About New England Institute of Technology
The New England Institute of Technology, also known as New England Tech, is a private technical school accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC). Several of its career training programs are also individually accredited.
The institute's newly renovated main campus is situated in East Greenwich, RI, and houses a library as well as video and nursing simulation laboratories. Two additional campuses are located in Warwick, RI.
The New England Institute of Technology offers 35 associate's and 15 bachelor's degree programs, including one online nursing program. Most associate's degree programs can be completed in less than two years, while some bachelor's degree programs can be completed in only three. At the graduate level, two master's degree programs are offered.
Available programs include associate's degrees in aviation science technology. Coursework combines FAA-certified flight training with academic studies to prepare graduates for positions in the commercial and corporate aviation fields. Architectural building engineering technology programs are also available. Curricula allow students in the associate's degree program to examine construction and drafting techniques, while those in the bachelor's degree program study advanced topics in building design and civil engineering.
The school also offers several health science degree programs in nursing, clinical medical assistant technology, physical therapy assistant technology and surgical technology, to name a few. Many of these programs prepare graduates to sit for their respective licensure exams, such as the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) for physical therapist assistants and the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
Other areas of study include interior design, automotive technology, software engineering and digital recording arts. Information technology and occupational therapy master's degree programs are available as well, as are technical retraining programs for employees of local businesses. The New England Institute of Technology also houses 19 student clubs and facilitates several student activities, such as open mic events, cookouts, career expos, arts exhibits and guest speakers.
Students applying to the school's associate's degree programs will need a high school diploma or GED. They must also pass a standardized assessment exam. Requirements for admission to bachelor's degree programs include an associate's degree or equivalent coursework. Students may complete an application online. Admission is granted on a rolling basis, and there is a $25 application fee. Classes begin quarterly in January, March or April, July and October.

The New England Institute of Technology offers students a fixed tuition for the length of their degree program.
