Wentworth Institute of Technology is a nationally-recognized, private, coeducational institution of higher education that offers master’s, baccalaureate degrees, associate degrees, and certificate programs, to over 3,000 students each year in the disciplines of computer science, architecture, design, engineering, management, and engineering technology. The Institute was founded in 1904 through a bequest from Arioch Wentworth, a Boston merchant, and first opened its doors in 1911. Wentworth has graduated over 50,000 students, who have assumed leadership roles in the professions, industry, education, and government. Wentworth co-op students and graduates are sought after for their demonstrated abilities to quickly become productive members in the workplace, for their technical problem-solving skills, and for their educational preparation to adapt to changing technologies.
Wentworth’s programs are developed and regularly updated through input and advice from practicing professionals who serve as members of the Industrial Professional Advisory Committees (IPAC). Through the IPAC, positive corporate/academic communication is maintained, which assists faculty with the development of state-of-the-art technological education that is responsive to the needs and latest trends in industry.
Wentworth offers baccalaureate programs in a variety of technological and design-
related fields in a cooperative education format during the day and in a part-time format through The Arioch Center @ Wentworth. The Arioch Center offers courses and programs during the evening and on the weekends for working adults who want to complete their degrees or supplement their skills. The Institute’s practical orientation has made these programs particularly attractive to continuing education students who want to develop the updated skills necessary to advance professionally.
The campus is on a thirty-five acre site on Huntington Avenue in the Fenway area of Boston, near the Museum of Fine Arts, Symphony Hall, and other Colleges of the Fenway.
