About WIT

Wentworth Institute of Technology provides both challenging academics and integrated learning opportunities, which require students to work hands-on, both in class and in the community.

Located in historic Boston, Massachusetts, Wentworth offers bachelor’s and graduate degrees in a number of engineering fields including biomedical, computer, electromechanical and electrical engineering. Wentworth also has programs in architecture, computer science, industrial design and construction management.

What’s particularly outstanding about Wentworth’s program is the three-part learning model. That is, students engage in classroom learning, laboratory work and a co-op or work experience related to their major.

Students in bachelor’s programs undertake two semesters of a co-operative work experience with the option to do a third semester. Since co-ops are directly connected to one’s area of study, all work undertaken is relevant.

Another benefit of the co-op experience is that it counts towards one’s degree. However, students do not pay tuition and, in fact, earn a salary during their co-op.

Upon graduating, approximately 40% of students actually go on to work full-time at the company or organization where they did their co-op. Whether students do or do not get hired by their co-op employer they have access to career advisors who help them with interviewing and job search techniques and offer career fairs, job referrals and other services.

Eligible Wentworth students receive financial aid through such standard sources as grants and loans.
