Warwick Beacon: NEIT shipbuilding program graduates 11 more

CLASSMATES: Friday’s graduating class was one of the biggest the SAMI program has seen with 11 students. All 11 students were able to secure employment before graduation. Of the 217 students to go through SAMI, 201 have been hired before or directly after graduation.

By Kelcy Dolan

Since its inception in July of 2013, the SAMI program at New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) has seen nearly all of their graduates connect with employers.

The Shipbuilding/Marine and Advanced Manufacturing Institute (SAMI) has two programs, one in welding and the other in machinery. The program began in 2013 through a collaboration between NEIT and employers within the industry to create a pipeline of skilled entry-level, reliable individuals for Rhode Island employers.

Initially, the program partnered with five companies, but since then the program has grown to include 64 employers hiring SAMI students.

Two hundred and seventeen students have graduated with the program and 201 of them were hired upon or just after graduation from the 10-week program.

On Friday, April 1, SAMI had 11 individuals graduate the program, all of which had been hired by various companies with an average starting salary of $15.75. This is one of the largest graduating classes for SAMI’s machinery program, which typically averages around four to five students per session.

Robert Palumbo, SAMI program coordinator, congratulated all the graduates for not only completing the program successfully, but also for securing employment.

Palumbo noted that currently there is a lot of opportunity in the industry because of what he considered the “gray tsunami.” The industry is seeing a generation begin to retire, allowing for new positions to be open at companies across the state that allow for a lot of growth for new hires.

SAMI also provides students with academic credits should they decide to further their education as well.

Todd Sposato, SAMI’s machine training coordinator, said the reason this program is so successful is because of the close partnerships with employers.

“We can change alongside the industry, see what employers are looking for and make sure our students match that,” he said.
