New England Institute of Technology, also known as New England Tech or NEIT, is a private, nonprofit, co-educational technical university. Since 1940, we've been at the forefront of experiential, hands-on education, preparing our graduates with the knowledge, skills and technical experience that employers are increasingly seeking.

HVAC Technician - Associate in Science

The Associate in Science Degree in Refrigeration / Air Conditioning / Heating Technology is a comprehensive program designed to train the students as entry-to-industry level technicians. The program offers a curriculum combining two distinct but interrelated areas dealing with heat energy and its transfer. The curriculum includes both the theoretical and practical aspects of heating and cooling.

Graduates are prepared for positions as entry-level technicians in the refrigeration, air conditioning, and heating fields. Earn your Associate's Degree in Refrigeration / Air Conditioning / Heating / Gas Technology in as little as 18 months, days or evenings. In addition, after completing prerequisites, graduates of this program are eligible to continue on for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management Technology.

The mission of the Refrigeration/Air Conditioning Technology program is to provide an associate degree program that will prepare students with entry level skills in refrigeration and air conditioning. The study of thermodynamics, through the lessons and applied labs, will prepare the student for advancement through apprenticeship programs and continued education to qualify for HVAC license tests at state and federal levels.
