New England Institute of Technology

New England Institute of Technology - Warwick New England Tech is a private, non-profit technical college offering Associate's and Bachelor's Degrees in over 30 programs. Automotive programs include, Automotive Technology, Collision Training and Marine Training. Each one has been thoughtfully designed with input from both educators and industry experts. New England Tech focuses on giving each student a solid balance: a base of analytical skills with hands-on training.
Automotive Technology - Associate in Science Degree

The Automotive Technology Department at New England Technical Institute offers two automotive Associate's Degree programs: Automotive Technology (Evenings) and Advanced Automotive Technology (Days). Both curricula address the same subjects, but the Advanced Automotive Technology degree is a deeper study. These intensive courses of study in Automotive Technology prepare the student for their brand-new careers. They are educated for entry-to-industry level employment and are technically competent, offering the skills needed for rapid advancement. Students can earn their Associate's Degree in Automotive Technology or Advanced Automotive Technology as quickly as 18 months.

The Automotive Technology Program focuses on the most cutting-edge trends in the automotive arena. Students who take part in the Automotive Program, study the design, theory of operation, and servicing techniques of the multiple systems and system components of today's automobiles. Also supplied is in-depth training in engine construction and design, engine repair, electricity, electronics, suspension, steering, brakes, transmissions, fuel systems, ignition systems, and emission controls. These topics are provided to assure maximum coverage. Advanced training in air conditioning, drive trains, and transaxles is provided as well. A concluding engine performance class addresses computerized engine controls, fuel injection systems, tailpipe emissions diagnosis, and ABS braking systems.

New England Tech employs the latest industry standards, up-to-date diagnostic equipment, and Automotive Service Excellence-approved courses of study in its training program. New England Tech's automotive program is certified by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF).
High Performance Program

New England Institute of Technology offers Advanced High Performance Program in conjunction with the Automotive Technology program. The Advanced High Performance curriculum trains students on acquiring horsepower and torque by means of bolt-on performance accessories, powertrain modifications, custom powertrain tuning, and suspension tuning.

Students will possess the ability to make modifications and measure horsepower improvements on New England Tech owned vehicles or to their own vehicles on our new Chassis Dynamometer. Students will also be able to measure horsepower and torque changes produced by the addition and modification to various components, perform custom dyno-tuning on engine and transmission related components, and incur the abilities and know-how essential in developing reliable horsepower. This is for the most part a hands-on class where students will polish their skills through application and testing.

After completing some requirements in both Automotive Technology and Advanced Automotive Technology, alumni are qualified to proceed on for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Automotive Service Management Technology or Business Management Technology.
Automotive Collision Repair Technology - Associate in Science Degree

The Automotive Collision Repair Technology (ACR) program provided to create entry-level technicians prepared for employment in automotive new vehicle dealerships, independent collision repair establishments, fleet service centers and car rental organizations. NETI uses participation in classroom and lab activities, to allow students to gain the knowledge and experiences necessary to obtain an Associate in Science degree and to pursue employment at an entry level in the automotive industry or acceptance into an industry advanced level training program.

As a student you will learn all facets of auto body technology, collision repair, and refinishing. You will learn theory and practice in sheet metal repair and replacement, repair of body damage, frames and unibody, glass installation, and paint refinishing methods. Students also learn the aspects of automotive technology, which are most valuable for a thorough comprehension of auto body and collision repair (such as brakes, suspension, heating, and air conditioning).

Graduates are skilled and ready to embark a range of technician jobs in the auto body field. Additionally, after completing some prerequisites, they are qualified to continue on for a Bachelor of Science in Business Management Technology.
Marine Technology- Associate in Science Degree
The Associate's Degree in Marine Technology Program provides theory and practical training in:

* marine mechanics
* marine business concepts
* marine electricity and marine systems installation
* repair and service

Hands-on applied skills in installation, service, and repairs to mechanical, electrical, electronic, and hydraulic systems used by both recreational and commercial vessels are accented throughout the program. In addition, marine business operations are taught using computerized learning methods with marine specific software.

Instuctors in Marine Technology are factory-certified by ABYC, Volvo and Mercury Marine. The New England Tech Marine Technology Department is also the New England training site for Volvo Penta Marine with advanced training available for qualified students. Students completing the Marine Technology program may also qualify to become certified Volvo Penta Technicians.

Students can earn their Associate's Degree in Marine Technology in as fast as 18 months, days or evenings. Graduates of the associate's degree program are skilled technicians prepared for entry level careers in such areas as:

* marina/boatyard operations
