New England Institute of Technology last week unveiled a new 11,000 sq. ft. veterinary technology “learning lab,” featuring state-of-the-art industry equipment and medical devices. Students enrolled in the associate’s degree program will have access to high-tech nursing laboratories, surgical suites, dental laboratories, computer labs and classrooms.

These upgraded labs provide an immersive and experiential learning experience, allowing students to apply their knowledge and skills in a practical and real-world setting. The new labs continue to align NEIT’s mission in technical, hands-on education. Currently there are 40 vet tech students in the program which can be completed in 18 months. With the new space, NEIT is looking to double that number. Learn more HERE.
