NEIT expands engineering training

Posted 8/20/14

EAST GREENWICH – New England Institute of Technology has added high-tech industry systems to its engineering department equipment inventory to provide improved hands-on training to students in the college’s civil engineering and mechanical engineering technologies programs.

The Instron 5982 Advanced Mechanical Testing System will give students the opportunity to evaluate mechanical properties of materials and components used in a variety of industries, NEIT said. Typically found in commercial settings, the Instron 5982 is used in industries such as automotive, aerospace and major highway/bridge construction to test materials used in manufacturing. The most common uses of such mechanical testing systems are for tensile, compression, bend, peel, shear, tear and cyclic tests to determine the best material to use to manufacture a product.

NEIT added the Instron 5982 to its lab equipment inventory so engineering technology students in both the associate and bachelor’s degree programs have the chance to train with state-of-the-art equipment and acquire skills sought after by today’s employers in manufacturing and construction.

NEIT’s mechanical engineering technology program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
