The Grainger Foundation, an independent, private foundation, has donated $5,000.00 to New England Institute of Technology in support of the college’s mission to provide students with a hands-on technical education.

Getting an education in Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration can be a wonderful first step towards a rewarding and interesting career.

For these students, earning a Bachelor’s Degree from one of the schools on this list is a great place to start. Represented here are HVAC Bachelor’s Degree programs as well as programs that are natural extensions of a beginning HVAC education, including facilities management and operations management .

At the New England Institute of Technology in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, students can pursue a two-year degree in HVAC. From there, graduates are eligible to continue their studies at NEIT and pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management Technology. Graduates of this program will have a fundamental understanding of HVAC technologies in addition to background in the technologies that are driving global business overall.
