Nationally, more than 6,800 students competed in 108 occupational, leadership and skill competition areas, including 87 students from Rhode Island.

Earlier this year, New England Institute of Technology students won eight medals overall and took GOLD in each of the four categories that they competed in during the SkillsUSA 42nd annual Rhode Island state Awards and Recognition Ceremony at the Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in Providence.

SkillsUSA programs help to establish industry standards for job skill training in the classroom. These industry-driven competitive events are modeled after the Olympics where the top three individuals/ teams receive gold, silver, or bronze medals.

NEIT Students Build Replica of Henry Ford’s Quadricycle – the First Motored Vehicle

Henry Ford QuadricycleAn ambitious project begun in 2013 by students in New England Tech’s Mechanical Engineering program to build a full-scale working replica of Henry Ford’s first motored vehicle is nearing completion. Ford’s Quadricycle was completed in 1896, a full 15 years before he started mass production of Model T and Model A vehicles.

The Quadricycle used a 2-cylinder; 4-cycle ethanol engine, that is essentially the same engine used in modern vehicles. Ford made only two models of the Quadricycle, and only a handful of replicas have ever been built.

Under the supervision of Assistant Professor Christopher Vasconcelos, students handcrafted most of the parts for the vehicle on campus with the exception of only a few purchased parts. They used blueprints created decades later by long-time Ford Motor company employee George DeAngelis, who had gathered every written description New England Tech Mechanical Engineering forms Quadricycle Cluband photograph he could find. The historic car sat in an enclosed display case, so DeAngelis estimated his initial measurements through the glass.

Armed with these materials, the New England Tech team got to work – and the project soon went global. Vasconcelos posted the project on the international web forum Home Model Engine Machinist, and it started receiving interest, support, and collaboration from forum members worldwide. Soon after, regional suppliers also got involved, offering select parts and components.

The project included some modern modifications for safety. Ford’s original model had no braking system – the driver needed to use his or her foot against the front wheel to slow or stop the vehicle. The New England Tech model is incorporating a modern mechanical braking system. Other modifications include store-bought spark plugs, original Model-T ignition coils, and a standard carburetor.

As of May 2018 the vehicle is fully operational

The engine has been tested numerous times on blocks. Further testing of the engine and safety precautions are in place, and the goal is to have New England Tech President Richard Gouse take the Quadricycle for a spin sometime over the summer.

Film Starring and Co-Produced by New England Tech Grad Wins Best Film and Best Actor Awards at International Film Festival

New England Institute of Technology graduate Adam Carbone has co-produced and plays the lead role in a film titled “Randy’s Canvas.” The film made its West Coast premiere on April 29 in Beverly Hills, CA as part of the second annual AutFest International Film Festival by the Autism Society of America, and landed awards for Best Film, and Best Actor for Carbone’s breakout performance.

The film revolves around a high-functioning autistic character named Randy (played by Carbone), who is trying to get his artwork displayed in an art gallery. His pursuit turns into an obsession, along with his relationship with a female who is involved in a relationship with another man.

Randy’s Canvas stood out amongst studio-level projects including Power Rangers, Please Stand By and the hit television shows, Netflix’s Atypical and ABC’s The Good Doctor.

The film was shot in various locations in Rhode Island in the summer of 2016, including scenes shot at New England Tech. Adam received an associate’s degree in video and audio production from New England Tech before he moved to L.A. to pursue his film career.

The film was co-executive produced by RI-local Dick LeBeau and was directed and co-written by Sean Michael Beyer. Co-producers included Beyer and Carbone. It was Beyer who thought of Carbone for the role of Randy. Carbone then suggested making the movie in Rhode Island.

Filling out the cast are Scout Taylor-Compton (Halloween, The Runaways), Kevin G. Schmidt (Cheaper By the Dozen, The Chipmunks, Butterfly Effect), Shawn Pyfrom (Desperate Housewives), Massi Furlan (The Dark Knight Rises) and character-actor Richard Riehle (The Fugitive, Casino, Glory) as well as a cast of solid local talent.

“For the first time in my life, I felt I was right where I was supposed to be . . . shook, ecstatic and honored,” said Adam. “Much love to everyone involved.”

Carbone and Beyer have worked together on other projects, including a cooking show. For this project, they wanted to be respectful of the subject matter. They spent time researching autism and meeting with young adults and teens to talk about how autism should and should not be portrayed.

AutFest’s goal is to increase awareness of autism through the medium of film in order to promote a greater knowledge of the important value of individuals with autism. The producers of Randy’s Canvas plan to do additional screenings in Rhode Island later this year and will announce its U.S. and worldwide release very soon.

10 Fastest-Growing Flex-Time Jobs for 2018

New England Tech offers degree programs for 6 of these 10 fastest-growing 2018 occupations

The New Year is a natural time for many to assess their lives and careers. If you’re thinking about a career move in 2018, your timing is great. With the lowest unemployment rate in 17 years (4.1%) the labor market is tight, which means 2018 should be favorable for most job seekers.

Among the top dissatisfiers in the job market across all industry segments is a lack of flexibility in the traditional work week schedule. Whether it’s because of a child or parent care responsibilities, or just a desire to work flexible hours or a percentage of time telecommuting, a growing percentage of the workforce is seeking career options that offer some kind of flexible schedule.

In fact, according to a report published in December 2017 by FlexJobs, a job service company that helps clients find flexible jobs, workers who say they’ve quit a job due to lack of flexi-time has increased from 17% in 2014 to 32% in 2017.

This trend is happening on both sides, as an increasing number of employers are outsourcing their staffing needs. Many are embracing the “just in time” temporary staffing model or downsizing permanent full-time employees in favor of hiring freelance workers.

FlexJobs has compiled a list of the 10 fastest-growing jobs in the U.S. which regularly come with flex-time options, such as a part-time schedule, a telecommuting arrangement, a flexible work week schedule, or freelance work. New England Institute of Technology offers degree programs for six of these 10 career paths.

How the Fastest-Growing Flexible Jobs Were Determined
To identify these fastest-growing jobs that routinely offer flexible time options, FlexJobs compared the fastest-growing occupations from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to available jobs in its own company database. These 10 occupations, ordered from highest to lowest, have the highest predicted growth rate and also offer flex-time work options. Each of these occupations is projected to grow at least 25% over the next eight years.

10 Fastest-Growing Flex-Time Careers for 2018

  1. Physician Assistants: 37% projected growth
  2. Nurse Practitioners: 36% projected growth
  3. Physical Therapist Assistants: 31% projected growth
  4. Software Developers, Applications: 30% projected growth
  5. Mathematicians: 29% projected growth
  6. Medical Assistants: 29% projected growth
  7. Occupational Therapy Assistants: 29% projected growth
  8. Information Security Analysts: 28% projected growth
  9. Genetic Counselors: 28% projected growth
  10. Operations Research Analysts: 27% projected growth

If you’re looking to make a career move in 2018 that includes a profession with flexible work hours, New England Tech can help you launch a career in six of the 10 fastest growing careers that offer flexible hours. Apply today to get started.
