The New Hampshire Technical Institute (NHTI) and the six New Hampshire Vocational-Technical Colleges (NHVTC) offer collegiate education preparing individuals for direct employment in business, industry, health, and service-related fields. At the completion of the 1982-83 academic year, 1,029 students had graduated from 44 different programs offered by the college/institute system. As of November 1, 1983, 94% of the graduates had been satisfactorily placed; i.e., 76.5% were employed full-time, 3% were employed part-time, 7.5% were continuing their education, and 1% had joined the armed forces. Of the employed graduates, 95% were working in a job directly or closely related to their college program, and many had been placed as a result of the lifetime placement service provided by each institution. Graduates continued to show a preference for attending college, working, and living in New Hampshire, with 91% of the employed graduates working in the state. Working graduates earned an average annual salary of $13,533. The bulk of the report consists of tables providing placement data separately for NHTI and NHVTC graduates. A section on the degree programs and adult education and apprenticeship courses offered through the system's extension services, and a list of employers who interviewed NHTI/NHVTC graduates are also included.
