want to consider the college’s Bachelor of Science Degree program in Construction Management.

The online format program is designed for a broad spectrum of busy working construction-related professionals seeking to advance their careers through the combination of advanced technical courses and an integrated management core.  The curriculum blends modern construction management theory, best-practices, and technical skills with the contemporary business management principles that drive 21st century organizational performance.

Youths figure out ‘whodunit’ at police camp

New England Tech’s Criminal Justice program has won the Gold medal at the National SkillsUSA competition for two consecutive years. And yes, we are pretty proud of that accomplishment. But now New England Tech is helping the Warwick Youth Leadership camp and the Warwick Police Department and Youth Advisory Prevention Task Force work with young crime solvers.

From the Warwick Beacon:

WHODUNIT? In a mock crime scene at the NETECH forensic labs, Hannah French, Daphne Eckert, Mackenzie Manning and Olivia Gilbert record every detail with rulers, cameras and a notepad. Each girl had her own roles from photographer to note taker.

The next generation of crime solvers spent Wednesday at the New England Institute of Technology’s (NEIT) forensic lab.

The Warwick Youth Leadership Camp, run by the Warwick Police Department and Youth Advisory & Prevention Task Force, took campers from 11 to 14 years old to the labs to experience mock crime scenes and test the campers’ detective skills.

After a preliminary meeting to teach the children the basics of investigation, they were broken into groups to explore the crime scenes. Although no crime was committed, the campers took pictures of the rooms, getting every last detail. They fingerprinted corners and windows.

Detective Barbara Frazier, who instructed the children, said, “We want the kids to have a better understanding of what we do, a look behind the scenes. We also provide them with a better idea of how to react, say if a friend’s bike got stolen. It is easier calling the police if you have an idea of who they are.”

Mackenzie Manning, a camper and note taker for the crime scene, said, “We learn what the police do and then try it for ourselves. It’s a lot of fun.”

School Resource Officers (SRO) of Warwick run the four-day camp, which has had two more sessions this summer. They work at the junior%
