For more than six decades, New England Institute of Technology has been the leader in providing technical education in southeastern New England.
The private, non-profit technical college offers 28 areas of study, with degrees at both the associate and bachelor level. With programs designed alongside industry experts, New England Tech educates students with a combined emphasis on hands-on training and analytical skills. Like many technical schools, a majority of the students at the New England Institute of Technology are non-traditional students, that is they did not enter directly out of high school.
At its inception in 1940, the school was a certificate-granting school. New leadership in 1971 thought it would be more beneficial if the school granted degrees, and over the next decade, the Board of Regents of the State of Rhode Island granted the Institute the authority to offer accredited associate and bachelors degrees. After its humble beginnings in an old mill-style building in Providence, Rhode Island, the campus now makes its home in two locations in Warwick, Rhode Island. With seven buildings and approximately 204,000 square feet of state-of-the-art classroom, laboratory, faculty and administrative office space, it is equipped to educate its students in the comforts of a modern setting.
With professionals sitting on curriculum-development committees, New England Tech strives to gear its programs to what graduates will need when they embark on job searches. By offering degrees in such fields as mechanical/electronics engineering technology, automotive technology, surgical technology and video and radio production, New England Tech claims its position as an institution dedicated to offering in-depth knowledge of modern technical professions.
