Architectural Building Engineering Technology
Students will explore the creative process of architecture by applying design theory to a student’s own building design. Activities will be conducted in the NEIT Architectural Design Studio and will include the study of architectural design theory, architectural history, building programming, and building design. Students will also be introduced to CAD programs including Revit and Sketch. Students will use the programs to transform their designs into 3D presentation renderings.
Students will explore both basic vehicle maintenance as well as advanced technology such as scan tools, performing in-depth diagnostic testing and recommended repair procedures. Students may explore aspects of automotive collision including air brushing and Chassis dynamometer highlighting the horsepower cars develop at the rear axle.
Students will learn about how the Criminal Justice system operates in contemporary society and will participate in exciting hands-on training in areas of crime scene investigation, police operations, criminal forensics, firearms and corrections. Expected activities include fingerprinting, evidence gathering and processing, footwear and shoe impression castings, and mock cell extraction. In addition, there will be demonstrations from area professionals including the RI State Police K-9 Unit and RI State Department of Corrections.
